The Track: Chopstick & Johnjon on creating Pining Moon

Check this In The Studio video from Future Music magazine.

Two interesting lessons from the way these producers work:

  • They use Ableton Live sessions to get the main basic core idea of the song right.
    • They try out various combinations and doing all recordings in the live sessions.
    • When it works in there and you feel the mood, vibe, groove, potential of the song, then they start to fully arrange the track.
  • There view on how a mix should be before going to the Mastering Stage (see last 5 minutes of the song):
    • The mix should be warm but not too warm. Then mastering can make it fully hot.
    • Leave 3db headroom in the mix for mastering to play with.
