In 2015, the amazing Andrew Scheps opened the multitrack for Will Knox’s "Lifeboats" and took us all the way from hearing the song for the first time to a completed mix with his signature sound imprinted upon it. In addition to a fantastic sounding mix, Andrew delivers some of his most detailed explanations of his famous techniques to date.

In this Episode 4 of the Lifeboats Series, Andrew:

Shows exactly how he sets up every mixing session to look familiar, including his template, groups, VCA’s, naming conventions, FX, busing and more.
Gives an in-depth explanation of his famous rear bus technique
Explains how he uses lo-fi to create unique distortion effects
Breaks down his parallel processes such as the “Drums Dirt” bus
Explains how he gets to know the song
Defines “Your Job As The Mixing Engineer” and more...

Wasn't this released a while ago already? Or is this an updated version or something?

Good question. Description of content looks very similar to previous courses with this guy.

You're probably thinking of the Mick Guzauski one. They both mixed the same song for comparison purposes.

as did CLA and Fab.

Ooh, thank you. I still don't know much about these "mixing personalities" =)

He's the worst mixer of the 4.

Mick Guzauski's attempt sounded pretty poor to me (next to CLA and I'm not a big CLA fan). Mick seem to jab at the faders without really doing anything and it ended up sounding like a rough mix vs the polished 'big' song CLA delievered. I'll watch Scheps today, but I like him and I doubt his mix would sound as lackluster as fat-boy-fat's effort.

Here is my list:
(obviusly there's a lot of taste & hi-fi's reasons)
1 - Mick Guzauski
2 - Fab Dupont
3 - CLA
4 - Andrew Scheps

Fair enough, not seen fabs yet (or scheps). I just wish Mick had taken that awful out of tune synth out of the mix or turned it way down like CLA did, I find it grating AF.

OK I'm sure this is interesting to nobody but me but I've since watched scheps and...

I noticed

. His vocal mix was pretty bad/annoying and sounded unmixed.
.The overall mix didn't go anywhere exciting (the song is pretty boring though)
.It felt a little too dry and the vocal stood out and didn't sound pleasing

Other than that I still think his base music mix was more solid than Micks (mick's sounds really unpolished to me... very very slack). Mick's mix lacked cohesion and a glued together feel, that doesn't surprise me based on what he did (or didn't do) to it. I think he was more into his S6 (D-command is better btw ;) ) than the song.

But with Mick:

. His vocal mix was a bit too wet/delay was too prominent
.His drums were TOO LOUD
.His mix was a bit muddy and lacking punch
.He had the synth (out of tune one) too loud

So I need to go back and check CLA again but I'm pretty certain he still nailed it best, had some size, power, width, magic combining the best of scheps and mick without the drawbacks. I don't usually like CLA's mixes that much so I'm surprised but I think as it's quite a dull song (sorry to the artist) I think CLA's push was needed to make something decent out of it.

Not seen Fabs not sure if it's on here.

With Scheps I think he's a bit lazy, he didn't go the extra mile like CLA to tidy up timings, tunings, or dress it up much. Mick didn't either. Scheps I think stays to constrained by his template and sometimes the song needs something different, he admits he's lazy and I think it shows in that mix.

To me CLA's is the only one that 'sounds like a record', if I'd mixed the other two I'd be unhappy and think I wasn't done yet. They still sound like unfinished/boring mixes to me! It has nothing to do with hardware vs software either, just their tastes I guess. Personally I didn't love any of the mixes and would mix it myself better (imo) itb + hybrid outboard ;) and maybe will give it a shot with the stems included.

Wish they had done this with a better song with more going on.

1. CLA (most record like/more exciting but a bit glossy/fake)
2. Scheps (most solid/organic but slightly boring)
3. Mick (to me it sounds totally not mixed, loose and non-record like)

Agree ! With one remark: CLA version has a little too much reverb for my taste.
  Member 9.12.2013 35
In my opinion all of them has a "self-centred" approach, they should start from the song, it's not really a mix, it's more a demonstration, no one handled to capture the song.
