So simple, yet so NOT simple!
Carl Bown is known for being an incredibly meticulous engineer who goes to whatever lengths it takes to get it right at the source- spending days and days getting the tone during tracking rather than shrugging and deciding to fix it in the mix.
But his maniacal attention to detail doesn’t stop there… even with tracks as ridiculously clean as these (if you’ve dropped this session in your DAW you know what I’m talking about), there’s always room for improvement – there’s always a way to squeeze that extra 1% out.
Here’s just a small clip of the massive, 10-hour NTM session where Carl dials in the fine details of the lead guitars for “Over It” by Bullet For My Valentine… THIS is what it takes to get the kind of hyper-polished mixes you know Carl’s studio for!
