Kagi Media, producer of the widely acclaimed mixing course Mix It Like A Record, has posted a FREE streaming web movie on their website hardisklife.com.

Aptly titled "Saturation and the Digital Mix Buss", the movie is based on a chapter from the Mix It Like A Record DVD. In this sample movie, Charles Dye, Grammy-winning engineer, mixer and producer, describes how recording technology has evolved and offers suggestions on how to achieve the sounds we desire when mixing inside the box.

"We wanted to make a contribution to the Online Pro Audio Community," says Jon Kagi, of Kagi Media. "Charles' commitment to helping the online community has always been vast. In 2002, he conceived the break out mixing tutorial Hard Disk Life, introducing the concept of using DAW sessions to teach mixing. And he continues to write countless online editorials as a tireless contributor to pro audio forums. In this spirit, we used footage from Mix It Like A Record to author Saturation and the Digital Mix Buss."

Part 1 of "Saturation and the Digital Mix Buss" is based on the chapter "Distortion of Reality" from the Mix It Like A Record DVD mixing course, Part 1 begins with a historical discussion of how distortion and saturation has changed the sound of recorded music during the transition from analog to digital gear. This leads to a theoretical discussion on the differences between tube, solid-state, analog tape, analog consoles and digital consoles, why and when to use them in the mixing process, and how differently they sound depending on how they are applied in the gain structure of a mix.

Part 2 of "Saturation and the Digital Mix Buss" demonstrates the application of the theory discussed in Part 1 on an actual mix through the use of McDSP's Analog Channel AC1 plug-in. Did you know that the AC1 will sound dramatically different on the master buss when used in Multi-Mono Mode as opposed to Stereo Mode? Watch this FREE streaming movie and you will see and hear the difference on a full-blown Pro Tools HD system in a world-class recording studio.

The 15 minute movie is only a portion of one topic from Mix It Like A Record (runtime 180 minutes), but nonetheless a truly an enlightening piece of media for musicians and engineers of all levels. Combining historical and big picture mixing concepts with hands on demonstrations, the sample movie touches on everything from the evolution of analog recording to making it happen in your DAW.
