Snake Newton on the challenges of mixing John Taylor’s bass on tour with Duran Duran. How do you keep the bass sitting where it needs to with this band while not losing the impact of the snare and not ending up with a muddy mix? Some thoughts on getting that done. Snake alludes to the rig he was using–the Adamson E15–as part of how he avoided sonic compromises. More on the rig in the next installment. 

and just for grins some intro stuff that we would have started with but, well, we didn’t feel like it. There ya go…
