Description: Welcome to Tarquin Studios for a series of articles on tracking, production and mixing with Peter Katis! In this episode, the acclaimed producer will focus on the alternative rock single Kids in ’99 from Death Cab for Cutie. Katis plays the original demo, describes how he approached the project and talks about the path to the final mix. He explains why he suggested changing the arrangement of the songs, used certain microphones and preamps, and made different choices to help realize the vision of the recording. In addition to sharing his tracking techniques, Peter elaborates on his original mixing setup, which uses the best of analog and digital capabilities. He talks about his hybrid workflow, which includes ITB processing, analog summing, external equipment processing, tape pass, and the final mix chain in Pro Tools. He also discusses important psychological aspects of his profession – countering artist resistance, keeping a fresh look and more!
