just going through my alan moulder playlist and getting seriously overwhelmed. incredible low end, huge variety in genres and mix styles, consistently emphasising the right emotion for each mix. there's an incredible balance of sensibility and emotion against exaggeration, space and hugeness. he's quite a private guy so its hard to find information on him. apologies if this is slightly erratic, I'm just thinking about things off the cuff that I can remember: worked at trident studios at the same time as guys like spike stent/flood/steve osbourne (engineered the smiths sweet and tender hooligan). all incredible producers and engineers in their own right. worked on a load of dance music in the early 90's, particularly learned how to deal with low end in this time. worked on some creation bands (ride/jesus mary chain/my bloody valentine). this lead to getting the mix job on siamese dream by smashing pumpkins. that (presumably) lead to foo fighters/trent reznor/APC/etc. from what I've read, he doesn't use a lot of compression or even EQ on tracks, so I'd imagine he's getting a big part of his balances with automation. EQ on the mix bus though (i think it was a massive passive sometimes GML 8200). commonly uses sample reinforcements on kick and snare, prefers an ambient snare sample to reverb. regarding reverb I've seen him mention valhalla room/IK CSR as well as some of the usual outboard suspects. pretty sure he has some EMT140 plates. likes tracking through neve, then mixing on an SSL. he owns trent reznors old SSL 4k which is his favourite one he's worked on. Uses his E channels on drums usually I think. he's a big fan of EMI TG1 and 2's. not usually a fan of LA2A's. likes mixing on main monitors for a bit but then using a mono aurotone quiet for the majority to really focus on the midrange and balance. what I find most interesting is his philosophy to bands - he usually counts his involvement as co-producer and encourages the band to get involved on the production a lot. he has an awesome space in London ( assault & battery 1) but is pretty happy working anywhere and on any gear. not afraid of using/relying on plugins but uses a lot of outboard and is particularly keen on SSL automation. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qJ_PMvjmC6M some good links: http://www.soundonsound.com/sos/jan13/articles/it-0113.htm http://www.soundonsound.com/sos/may00/articles/alan.htm http://www.miloco.co.uk/milocoresource/record-producer-interviews/flood-and-alan-moulder-producer-interview.php http://www.polymathperspective.com/?p=728 http://repforums.prosoundweb.com/index.php/topic,34538.0.html - this thread is very good. http://www.miloco.co.uk/studios/assault-&-battery-2/studio-photos/ - the second (neve) room in their studio looks incredible too.
