    Colin Richardson...

    Holy Fuck! That's all I have to say. I'm going to steal this, just so you know. Actually, I am not going to sleep for weeks now because I'll be clicking the refresh button constantly waiting for more things to steal. Post more!

    andy wallace does this almost all the time

    he also mixes in "ambience" as he calls it, yet he refuses to fully reveal what that means. in an interview he said its something similair to mixing in other sounds that weren't originally in the recording when he recieved it to mix...

    A ran these suggestions over an old guitar track that was poorly tracked. I mean awfully tracked. It still gave me some good spots to clean up and define it. Can't wait till I can try it on some properly tracked stuff. Here's an mp3 of an A/B back and forth between the original and then with the EQ applied. Be warned, the guitar sounds awful! :puke:

    Personally, my favorite albums that Colin has done are Heartwork and one that people don't usually mention, the Burn The Priest remix. I love that album because Steve Austin produced the original, and he is a complete analog nut (tons and tons of modded, extremely warm analog gear). Also, the guitars are definitely clipping from the amps being recorded so loud (making the mics clip), it just sounds so dirty. To have that kind of raw production, and a super-heavy, extremely clear mix by Colin...I just think it sounds truly awesome.

    Couldnt agree more:headbang:
    And man i wish Dave Otero would give out a little more info! i fucking love what he did for Cephalic Carnage's Anomalies:headbang: The way he mixed the Bass with the guitars, they are tuned down to A and it just sounds so damn angry LOVE IT!!! not to mention how natural the drums sound:headbang: and its not over polished, its just one of my favorite productions. And im sure it does help to work with musicians like that. basicaly i would almost amputate an apendage to know exactly how you achieved the guitar and bass tones on that album.

    Out of all the albums listed, "The Fury Of Our Maker's Hand" is the one that jumped out at me. I love that disc. :worship:
