MIX - 2014 - 08 - The Hidden Talents of Chris Pelonis

This month MIX Editor-in-Chief Tom Kenny talks to Chris Pelonis, an audio-industry veteran and jack-of-all-trades -- engineer, producer, guitarist, speaker maker, studio designer, surfer, photographer -- about his storied career and his driving passion for everything he does, audio and otherwise.

Also, MIX contributing Editor Michael Cooper tackles crisis management in mixing by providing five quick remedies for shabby-sounding tracks.

Then, Producers Joe Chiccarelli and Maxime Le Guil discuss recording Morrissey's latest album, "World Peace Is None of Your Business," at La Fabrique studio in France.

Later, Producer/engineer/multi-instrumentalist Mike Mogis talks about recording Swedish sister duo First Aid Kit's album "Stay Gold."

Finally, the August issue's Regional section covers Canada, where we get news about Revolution Recording, Mechanicland Studios, Greenhouse Studios, and many more. We also talk to two of Canada's most well-respected producers/engineers: Garth "GGGarth" Richardson and Mike "The Fraze" Fraser about their careers, mixing and recording tips, and their work on some of music's most seminal albums.
