Have you ever wanted to pick apart the amazing productions of Paramore? Want to know the secrets to the incredible guitar tones, solos, and drums?
- Are you blown away by the thick rhythm guitars?
- Ever wonder how they glued the bass and guitars together so well?
- Do you want to pick apart the drum sounds used and learn to mix them to perfection?
- Have you tried referencing to Paramore before, always feeling let down when you hear your own mix?
- Is it even possible to get those incredible sounds in your home studio?
One of the best sounding records out there in the rock genre is Paramore’s Riot. We all love the amazing guitar tones, hard hitting drums, and slick production.
But just because you love the sounds doesn’t mean you know exactly how to get them on your session.
As a producer, there’s always value in learning the tones, styles, and secrets that were used to create incredible hit recordings. That’s why we’ve painstakingly recreated a track in the style of this hit from scratch – you’ll be amazed at what you find.
