    Introduction

    Kenny welcomes you and introduces you to the video tutorials. You'll run through all the tracks and procedures for how you're going to go about mixing the song and what specific methods you'll be using in the tutorial. All tracks in the song are also briefly reviewed, followed by the song being played as a before and after.

  • image description 11:04

    Track Management

    In this video, we break the tracks down into sections and Re-order them, add Color and give them useful names that can be spotted in a much quicker way.

  • image description 16:22

    Rough Mix with Markers & Tempo

    Kenny now shows the benefit of making a quick rough mix to get an idea of what will be needed in the final mixing process. He also adds Markers for each song section and finds the correct song tempo.

  • image description 11:18

    Clean-Up, Clip Gain & Split Mono

    Going further into the pre-mixing process, watch Kenny clean up tracks where music isn't playing, add gain to tracks with low levels, and split stereo and mono tracks into their most useful form.

  • image description 14:18

    Master Buss FX

    In this video, Kenny sets up a master buss track and adds FX and plug-ins that are most useful in this application.

  • image description 16:28

    Basic Vocal Sound

    As we dig in and start the actual mixing process, we start by getting a basic vocal sound that can be built around, in the rest of the mixing flow, as we always consider this most important aspect of the final mix.

  • image description 18:14

    Guitar Amp Sims

    Many of the tracks are just a DI or direct injection signal straight from the guitar, so together you'll sculpt the best guitar tones for this specific track.

  • image description 14:17

    Basic Drum Sound - Ride Mic

    As we move on to the drums, see how to quickly get an overall drum sound without getting lost into every specific instrument in the kit.

  • image description 6:49

    The Drum Overheads

    In this video we begin getting the overall drum sound from our overhead mics. The goal is to make this the sound or centerpiece of your kit and build around it. EQ, compression, reverb are also applied.

  • image description 7:37

    The Room Mics

    In this tutorial you'll dig in to the room mics on the kit and see how big and distant we can actually make the drums sound. In addition, we add EQ and compression to re-shape the drum mics.

  • image description 16:03

    Kick Drum

    As we begin to zero in on the close mics on the kit, we notice how much presence and thump can be applied by adding samples to the kick drum. Not only do we add Samples to enhance the sound but we also find quick ways to make those triggers sample accurate.

  • image description 9:40

    Snare Drum Pt. 1

    In this video we address the Snare drum and see how much crack we can create from it by using EQ and compression.

  • image description 10:26

    Snare Drum Pt. 2

    In this video, Kenny continues with the snare mix and adds a sample to create some extra character in the snare.

  • image description 8:19

    Drum Reverb

    Next we focus on getting the right room treatment for the drums by adding Reverb and making just the right preset for this song.

  • image description 9:38

    The Toms

    In this tutorial we go through and adjust the tom track using EQ and compression.

  • image description 4:57

    The Ride Cymbal

    In this video, Kenny focuses in on the ride cymbal to make sure it too cuts thru the track.

  • image description 9:46

    Drum Buss EQ & Parallel Compression

    In this video we go thru and add a parallel compression buss and then add EQ and compression effects to really create an aggressive drum sound.

  • image description 17:29

    The Bass Sound

    Next we dig into the bass sound. See how to use multiple sub-mixes, VCAs and effects to create that modern Bass Sound.

  • image description 11:59

    The Guitars Pt. 1

    Moving on to the guitars, we now start to blend these into the mix finding the perfect place for them regarding panning and a bit more edgy EQ.

  • image description 16:29

    The Guitars Pt. 2

    Kenny continues working on the guitars utilizing different plug-ins and techniques to get that polishes pro sound.

  • image description 6:45

    Acoustic Guitars

    In this video, Kenny checks out the acoustic guitars in the song which come in a bit later, but do play an important part in creating dynamics in the overall arrangement.

  • image description 7:51

    Lead Vocals & Clip Gain

    Next we come back to the vocals and start to fine tune the level of each phrase in each lyric. This makes things easier down the line, but also makes each word sit at the right volume along with getting the right amount of compression.

  • image description 5:03

    Lead Vocals / EQ & Compression

    As we start to dig in deeper to the vocals, we can now add some final EQ and compression to really make the vocal pop out in the mix.

  • image description 10:13

    Lead Vocals & De-Essing

    As a final step, we can now De-Ess the vocal so that those high frequencies don't jump out in an un-natural way. Also see how to create a tighter more polished vocal treatment.

