Podcast 507 – Scoring Mixer Jason LaRocca, Vinyl Record Backlog, And Hit Songs That Almost Didn’t Make The Album

Jason LaRocca 507

My guest this week is Grammy-nominated producer-engineer-scoring mixer Jason LaRocca, who has recorded and mixed music for major motion pictures, games and television.

Known for mixing the score of “The Lord of The Rings: Rings of Power” series, Marvel’s “Morbius” and more, Jason recently mixed the Grammy-nominated albums “Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street” and the “God of War: Ragnarok” soundtrack. He has also recorded and mixed for such top recording artists as Jay-Z, CeeLo Green, Fiona Apple, Schoolboy Q and Serj Tankian, of System of a Down.

Jason was guest back on podcast #441 a couple of years ago, but I thought I’d have him back to give us an update about what’s going on in television, gaming and film mixing.

During the interview we spoke about the enormous number of tracks required to record Sweeny Todd, the differences between mixing a Broadway record and a game soundtrack, whether automation or clip gain is faster, his approach to immersive mixing, mixing trends in film and TV, and much more.

I spoke with Jason from his studio in Los Angeles. 

On the intro I looked at why the vinyl record backlog has decreased, and hit songs that almost didn’t make the album.
