Frank Filipetti on Mixing in the Box
Frank Filipetti was one of the first engineers to explore the world of digital audio, and in the decades since has established himself as one of the world's preeminent producers and engineers, winning multiple Grammy awards. Now, in Frank Filipetti on Mixing in the Box, he gives us an inside look at how to achieve the best mix, both stereo and surround, using a digital audio workstation. Filipetti takes us through the mixing process from choosing gear, your DAW, and plug-ins, to setting up a proper mixing template. And setting up your virtual console, to organizing tracks, group busses, and sends. He shares the wonders of accurate parallel signal processing, how to maximize loudness while still retaining dynamic range, and proper monitoring. Also featured is an interview of Filipetti conducted by fellow METAlliance producer and engineer Elliot Scheiner.
