Grammy Award Winning Engineer, Mick Guzauski is trusted by the world’s top-level talent to consistently deliver the exciting and creativemixes that he has become famous for.
The challenge that comes with being one of the most in-demand mixing engineers in the industry, is that you have to develop a system that allows you to work quickly and efficiently, while still making every mix asincredibleas the last. To rise to the occasion, you have to get the technology out of the way so that you can get right to work and stay creative.
In this puremix.net exclusive, Mick Guzauski walks you through the exact template he uses on every mix to quickly sort tracks, add effects, navigate his Avid S6 console, and create all of the stems the artist may need in the future, in just one pass.
Once you have seen how Mick does it, you can download his personal template perfectly translated for the following DAWs:
Logic Pro X
Avid S6 Console
Avid Non-Linear Reverb

This is not a template, this is just session organisation.

Loved the video but I was left wondering how to deal with replicating any compression made on the mix bus to the individual stem tracks. Mick mentions in passing that these have to be added individually to each stem but how does he do it? It seems to me that if he does any compression on the mix bus the sum of stems can't ever be exactly the same as the mix bus itself. Any ideas on this?

This is great! Between A. Scheps and M. Guzauski, I have made SO many improvements to my own template. I have also really improved my speed by using many of these techniques !!! Being able to kick out all of the stems in one pass is an amazing time saver!!!!

I tried using the template but I am unable to solo individual instruments while mixing. When I click a Solo button, I'm still listening to the entire mix. Does anyone know why? There's some very complicated routing going on here, I can't quite wrap my head around it.

Super useful to be able to print stems at once! Working on a film track with a bunch of incidental music and it is saving me hours and hours of time. BANANAS

Thanks Mick! The VCA spill grouping is clever. Would love to see a follow up with some of your plugin and outboard choices.
