Interview: Recording Legend Joe Chiccarelli on Tracking vs Mixing


Justin Colletti, from our partners at Sonic Scoop, sits down with recording legend Joe Chiccarelli (The White Stripes, U2, Elton John, Beck) in the first part of a three-part interview. In the first installment, Chiccarelli shares some of his approaching to tracking and mixing, including when he knows to let someone else take over with fresh ears and mix an album he’s recorded. They delve into how recording and production create an emotional response to the music, and how Chiccarelli goes about achieving that goal.
