Re-recording Mixer Joe Barnett Relies on Powerful Plug-In
For 5.1, 7.1 and Atmos Projects
LOS ANGELES, AUGUST 21, 2019 – For the
past 30 years, award-winning Re-recording Mixer Joe Barnett has worked on a
wide variety of high-profile projects including American History X, Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me, Crazy Heart,
When in Rome, Chronicle, 2 Guns, Luke Cage, Daredevil and The OA. Among Barnett’s most recent credits is the Netflix hit Iron
Fist, for which he relied on NUGEN
Audio’s Halo Upmix for his surround sound mix.
NUGEN Audio is integrated into every one
of Barnett’s surround projects. “I love NUGEN’s Halo Upmix and use it every chance
I get,” he says. “Often, my music elements are stereo and, since all our shows
and movies are in either 5.1, 7.1 or Atmos, they require some method of
spreading. I have tried most of the alternatives, and in my opinion, nothing
beats Halo Upmix. Not only does it sound great, it is easy to use, has lots of
helpful presets, has super low latency and its stereo compatibility is
seemingly perfect. Halo Upmix doesn’t disappoint, ever. I also use NUGEN’s ISL2
limiter for LKFS adherence.”
In addition to his NUGEN plug-ins, Barnett’s “in the box” on-stage
setup includes an Avid Pro Tools S6 control surface; with a range of plug-ins
including FabFilter for EQ and dynamics, Audio Ease Indoor and Altiverb convolution reverb plug-ins, Exponential Audio
PhoenixVerb and Avid ReVibe for reverb, iZotope RX7 audio correction software
and Audio Ease’s Speakerphone playback solution.
Barnett likes to keep his mixes simple
and to the point. “I try not to overcomplicate both my setup and mixing style,”
he says. “The most important tool we have is our ears. A simple compressor, EQ
and light de-essing will get you most of the way home. Too much processing just
adds layers between the mixer and the tracks, which means constant attention
and a lot more work if something goes astray. I strive to deliver clean,
balanced, well-articulated mixes that support the artistic vision of the
director or creative lead while being budget and time conscious. Our job is a
juggling act between servicing the story, the tracks and, most critically, the client.
NUGEN gives me the confidence to know I will produce an
amazing result every time.”
