Carrie Underwood – Before He Cheats

A short clip from another one of Andy Scarth’s epic mixing missions for Apple Festival. Huge track counts (300 channels at 96K), tight deadlines (24 hour turnaround) and a big show made these mixes both fun and terrifying all at the same time.

This was a super tricky mix, a huge band playing very complex arrangements and multiple acoustic instruments on a very loud stage made life interesting! Carrie Underwood’s performance was exceptional, note perfect throughout, what a pro.

This is a track from a live video EP mixed by Ben at Abbey Road during Apple Festival 2015.
