For this particular mix, Fab chose to mix this outside of the box, on his Neve 54 series console, using his favorite outboard gear to craft the tracks and create a cohesive and style appropriate mix.
In this one-hour pureMix.net exclusive, see how Fab:
Deals withbleed from other instruments in the room
Softens “clanky” transients in the piano to create a more style appropriate sound
Uses transformers on his stereo bus to shape the tone of the mix
Adds definition while maintaining a fat tone on an upright bass using high pass filtering and EQ
Adds detail to the fingers of the stand-up bass without adding harshness using a Chandler LTD-1
Does subtle tone shaping on the drum kit and controls excessive transients using a Chandler TG1 Limiter
Adds space using analog reverbs like an EMT 140 and AKG BX10

Excellent, love the extensive A/B comparisons, and as always the extensive explanations! I really like that practice files come with it, would be great to have this on more videos. It would be great to have a few more jazz videos, for example one with a singer and some horns.

Outstanding (as usual...)! Happy to have such valuable inputs on this kind of production! Thanks!

I find it so difficult to mix music recorded live, because of the bleed. It was really helpful to watch you make careful and subtle moves 'to enhance what is already there," as you say. (Really nice playing on this track, too. Compliments to the players!)
