Mix With The Masters is a series of week-long training seminars for audio engineers. For each seminar, a small number of attendees get to spend a week in a residential studio in the south of France learning from one of the world’s top engineers. Earlier this year, when a seminar with Steve Albini was announced, I decided to apply. I filled out the application form, agonised a bit over what examples of my work I would submit, hit the send button and crossed my fingers. Two weeks later, I got confirmation back that I had been accepted. It was a surreal moment. I was simultaneously delighted and terrified…what if I turned out to be out of my depth? Kate reminded me that the work I’d submitted had got me in, so I shouldn’t worry. I settled into a kind of nervous excitement and started figuring out travel plans for getting to Studios La Fabrique.

Starting point of a kick chain while mixing some drums for Michael Murphy's Diplomat project....
Love what the Waves Scheps 73 does for drums, really thickens things up.
Here's a way of getting some great glitch sounds using Logic's Flex tool to mangle a drum loop in a musical way.
You can hear the example in the picture here, taken from the Diplomat track I'm working on by Murph of Biggles Flys Again: http://tonyfitz.com/downloads/FlexGlitch.mp3
