REQ: MixWithTheMasters Churchill Downs Jack Harlow feat. Drake
Hosted at Rue Boyer studios in Paris, this instalment features Leslie Brathwaite deconstructing his mix of ‘Churchill Downs’ by Jack Harlow featuring Drake.
The Grammy Award-winning engineer walks you through the multi-track session, revealing the signal chains he received then explaining how and why he made subtle changes.
While this alone is very insightful, the series contains an exciting twist unlike any previously released – Leslie challenges himself to remix the entire project using only Pro Tools stock plug-ins! Besides implementing tools he had never tried before, Brathwaite also restricts himself to inserting as few as possible. Upon comparing his original mix to the new one, you may be as surprised at the result as he was. The experience highlights a sacred audio engineering proverb — “It’s not about the gear; it’s about the ear!”