  • image description 3:55

    Bridge Vocal FX

    Next we check out the bridge vocal which has some similarities to the lead vocal but also needs to be treated in its own special way.

  • image description 4:44

    Background Vox

    In this video, Kenny works on the background vocals and how to find a unique supporting place for them while adding EQ, compression, reverb and delays.

  • image description 14:44

    Dividing Tracks & Panning

    In this tutorial, we go back to separating tracks into useful groups and sub-groups, and finding spatial left and right panning for each section. Automation and dynamics are also used.

  • image description 11:13

    Automation Pt. 1

    As a Final step to tying the whole Mix together, Kenny breaks out automation and really digs in and rides every instrument that needs finessing on a section by section basis.

  • image description 7:46

    Automation Pt. 2

    Kenny finalizes all his automation choices and dials in just the right moves to add movement and excitement to the mix.

  • image description 3:41

    Final Mix

    In this last tutorial, we play the whole song from beginning to end, highlighting the changes in each section. Enjoy!

Pro Tools Signal Flow Explained®

I’m very grateful for what Kenny Gioia has taught me. He has demystified Signal flow in Pro Tools and helped me understand with great depth how to route signals not jus in Pro Tools but I can apply the knowledge/ concepts learned when working from other Daws ???? Having come from Adobe Audition where I never utilized Busses,Sends, real time effects etc; Pro Tools was very daunting to me! But with studying Kenny Gioia’s video tutorials that has changed. It’s now joy working in Pro Tools. Thank you Kenny!

1. When did you start dabbling in music?

I've played an instrument since I was 10. Drums and Trumpet. I'm 40 now. I can play a little bit of any instrument. Master of none. Rock bands most of my life.

2. What training have you had?

I was taught trumpet classically from grade school up until I graduated high school. I went to Five Towns College for engineering and learned that you can't just learn this stuff from school. I did graduate though.

3. When did you get into recording?

I've been recording since I was 15. Two cassette players wired to a Radio Shack mixer. Eventually I got an 8 track reel to reel by Fostex. I've used just about every DAW and I started using them before they even recorded audio. Vision and Performer were just MIDI sequencers at the time. Before they became Studio Vision and Digital Performer. I got studio jobs because I knew computer MIDI and most studios didn't. I eventually moved up to Sound Tools which was two track. Then Pro Tools made a Audio Media III card which let you have 4 inputs. Gradually I moved up from there with Pro Tools D24, Pro Tools Mix to HD.

4. People you have worked with/for?

Marcy Playground
Mandy Moore
LFO
Willa Ford
Lee Ann Womack
Paulina Rubio
Hall & Oates
Bayside
Head Automatica
Cute is What We Aim For
FTSK
and many more...

5. Why are you so good at training people?

Hmmm. My Mom always said "Self Praise Stinks". I think it's because I have no ability to talk like a professional announcer, or plan out my teachings. So I teach as if you were sitting next to me. Pretty much off the cuff. I think that engages people more. We're so used to hearing everything done so properly and planned out with unnecessary explanations and proper wording that the brain will actually ignore most of it. Your brain tunes it out like you're back at your desk at school. But if the teacher grabbed you aside and just explained it to you, I believe you'd get more out of it. That is what I try to do.

Rated 5.0 out of 5 by from LOTS of material! This is, as advertised, a complete mix from raw tracks yo finished product. Kenny works quickly and accurately and cuts ahead on some of the repetitive processes so there is very little wasted time on screen/ Very worthwhile.

Rated 2.0 out of 5 by from A Few Good Ideas There were a few good ideas in this video, but it was wrong--or at least very odd--about several things. For example, why pull up the gain on all your tracks, then group them and pull down all the faders when it hits the 2-bus too hard? That doesn't make sense. Better to gain stage it properly from the beginning, so that you're not blowing out your 2-bus and you can have your faders closer to zero--where fader movements have much finer resolution--when you start. Similarly, putting the multi-band compressor on the 2-bus might make sense if you were using different settings for each of the bands, but using precisely the same settings on each bands renders the multi-band functionality moot.

Rated 2.0 out of 5 by from SO, SO. This may be ok for beginners, however, more experienced engineers will check out early. Also, the song is not my kind of music, so I lost interest because it was hard on my ears; e.g. raspy out of tune vocals, to much distortion, dynamics are one dimensional.

Rated 5.0 out of 5 by from Kenny is so helpful when he creates a video series! His style is unique! Kenny tells you what he does and why. He focuses on the more important things, things I might not have thought of myself. Clear instruction keeps me wanting to soak up every detail.
