Welcome to the 7th chapter of John Christian’s Studio Sessions.
The third subject that John approaches is ‘Landscaping’. He structures this matter within 3 chapters.
In the first chapter about ‘Landscaping’ John will explain how he uses reverb to create space in a mix. Using a clear example he shows us how you can generate more depth by moving things not only from the left to the right but also from the front to the back, as if you’re creating a ‘landscape' of instruments in a certain space. Just adding reverb is not satisfying enough for John and so he shares his personal tricks to create attention for that space without losing the clarity of the instruments.
Landscaping gives you the possibility to make your productions not only wider, but also deeper. You can get really creative with this as you can use these techniques on instruments, vocals, or any other kind of sound you’re using in your production. Which makes it very useful when it comes to creating a big sound.
John Christian goes through Landscaping techniques within chapter #7, #8 and #9. If you have any technical question regarding this Studio Sessions, you can place your comments on www.facebook.com/DJJohnChristian
