Description

Welcome to the COMPLETE Mixing Masterclass

This class is for anyone who has made or recorded music and wondered why their tracks don't sound like the tracks they hear on the radio, Spotify, SoundCloud, or anywhere else. This is the missing link in your production workflow.

In this class we start with the very basics of mixing, and work all the way up to finishing great tracks. I walk you through every step of the process, and explain my logic behind every decision I make. I'll even walk you through a complete mix from beginning to end.

The goal of this class is for you to learn how to take your tracks from good to great.


DAWs:
In this class I'll be using Ableton Live, but if you are not a Live user - that is totally ok! I've gone to great lengths to make sure this class is useful to everyone, no matter which audio platform they are working with. So if you are a Logic user, FL Studio user, Cubase user, Bitwig user, or anything else - it will all work. You will be able to do all of the techniques that I walk you through in any audio application.


Genre:
I'm best known for working with electronic music, but I've designed this course to be as inclusive as possible when it comes to genre. We will talk about mixing techniques for all instruments, sounds, and styles. All genres are welcome here!
