Discover Mixing and Recording Tips with Ken “Pooch” Van Druten

Only published comments... Feb 27 2013, 12:00 AM by Robert Scovill


How can you set your mixes apart from others? This re-occurring question is one I have battled with and know it’s one that you ask yourself every time you sit down behind a console. So of course this was central to my train of thought when I recently sat down with award-winning live sound and recording engineer Ken “Pooch” Van Druten. He has apparently found an answer to this elusive question, which is why he has mixed for some of the biggest names in music, including Linkin Park, Beastie Boys, Eminem, Guns N’ Roses, and Earth, Wind & Fire, who stand out among the crowd.


So what was Pooch’s answer? Tune in to our “Concert Sound with Ken ‘Pooch’ Van Druten” webinar on Wednesday, March 6, at 10 a.m. (PT) / 1 p.m. (ET) to find out and learn how Pooch’s distinct approach to mixing is aligned with a goal we all share—to have a great show night after night.



During the webinar, you will have the chance to:


· Gain insight into Pooch’s systems and workflows

· Learn techniques through actual tour show files

· Get answers to your mixing questions and more


I know I benefited from my chat with Pooch so take time to check out the webinar and join us in the discussion afterward.


Laters everybody,
