Sometimes you get projects in the studio that for one reason never quite meet your satisfaction. You feel like you owe the talent something more than you were able to produce in the time allotted with the many hats you’re wearing and everything literally gets lost in the mix. Sophia Howes is a talent you don’t get behind you’re microphone every day. She brought Zoe to life in the one audio drama I ever wrote myself and her singing voice is phenomenal. Here’s the mix I wanted to give you Sophia.
1) Backups, backups, backups. I lost all of the original takes for the vocals to the ether of disappearing backups.
2) Take the time to get the mix right, but have a deadline. Otherwise, you’ll be on mix 127 at 3 am weeks from now.
