Adrian Bushby - Double Grammy mix engineer interview

 

Adrian Bushby is a double Grammy award winning British mixer, engineer and producer. Phil English visited Adrian at his private mix studio in London to talk about his working methods and to find out how he goes about taking a recording in to a finished master.

 

Having won his first Grammy back in 2008 for recording the Foo Fighters Adrian went on to win a second in 2011 for Muse’s multi-platinum album �Resistance’. We have attached a discog further down the page but what we were interested in finding out is how Adrian works on a mix, how he goes about a mixing session and how he deals with making decisions.

These day's it's very common for people to ask for endless mix revisions and to have 'stems' supplied. Every producer and engineer has a different view on this so we wanted to ask Adrian about this subject.

 

In addition to these questions we wanted to understand why Adrian withdrew from being a recording engineer to concentrate mainly on mixing. We hope that you enjoy this interview and we'd like to thank Adrian for his time and to Phil English for asking the questions!
