Dave Muddiman with Buford Jones Meyer Sound - Mixing Workshop
Washington DC February 2010 and Swarthmore College PA November 2010

Buford mixed live tours of Led Zeppelin, Rolling Stones, Bowie, Lynnard Skynard, Faith Hill, and many many others most notably Pink Floyd.

He shared many simple ideas that turn out to be very important when making a show sound it's very best.

1 Keep your hands on the mix, you can make the show better if you use the hands wisely.
2 Do not over compress, or have compressors operating too fast.
3 Do not over gate, or have a gates operating too fast.
4 A modest stereo mix will sound more interesting than a mono, or hard panned mix.
5 Sub-woofers will benefit from a separate "sub-Stem" mix with no vocals, snare, etc going to subs.

The next show after the workshop was amazing. Buford's ideas definitely made a dramatic improvement.
