Multi-Platinum Engineer / Mixer Kenny Gioia is back, this time bringing you an exciting series entitled "Remixing Explained"! Watch Kenny explain what Remixing is, and demonstrate how to Remix a Song containing a Lead Vocal Track from the ground up. You also get the Vocal Track used in the series, so you can follow along and Remix it in real-time with Kenny.

Kenny begins with a thorough Introduction, discussing what Remixes are and then plays the original version of the song you're going to Remix. He also reveals his approach and the Tools you'll be using. Next, Kenny focuses on the Lead Vocal Track, showing you how to Time-Stretch it to fit the Tempo of the New Arrangement. The all-important Drum Tracks are then created, including Loops and Percussion, followed by an Acoustic Guitar part.

Moving on, Kenny gets into the Synth Parts, making Leads, Pads and more. After printing all the Virtual Instrument parts, Kenny works on the Arrangement, creating peaks and valleys for excitement and motion. Before moving onto the Final Mix, Kenny adds some FX, Drum Fills and White Noise to emphasize the Transitions when going to different Sections of the Arrangement.

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.
