The Finest Tool in the Shed: How Will Putney Mixed a Number One Record Entirely on Sennheiser Open-Aire Headphones
'Chasing Ghosts' by Australia's The Amity Affliction Raced to Number One on Australian Charts Before Putney Was Able to Liste
Old Lyme, Conn., - December 3, 2012 ? Underground metal band The Amity Affliction has officially made a name for itself in its native Australia, where the band's third album, Chasing Ghosts, was released on September 7th of this year and subsequently raced up the charts to capture the number one position. NJ-based producer Will Putney, who was recruited by the band to mix the album in a time crunch, mixed and mastered the entire album on a pair of Sennheiser HD 600 Open-Aire headphones in his bedroom. By the time he was able to listen to the album on a pair of monitors in a traditional studio, the album had already been pressed and was on its way to reaching number one on the Aria Charts in Australia.
