  • Recreating The Beatles Tones with Clay Blair at Boulevard Recording - Warren Huart

    25:10

    Watch / Listen to the finished song here:

    J37 Tape emulator:

    Clay Blair is the head engineer and owner of Boulevard Recording in Hollywood–and a huge Beatles fan.

    Check out Boulevard Recording:



    In this video, Clay set out to capture the tones heard on The Beatles’ Abbey Road; more specifically, those found on “Come Together.” He did so using many of the original instruments, microphones, mic preamps, and miking techniques, like AKG D19s and Chandler REDD.47 valve preamps. The Chandler amps are faithful reproductions of the 47s found in EMI REDD.51 consoles at Abbey Road Studios!

    Read more here:


    Unusual by today’s standards, Clay recreated engineer Geoff Emerick’s drum miking techniques which were used on nearly everything from Sgt. Pepper’s to Abbey Road. The setup consisted of a modest 7 microphones: five AKG D19s, a D20, and a Neumann KM 56 (a 54 was used here). One D19 served as an overhead; one was used on the hi-hat; and the remainder were positioned on the bottom of the toms. The D20 was placed on the kick, and the KM 56 miked the snare–also on the bottom! Who are we to argue with Geoff Emerick?

    While the recording setup varied slightly from song to song on Abbey Road, “Come Together” was recorded on a 4-track tape machine. The 7 drum tracks would have been summed to a single track with a Fairchild on it, and that was that! There weren’t even any room mics used for the drums. Any room tone heard was actually bleed from the guitar, bass, or vocal microphones. The Beatles, like many great bands of the era, tended to record live as a band, with each member baffled off from the other…far from the isolated performances we tend to capture these days, and yet it sounded incredible! Now, we’ve come to associate the sound of bleed with bands like The Beatles and The Rolling Stones, whether we’re consciously aware of it or not.

  • Boulevard Recording Studio Tour with Clay Blair - Produce Like A Pro

    My friend and legendary producer Shelly Yakus recently hit me up and told me: 'Hey Warren, for your next studio tour, you need to check out Clay Blair's studio 'Boulevard Recording'.



    And I'm so glad I did!

    Formerly named 'Producer's Workshop', this studio has a lot of history: Pink Floyd's masterpiece 'The Wall' was overdubbed, mixed and mastered at this studio, Steely Dan tracked their last two records 'Aja' and 'Gaucho' there, they had legendary artists like Ringo Starr, Alice Cooper, Ray Charles, Neil Diamond, Blink 182, as well as all former Beatles members.

    Pink Floyd producer Bob Ezrin described this studio as “acoustically perfect“ and “one of the greatest recording rooms ever built“.

    In this video, Clay tells us how 'The Wall' was recorded and mixed, and gives us a complete tour of the studio, including the live room where they tracked 'The Wall'.

    I have to admit: I felt a bit like a kid in a candy store! Every great vintage hardware unit which plugin designers like to model: Clay has the original one. Plus a huge collection of guitars, pedals, amps, vintage organs (used on Beatles records) and microphones!

    You'll get to see a beautiful studio, get tons of great tips on how to put your favourite plugin emulations to use, and learn a lot about music history, I hope you enjoy it!

    Thank you so much for having us Clay, it was a blast!​​

    Many Thanks,

    Warren

    There is no doubt that The Beatles are the most influential band of all time. They are so important to the development of modern recording! So many techniques we take for granted were first employed with The Beatles, George Martin, Geoff Emerick, the Studio and staff at Abbey Road play such an important part in what we hear today!

    Author and audio engineer Jerry Hammack has devoted 8 years of his life to research every detail of the Beatles career and recoding process. He's collected over 5700 Beatles recordings, interviewed countless engineers, producers and assistant engineers to learn more about band's chemistry and studio workflow.

    I'm thrilled I was able to sit down with Jerry to pick his brain about the early stages of The Beatles career, their recording process and the making of my favourite album 'Let It Be'.

