Breaking down the production of Adele’s smash hit Send My Love.

In this video, I run through my recreated version of Adele’s Send My Love track by track, showing you how everything has been layered up, and how such a big sound has been created from comparatively few instruments.

Eagle-eyed (eared?) viewers will notice the audio drop out as I bring the mix up to a commercial level at the end.

Unfortunately it seems like I did too good a job with the recreation, as Youtube’s automatic copyright detection algorithm detected my version as being identical to the original!

If you want to hear how close I got, you can watch the final minute or two of the video in full audio glory below:

 

This is definite proof that you can get 95% of the way to a world-class production with a handful of samples, some dodgy guitar playing and a 10 minute mix. If that doesn’t make you feel better about your own productions, then I don’t know what will!
