Vanda Essay, Shadow of the Colossus & DOOM soundtracks, and a drum mixing education
Packed episode with the guys this time, touching on a bunch of stuff in quick succession.
What we've been listening to
8 Bit Wonderland
We look at some of the computer game soundtracks we love, with the featured soundtracks this time being the 2016 DOOM soundtrack by Mike Gordan, and the Shadow of the Colossus soundtrack by Kow Otani.
Plus, Zelda gets more than a quick mention, by way of Half Life (you'll see how).
Chris's drum mixing education
Long chunk of the episode is dedicated to drum mixing tips, from minimising mic bleed, to determining the space you record in, to how samples are created, to how music is a constant fight in balancing frequencies. Really interesting deep dive into an area of expertise that is not talked about enough (and a big shout out to Chance Bair of HEAVY HEAVY for bringing this one up).