    Have a marvellous time recording and mixing,

    Warren

  • Beatles Mix Challenge - Come Together

    14:23

    The music starts at 2:47

    In this video I attempt to mix the Beatles “Come Together” from Abbey Road using digital emulations of some of the tools they would have had available at the time - the REDD .51 console, TG12345 console, J37 Tape Machine, Fairchild compressor, and RS56 EQ. I also cover some of the quirks of mixes from that era, and show a trick for making the mix sound like a band playing in the same room, even if the tracks were all recorded by the same person.

  • J.J. Blair Interview and Studio Tour - Warren Huart

    1:53:09

    J.J. and I sat down at Fox Force Five–his studio in the Hollywood Hills–to talk a bit about his career, his approach to recording, and of course, the studio itself!

    Read more here:

    Fox Force Five was designed by Bret Thoeny in the mid ’90s–a highly regarded studio architect whose designs include Bob Clearmountain’s Mix This. Funnily enough, when the studio was initially put together, J.J. was somewhat new to the recording world. So, he hired Alan Hershberg as his head engineer to run the studio, who also became his mentor throughout the technical learning process.

    Over the years, J.J. has accumulated an extensive collection of vintage microphones, guitars, and outboard gear, which we thoroughly investigate during the tour. J.J. shared with us how he’s humorously been referred to as “the Joe Bonamassa of microphones” for having such an enormous collection! His affinity for them comes from a wise place, though, as he believes the microphone is the most important component of the signal chain. It is, after all, what’s capturing your sound source!

  • Recording Anytime At All: Get That Beatles Sound in Your Home Studio Pt. 1 Tracking

    14:08

    I get a lot of good comments on my Beatles' covers, so I'm going to show all the steps of my recreation of Anytime At All by The Beatles from the album A Hard Day's Night. I hope this will help some of you. I tried to make it sound as close as possible to the original mono recording.

    I picked this song because
    1) This song has bass, acoustic guitars, piano, electric guitar, and the drums, and no other weird instruments that the beatles sometimes used.
    2) This song features everyone ( John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison, Ringo Starr) very well, I think.
    3) I LOVE this song!!

    I'll try to be as detailed as possible about what I used and how. In this video, I showed all the tracking process, and in the next video (Pt.2), I'm going to show the mixing process.

    Drums: The Loop Loft Matt Chamberlain Drum Loop
    Bass: Rickenbacker 4003 with VOX superbeatle Bass channel. (Slate Digital VMS - Altec 436c)

I want to be able to pull back a little bit of that veil and show you what it is actually like to do all of this for a living. A lot of the people you see on YouTube are doing that YouTube channel full time, which is why they appear perfect and why their videos are perfectly edited and the tracks they play are perfectly mixed.

    Behind all of that though, they are far from perfect! And the same thing is true of professional engineers, producers, and everyone else in this industry. Even great ones like Bob Clearmountain are amazing when people tell him that they think he is one of the greatest mixers in the world! Everyone doubts themselves when they are working on projects.

    Great music is born out of creativity and passion, so cut yourself some slack and just do your absolute best and make sure you are constantly working to learn more and get better at what you love doing! Remember that what you see online may not always be accurate. I do my absolute best to show you an accurate picture of what it is like to do this for a living because I want to you see it and fully understand what this industry is like! I am not focused on presented a perfect image or a perfect mix every time, but just want you to see that I love what I do and that I am showing you the most accurate presentation of my job possible!

  • Did they high-pass in 1979? | FAQ Friday - Warren Huart: Produce Like A Pro

    18:38

    ????25% OFF of our IRs using the code L@NCSTR25 during checkout!
    ➡️I get so many questions about high-passing! There’s so much confusion and misinformation out there.

    We’ve done quite a few videos where we take a kick drum and we high-pass it up to 20Hz and it gets louder!

    People say “Oh, well you don’t hear it” well, you don’t hear it through your studio monitors but you’ll definitely hear it through a PA, and more importantly it will impact your mix.

    Every professional mixer high-passes.

    So did they high-pass in 1979? Yes they did! Not only did they do it, they did it a lot! Going onto tape produced a lot of low end and low-mid build up!
