What happens when you turn off the screen, unplug the keyboard, and then power up the console and warm up the outboard gear? Is it better? The same? Time to find out...
This 1.5 hour tutorial features the song "Jealousy" by Brandi Thompson and the Alexanders, tracked by Grammy winner Mick Guzauski and produced by Fab Dupont.
See how Fab Dupont:
Gives a complete breakdown of the Neve 33 series console in the Dangerous Room at Flux Studios NYC
Unplugs the keyboard and mouse to do a 100% analog mix
Lays out the tracks on the console and explains his workflow and every choice he makes in real-time
Explains the importance of gain staging while patching in an EMT 140 plate reverb
Sets up a parallel drum bus with a DBX 160VU
Sets up a Neve 33609 compressor and a Neumann PEV EQ across the 2bus
Dials in the console's built-in 3314 compressors for parallel compression on the entire mix
Patches in an AKG BX10 spring reverb from the fabulous room to the dangerous room on the snare drum
Patches in a Roland RE-201 for a mono delay on the vocal
Does his final fader rides by hand with no automation while printing the final mix
This is your chance to sit next to Fab Dupont in the Dangerous Room at Flux Studios NYC and see how he mixes Jealousy entirely out of the box from scratch.
After you've seen how Fab does it, download the multitrack and practice what you've learned. In or out of the box!

Such an invaluable tutorial. Once again, Fab nails the detail and explains exactly what he's doing and why.

Beautiful song, playing and SINGING!
Curious Fab, what kind of decay is on your EMT?

Man he goes lighting fast when setting up SUM sent to PRINT track in order to A/B raw tracks and producers mix, can anyone explain how exactly this works, I see his routing, but not adding up I’m my mind as to how to is achieving what it’s achieving.

Fab always brings the good. This inspired me to make a Neve template in Pro Tools.

Excellent!!! Sounds great man!!! Good to see this also. Have to agree with peterkcraft about the ITB/OTB comparison. As for A.S. and all the "now ITB" mixers, don't forget: two words: convenience and economics . . . we live in a "good enough" era where the cost of quality can no longer be justified.

It just can't be that easy!)

I REALLY want to prefer the sound of ITB mixes because it would make life (particularly recalls) so much easier, but for me the sound of this mix vs the ITB mix isn't remotely close. The same goes for Andrew's ITB/OTB of Ziggy Marley. I know Andrew Scheps is an ITB guy now, but the OTB mix is just so much bigger/wider/deeper. My opinion anyway..

For those asking about the ITB version, it is linked in the video description, last sentence. Here's the link: https://www.puremix.net/video/fab-dupont-mixing-with-pro-tools.html

Amazing video (and amazing sounding mix) but, where is the comparison with the ITB version you talked about in the introduction ?
wfrank •Saturday, February 12, 2022
Great watching you go through the whole process here. Thanks!
Would be cool to see you doing the same just ITB and then compare to see the things that differ ...

Awesome tutorial, thank you!
Do you now write down/photograph all the hardware settings/fader positions for recall?
Thanks again, PureMix rules.
