The secrets behind remote mixing ‘Ski’ by Young Thug & Gunna with Bainz


Multi-platinum Mixer and Recording Engineer Bainz discloses how he was able to continue mixing ‘Ski’ by Young Thug & Gunna remotely, while away from his studio in LA.


For those in the Atlanta rap scene, Bainz needs no introduction. After graduating as valedictorian from Full Sail University in 2006, he built a name for himself working with artists such as Juice WRLD, Sia, Mac Miller and MGK, to name a few. In 2016, he moved his studios to LA and began working with Young Thug a year later.

When discussing his mix for ‘Ski’ with Sound on Sound Magazine, he explained how he began the mixing process in Atlanta, using LISTENTO in order to stream the audio through his studio set-up in LA, using Teamviewer to control his rig.


“I sent the mixes to my assistant in LA, who would load them into the computer here, and run it through my analogue master chain, with summing from the Neve Satellite 5059, and the signal going through an SSL Fusion master processor and a Neve Portico Master bus. I did a bunch of mixing remotely, using TeamViewer and Audiomovers”

This process allowed him to complete his mix remotely utilising a set-up he knew and was comfortable with using. You can hear the end result for yourself here:
