How do you mix five sub-bass tracks??? Sara talked about sidechain compression, managing the low end in mixing, exciting drums, mixing modern classical music, dynamic eq, split eq, and transient shaping, and why you should create Youtube videos too!
My guest today is Sara Carter a BBC trained, mixing engineer based in Basingstoke in the UK. She started recording and mixing music in the mid-’90s from a small home studio until eventually landing her dream job working from the famous BBC's Maida Vale Studios and Broadcasting House in London.
Sara has worked with a wide variety of recording artists from Beyoncé and The Black Keys to The Cure and Rod Stewart and has been credited on records by Corrine Bailey Rae and KT Tunstall amongst many others.
She now runs an online mixing business Music Mix Pro in the UK working with unsigned bands from all over the world. And she has a fantastic fast growing Youtube channel called Simply Mixing! Sharing tips and tutorials, writes for the Production Expert blog, and has appeared on many of the Production Expert podcasts. I've also been interviewed on the Working Class Audio podcast and the Recording Studio Rockstars podcast for episode RSR204 where you can learn more about her backstory.
Thanks to my brother from another podcast Matt Boudreau for making our original introduction! You might even hear Saras voice on the intro to Matt’s show.
