On Wednesday, June 6th, 1962, four young musicians entered Studio 2 of EMI Recording Studios, known today as Abbey Road, for the first time. Little did they know that those sessions would forever change the history of recorded music and pop culture.
For the next eight years, Abbey Road became The Beatles' creative home, bringing the world some of its most cherished music to date. Over 11 albums, they would collaborate with a handful of engineers and producers, with the goal of changing the sound every time they entered the room.
In this Puremix exclusive, engineer/producer Fab Dupont heads to Abbey Road with one of the most iconic engineers in music history, Ken Scott, to learn the history of The Beatles recording techniques.
Joining Fab and Ken are "The Fab Faux." Revered as one of the most accurate tribute bands of The Beatles music, they are the perfect talent to call upon to recreate the sound of the four different eras. Their knowledge of the music, equipment, and history is second to none.
For the music, The Fab Faux have penned multiple songs, true to each era, to perform as a base for Ken to recreate the sound using the same microphones, the same consoles, and the same room that The Beatles called home for so many years.
Join Ken, Fab, and The Fab Faux as they journey back to discover and pass on the recording techniques that changed it all.

Imagine working this magic with only the REDD desk, a Fairchild and an Altec. I COME from this era - the lads were just a bit older - I was born in 1948, I saw them live at Olympia Stadium in Detroit (I think it was 35 - 40 minute set. We screamed , John told us to shut up! And then gave a us a cheeky grin. (it did not help shutting us up _ Beatlemania was very real). I first SAW the lads on Ed Sullivan (screamed at the TV in black and white (terrible little speaker) ) - which made my nasty brothers laugh at me! I bought my first Beatles album with baby sitting money - 25 cents an hour - (Meet the Beatles), played on my AWFUL record player! and REALLY heard them (more or less) on a Hard Days Night at the Dearborn theater (screamed some more - you had to be there). Our high school had an Altec limiter and I was a young and burgeoning sound engineer but didn't know it yet - I was already fascinated!. I have almost all of the guitars used with the exception of the Ric 12 - even though cantankerous - I still want one. This series shows what can be done with talent and dedication, both in the booth and on the floor. AND we owe it to PureMix!! (Thank you Fab!) Do we really need 50 plugins on Pro Tools? Do we really? Less can be more - a lot more. I would LOVE to have the wav files for this session so I can attempt my own mix. I attempt to use as LITTLE as possible with my own mixes, and as analog a signal chain as possible, and ONLY add as necessary when necessary. Listen to this series multiple times - take notes (on paper of course) - learn the lessons that less really IS more. THANK you Ken and Fab and everyone! It not only takes me back BUT its lessons are rich indeed. Bless you all - "I've got blistah's on my fingah's!" --- BEATLES forever! - and thanks again Fab! Still love you John!

Simply amazing. Thank you for do this.
Will the tracks ever be available for pure-mixers to mix?

Another great series so well done. Sound-wise like a Time Machine, I can remember when the Beatles first came out better than I can remember what I did yesterday, and this brings it back with such clarity. Seeing it from this perspective rather than a teenager obsessing over every note they played and sang, I find it even more amazing that these people happened to meet and stumble into that particular space, (which (imo) is an enormous part of that sound equation to begin with), using such basic equipment and just whatever they had at hand to collectively create something that changed the lives of millions of people in such a profound way. Really appreciate you guys putting this together, as I can sit here and imagine what Fab must feel like sitting in that chair. For myself I would be floating slightly above it! Thank you all so much, really enjoying this classic series :)

Too good for words! Excellent videos, amazing insight! Keep doing what you're doing!

Honestly these videos are absolutely fantastic, but please fix your gate for the lav mics! It is very distracting that it is set to a seemingly infinite ratio. I get having the gate there, but maybe set a floor! Very unnerving when all the room noise suddenly disappears just as the last word is said, especially down in the live room!
