Creating the Sound of 70s Philadelphia in your own studio, today

Working from reference tracks by Teddy Pendergrass and Marvin Gaye, Dylan Wissing and Cooper Anderson dial in the famous tight, dry, smooth sound of a late 70s Philadelphia Soul session. Dylan gives a quick overview of the recording session, then Cooper mixes the raw drums into a finished track.

Included with this course are free unmixed drum stems so you can create your own mixes.
