Learn How To Mix a Pop Song in Studio One
In this three part video series, Fab Dupont takes a live recording of Jay Stolar’s ‘Fall Apart’ and turns it into a finished mix. Presonus Studio One was used for the entire recording and mixing process.

This video is great for any songwriter or producer working with live bands. You will learn ways to make real instruments sound punchy and present in a modern way.

Using Studio One’s built in plug-ins (ProEQ, Channel Strip, Expander, Compressor) as well as lots more from UAD (Pultec, Studer A800, 1176LN, Fairchild, DBX160, Roland R-201, Cooper Time Cube, Moog Filter, EMT250, Lexicon 224, EMT140, RS1, Precision Bus Compressor), Softube (Focusing Eq, Fet Compressor, TSAR-1 Reverb, Bass Amp Room) and Soundtoys (Echoboy) Fab takes the song from raw tracks to finished product in a little less than two hours.

He mixes drums, bass, guitar, keyboards, vocals, comparing microphones when several are available (Original mic placements are shown) making choices based on the song context and the final desired results. Many mixing techniques are addressed including parallel compression and space design with multiple reverbs. You will also learn about transients management and tune a vocal track with taste.

Half way through the process, the mixing session turns into a recording session again when Fab realizes a hole in the arrangement. The whole process is documented live and integrated the series where he finishes the song and lets us compare before and after sounds.

The attached zip file contains the original uncompressed files of the session. Please download it and import these files in the DAW you use to make music. This way you can practice your skills and mix this song using your own tastes, tools, plug-ins and the guidelines provided in this video.

Mixing Jay Stolar in Presonus Studio One: Trailer
This is the trailer of our video Mixing Jay Stolar in Studio One. Available at [site] In this video, Fab mixes a trio recorded live in real time conditions. This is a full mixing tutorial, top to bottom where the main challenge is to manage the bleed that has been captured in every microphone and the limitations of very close miking. This tutorial focuses on the limitations of handling every single track individually when a lot of bleed in involved, like concert recordings or full band recordings in one room, and shows you how to use bleed to your advantage. Done in Pro Tools, during the Audiodays seminar , the tutorial features the new Avid channel strip, Softube and Flux plug-ins. Fab also uses hardware from Tube-Tech PE 1C Equalizer, Tube-Tech CL 1B Compressor, and Dave Hill Design Titan Compressor. Will Knox gives a rousing rendition of his song 'The ship and the storm' accompanied by drums, and cello.
