Go-to mixer and engineer for Young Thug and Gunna breaks down his process in the final 10% of getting a mix ready for mastering.
It’s a perennial problem: How do you know when your mix is done? We caught up with Bainz, in his room at Crosby Recording Studios to discover his answer to this question.
“When I’m done at the end, and I think I’m at a good place, I’ll still go through and listen to the song. I’ll make minor vocal automations within a dB up and down, I’ll add small minute throws here and there. Small finishing things that like take that one step forward.”
Once the mix is sounding good in his room, he then begins to test the mix across multiple devices. This is where LISTENTO enters the picture.
