RPM with Mutli Grammy-winning Mixer Alvin Speights

Mixer Alvin Speights

Worlds of Experience...Brought to Life

The program RPM (Record, Produce, Mix) includes a video series that follows the evolution of a song by Grammy-winning artist Debra Killings. The series of videos also includes "downloadable companion files" which are in the Pro Tools session format.

Alvin and Debra, acting as co-producers, re-cut / re-produce various tracks, bring in new players + arrange and record a live gospel choir. They then combine all the new tracks with Debra's own intricate lead and background vocal arrangements - and Alvin brings it all together in the final mix.

Once you see the whole program + open the sessions on your system - we challenge you to mix your own version.

Also Note: The program RPM is not static, we may modify or add files over time. You can always find out what is currently included on this page.

What You Get:

All Currently Active Videos:

1) Jazz Cafe Mix: The entire process of Alvin Speights evaluating + mixing the original song at Debra Killings home studio. Includes mix setup, orientation and mixing of every track + artist response and discussion.

2) Production Mix: The entire process of Alvin, Debra and other creatives producing + mixing the song at various locations around Atlanta GA - taking it to an entirely new level with the inclusion of re-cut tracks, new tracks and new parts (including full acoustic drum kit, vocals, bass, acoustic guitar, keys and the tracking of a gospel choir co-directed by Debra Killings on location at Alvin's church). Includes detailed video of all new tracking and full re-mixing of the song with all its new elements - effectively seeing Alvin mix it twice in a different way with a different goal.

3) Edits & Automation: Once the song is mixed for the second time it is at the stage where we make a variation that includes hard edits + creative automation - leading the song to a whole new place.

4) Mixing Challange: After Alvin brings it all together in the final mix and you have seen the whole program + opened the full finished mix on your system - we challenge you to mix your own version. You can of course experiment with any session that we include. But if you open the "zeroed out" session you'll see we removed all plugs and automation + set all faders to zero. This gives you the opportunity to "mix from scratch" a session by Debra Killings - a Grammy-winning artist who is behind many huge hit records and she used many of her unique & trademark vocal techniques on this record.  Over 90 vocal tracks + all the rest of the tracks that are part of the production make this an exciting opportunity for any mixer to try.

All Currently Active File Downloads:

1) RPM Audio: Pro Tools sessions and Audio Files including Unmixed, Produced and Zeroed versions.

About Alvin Speights:

Multi Grammy-winning mixer Alvin Speights has mixed hit records for an almost endless register of A-list producers and multi-platinum recording artists. His mix production magic can be heard on releases by India Arie, Outkast, TLC, Madonna, Michael Jackson, Goodie Mob, JT Money, Keith Sweat, Boyz II Men, BeBe Winans, Yolanda Adams, Jagged Edge, Monica and many others.

About Debra Killings:

Grammy-winner Debra Killings is one of the great r&b / pop / gospel artists of our time - having done an impressive amount of work on her own records and as a session artist, producer, arranger and choreographer of vocals.

Debra has performed on over 60 major albums during her career, and while she's carved out a career singing backing vocals on most of TLC's catalogue, she's also contributed heavily to LaFace Records and Rowdy Records stablemates Monica and Outkast.

Her extensive vocal range - from Urban to Gospel to Soul diva - has also seen her in demand further afield, featuring on releases by Aretha Franklin, Madonna, Toni Braxton and Da Brat, amongst many others.

While that's enough of a resume for most people, Debra ups the ante somewhat when you factor in her skill as a bass player, having contributed to the low-end frequencies of records by the likes of Carlos Santana, LL Cool J, Curtis Mayfield, Nelly and Jay-Z. No wonder she's one of R&B's most in-demand session musicians and vocalists.
