Description: Join iconic rock engineer Tom Lord Algie, a mixer of alternative and punk anthems from Blink-182, Avril Lavigne, Hanson and many more. In this episode, we sit next to Tom as he plunges into the multitrack session of Sum 41’s breakout release “Fat Lip”. At Studios La Fabrique, he explores the original analog recording and mixing process, demonstrates how sound can be improved in a digital environment, and reveals his techniques for effectively splitting drums, triggering, flanging and more. Working with ITB with console summing, you’ll see Tom’s bold use of effects, heavy compression, smart editing, and EQ in Pro Tools. It also covers the important issues of setup and session control, phase consistency, and fader-assisted gain versus plug-ins. TLA concludes by comparing its three mixes – the analog original, the new hybrid (ITB with analog summation and compression of the mix) and the new digital (100% ITB).
