Revered Grammy Award® award winning mix master, producer, and engineer Tony Maserati has an incredible track record and impressive client list (Robin Thicke, Lady Gaga, Beyoncé, Pink, Mariah Carey, Alicia Keys, Keith Urban, Taylor Swift, Jason Mraz, Mary J. Blige), and continues to set the mark for mixing. He’s also a Chandler Limited equipment user.
In a recent interview with SOS [Sound On Sound] magazine, Tony shared insight into the inner workings of his mix of one of 2013’s biggest (and controversial) hits - Robin Thicke’s mega selling and catchy “Blurred Lines.” While it’s well documented that Tony Maserati is a Chandler Limited user, we love learning and sharing how Chandler audio gear plays a role in his amazing productions.
In the October 2013 SOS magazine "Inside Track" segment - “Secrets Of The Mix Engineers” by Paul Tingen, Tony reveals the gear and chain specifics used to mix this platinum selling hit. Specifically as it pertains to Chandler Limited’s role, we found it interesting the Mini Rack Mixer was used for summing the drums; both the Chandler Limited Abbey Road EMI TG1 Limiter [verses] and EMI Zener Limiter [hooks] were used for Robin Thicke’s vocals, and the Chandler Limited EMI TG12345 Curve Bender equalizer was used for the stereo bus. For full details of Tony’s Robin Thicke “Blurred Lines” mix, we encourage you to read the full article available from SOS Magazine’s website, or in stores now.
