    Superunknown stands the test of time with some S-Tier rock mixes that sound amazing on any good system. Mixed by Brendan O'Brien and produced with Michael Beinhorn, songs like "Black Hole Sun" and "Fell On Black Days" get just about everything right that a rock mix can get right. There are a ton of lessons to be learned here about relative levels between vocals, kick, snare, tom and guitars in the genre, exactly how to use panning to enhance the stereo filed and a lot more. Big thanks to Soundtoys, Lewitt Audio and Ultimate Support for making this episode possible.
