Ryan Hewitt’s Tips & Tricks
Universal Audio Artist Ryan Hewitt has been recording since the age of 10 and has worked with some of the biggest names in the industry, including the likes of blink-182, Johnny Cash and Red Hot Chili Peppers.
Universal Audio artist and Grammy award winning recording engineer Ryan Hewitt, has put together a Tips & Tricks video, giving you a first-hand look at the way engineer he has used an arsenal of UAD Powered Plug-Ins while mixing the song, “February Seven” from The Avett Brothers’ latest release, The Carpenter.
Using some of our favourite Universal Audio gear, like the LA-2A & Fairchild 670 Compressors; the Pultec Pro EQs; the EP-34 Tape Echo; the BOSS CE-1 Chorus; and the SPL Transient Designer, Ryan demonstrates invaluable tips for enhancing the sound of an acoustic bass, taming a troublesome piano, and accentuating the main vocal within the chorus.
“I believe that the song informs my methods of recording and mixing, and dictates the sounds we capture in the process. I want to be known as a chameleon, working on music that inspires me to try different palettes in order to paint an appropriate sonic picture for the artist’s song.”
