Here’s another TV show from our friends over in Japan. This one is again composed by Yutaka Yamada with musical direction by Kohei Chida, the team behind Tokyo Ghoul. This was a fun project. It’s all about Yankees! In Japan “yankee” refers to delinquent youths. Rebels and water polo…Who knew?!
I mixed this show from my home studio in L.A. I love mixing from home as I get to have cups of tea brought to me by my lovely wife Fiona when she takes a writing break… which isn’t very often. My studio setup is very simple. Pro Tools. Apogee clock. Two MacPros, if needed for large mixes. I mix all “in-the-box” at home, which is what I do at Remote Control as well. Mixing in the box is so helpful for recalls, when 6 months down the road a client asks for one stem to be split out, which happens all of the time. In fact one doing a recall tonight for a client how decided that the original stem list they gave me 8 months ago, needs to be revised. So I have to recall of the mixes and re-stem out everything. And it has to sounds EXACTLY the same. You simply can’t do that with outboard analog gear. I miss playing with big knobs as much as the next guy, but in today’s marketplace there isn’t any need for it unfortunately. Want, yes. Need no.
Stay thirsty my friends.
