A Day with Adrian Sherwood in On-U Studios - Part 2 | Soulsound

Getting to the nitty gritty of the mix process, Adrian goes through the channels and explains his work flow – combining Protools and live analogue dubs – and demonstrates comprehensively how he uses live dubs and effects to get the sound he wants. Adrian shares his thoughts on automation – that whilst it has its uses, the final mix is really something that he does live. Plenty of gear porn for the connoisseur! Unlike most people, Adrian doesn’t mark up the desk, as he feels strongly that he should learn the tune and how it is distributed across the desk in order to interact instinctively and play it like an instrument. Adrian also discusses how his career developed and the philosophy behind how he works – how he creates his own sound by sticking to the gear he loves, then twisting and mangling it to keep it fresh. http://www.adriansherwood.com/
