Modern Music Mixing with System 5 and Pro Tools

Avid Blogs Pro Mixing (video)

“Some people will argue that vinyl sounds better than a CD.

But that’s subjective… If you want to hear hiss and lack of high end (or warmth) – that’s your preference. But at the end of the day, if you start with full pristine frequency response of digital, you can go wherever you want from there. And that’s the beauty of it… Give me all of the quality and all of the frequencies.

I’ll decide what I want to distort, I’ll decide what I want to pull in and pull out. And ultimately I will achieve that sound of 2” tape if I so choose and that’s where I need to take this record. You can get there almost in a better way… With all the quality and flexibility you get with Pro Tools (and S5), you can take your mixes to other places and you have infinite possibilities. You can always go back to that world of distortion if you so choose.

That’s to me is the most important thing. That’s why I will always stand by mixing in a digital environment. Sure there’s other consoles – but I’m in a system where Pro Tools is talking to my console and vice versa… That alone gives me an advantage over everyone else out there that is just mixing with another console (without an S5) or just with Pro Tools. Those two things stacked together are like ‘I’ve got everything now’. The shear flexibility of the S5 is one of my favorite things… –
