"When I received the song, my first thought was that the production was incredible…thanks to Brent Kutzle and The Foreman Brothers! I remember being super excited when I heard it, the record was just undeniably good, you know. This allowed me to truly focus on mixing and sonic enhancement. The idea was: how can we make this a bit grittier in the low end, control the mid-range of the vocals while preserving the energy and make the drum punch bigger and meaner?
"I used a lot of different plugins in the session and a bit of outboard on the mixbus, but I’ll discuss my use of the iZotope plug-ins."
Don't mix without them!
"Neutron and Ozone plug-ins were used quite a bit in this session, and I honestly can’t remember a session in the last two years where I haven’t used an iZotope plug-in."
