Reggae Vibes Productions REVIEW
When you mix, you have the opportunity to climb in to every nook and cranny of the recording. You start with the bass drum. As you listen, you imagine the original session engineer, place the mic, route the board, EQ, and set the levels. You notice the fidelity and tone of the recording. You make your adjustments. You bring in the snare and hi-hat, set them. Next, add the bass. You start to see the picture, feel the vibe. When the vocal is added you unearth the structure of the song itself, giving praises to the singer for this wicked song. You add the rest of the instruments; piano, guitars, keys, horns, BU vocals, percussion. With each track, you are able to appreciate the pool of talent that the producer has assembled.

The recording engineer is the best witness, to the birth of a song, to history in the making. And in the tracks, you can see the recording engineerís talent, how he organized and adjusted the tracks. With engineers like, Errol Brown, Solgie, Oswald Palmer, Chris Daley, Scientist, Steven Stanley, Bunny Tom Tom, Stephen Stewart, Mad Professor, at the controls you must marvel at their work. The singer brings the blueprint of the song structure, mood, and message. While each musicianís genius and talent are printed right onto the tape. Great musicians like Dwight Pinkney and the rest of the Roots Radics, Sly and Robbie, the Wailers, 809, every musician in this dub collection have crafted their parts to artist perfection.

So as you mix each song you spend hours adjusting and blending each track. You build each track and part to stand alone. The bass and drum can stand alone. The rhythm can stand alone. The melodies can stand alone. The vocals can stand alone. You blend them all together to form the final mix. Itís amazing. Itís alive.

By the time you have finished the vocal mix, all the tracks have left a serious impression on you. Now is the time to create a mix that spotlights the deepest parts of the recordings. You rewind and Dub it. At this point the most amazing thing happens. As you begin to let each section shine through, the song itself calls out to you as you work the board. The bass and drum want to play, soon the piano and rhythm guitar call out Ďlet us controlí. Part by part the song itself becomes a collage of all the distinct elements. Wicked! (Fox)
