MIX WORKSHOP WITH YOAD NEVO
In the workshop, we will explore the techniques that Yoad has built up over thousands of mixes throughout his illustrious career, understanding the important relationships between the different elements in a mix.
We are going to cover the entire mixing process from start to finish.
We will focus on the mix preparation process, getting all the technical issues out of the way so we can focus on being creative and getting a great mix.
“Learning to mix is like learning how to drive a car, once you get the technical stuff out of the way, you can concentrate on where you want to get to.”
In the urban heart of London, sonic craftsman and producer Yoad Nevo is a master at work, producing and mixing music at his state-of-the-art Nevo Sound Studio.
His artistry lies in his ability to give everything he works on a slick finish – be it pop, electronica, rock or anything he feels has ‘that special thing’. Yet he’s always sensitive to the artist’s vision, always offering unique insight on what is right for a song. The essence of Yoad’s sound is a crystalline precision and tightness with prominent synths and a big beat that characterises his sonic wizardry, which has secured his place as one of the most in-demand Producers/Mixers in the industry.
Yoad has been inventing and developing plug-ins for Grammy Award winners Waves, and his registered patents, his book ׳Hit Record – An Inside Track To Music Production׳ and his popular webinars have paved the way for other producers and engineers. With over thirty #1 singles, more than fifty Top 10 albums and over sixty Top 10 singles worldwide, Yoad Nevo has gained the trust and respect of the musicians he is working with.
Nevo Sound is a large-scale, cutting edge music production facility where analogue meets digital, creating the perfect hybrid arena for professional music production. Specialising in high-end production, mixing and mastering, owner Yoad Nevo’s studio has a large client base of high profile international artists.
The studio is acoustically designed for precision and is centred around a custom Neve 5116 console; ATC monitoring; fully loaded digital editing suite; a unique and rare analogue and digital synths collection; electric and acoustic guitars; exotic and rare stringed instruments; and plenty of percussion instruments and sound-making toys.
Dubbed ‘a musician’s playground’, the studio was custom built and designed for Producer/Mixer Yoad Nevo to provide an inspiring environment for musicians and sound engineers.
