165 tracks?! Oh yeah!!
This month on Nail The Mix we’ve got Kane Churko mixing “Anonymous” by Gemini Syndrome— you know him for his work with bands like Papa Roach, In This Moment and Five Finger Death Punch among many others.
And holy crap, this is a big session!! It’s got well over 150 tracks (and if you think that’s excessive, then watch and find out why it isn’t) including over 60 layers of vocals alone.
Working with such a big session has its own challenge, and it’s worth signing up for this month just to learn how to deal with so many tracks (and this month includes a mini-lesson specifically on how to manage the massive session).
But more than that, it’s a master class in arrangement – you’ll see exactly why every single track in the session serves a very specific purpose – this isn’t size for size’s sake.
The huge vocal stacks are key to that huge, radio rock sound; the synths are subtle but add tons of size and depth, and the samples and other elements give it a slightly electronic touch without ever losing sight of the fact that it’s a rock song…
Kane is truly one of the very best in the business when it comes to production and arrangement, and after watching this you’ll see why we say that!
