RPM (Record, Produce, Mix)

RPM (Record, Produce, Mix) is a music engineering, production and mixing documentary where Multi Grammy-winning mixer Alvin Speights and Grammy-winning artist Debra Killings record, produce and mix a song together. The song, written and performed by Debra, is an R&B viber. They 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.

About Alvin Speights: Alvin Speights is a Multi Grammy-winning record producer, engineer and mixer.

About Debra Killings: Grammy winner Debra Killings is one of the great r&b / pop / gospel artists of our time.

Description of 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 Challenge: 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.
