Craft Great Mixes By Knowing What To Do, When To Do It, And (Most Importantly) Why To Do It!
To my fellow mixers, musicians and music producers,
It's true that there's never been a better time to learn how music production and mixing.
Gear's affordable and accessible, and information is abundant.
But I know from experience that a lot of the information out there is disjointed, contradictory or even incorrect.
If you're interested in learning the ins and outs of mixing, a dedicated, in-depth source is much better than hours spent consuming tidbits, tips and tricks.
And so I wrote the Mixing With Series ebooks.
I put together a 9-volume series of PDF eBooks to show you the most important mixing processes, how to use them, and when to use them.
These are my frameworks for crafting mixes in an easy-to-follow, step-by-step manner. I've developed them over more than a decade, through trial and error, lengthy study sessions, formal education, and my professional career.
Understanding the processes that go into a great mix is the key to success. This includes how they work and how we should (or shouldn't) use them. These PDFs go deep into the how and why to set you up for success!
These ebooks cover everything you need to know about the most important processes in mixing. I wish I had had something like this when I started out, and I'm glad to offer it to you today!
Knowing how to use the 'tools of the trade' is essential for our success in whatever we choose to pursue. Mixing is no different!
- Prepare the mix session properly for ideal workflow and success in the mix
- Balance your tracks to give the listener a sense of what's important
- EQ the tracks to make them all work together in their own dedicated space
- Compress only the tracks that need it to maintain consistency, thicken sounds and create movement
- Find out how saturation and distortion will take your mixes to the next level
- Use delay and reverb to their fullest while creating a realistic sense of depth to put your mixes in 3D space
- Start using automating to its fullest potential to take static mixes to professional level
- Ensure proper mix translation so it sounds great across playback systems and finalize it for mastering
A secret of world-class mixing engineers is that the songs they're tasked with mixing typically sound amazing
In Volume 1: Preparing The Mix, you'll unlock the full potential of your mixing efforts by setting yourself up for success before you even reach for a fader, pan pot or insert.
The truth is that the majority of mixing has to do with proper balance in the relative levels and stereo positions of the mix's tracks.
In Volume 2: Mixing With Faders And Pan Pots, you'll balance an excellent initial "rough mix" quickly and fine-tune the level and stereo balance throughout the mixing process to craft a superb final mix.
Equalization is an essential mixing tool that helps balance the mix by adjusting frequency-dependent levels.
In Volume 3: Mixing With Equalization, you'll use a variety of different EQ types to carve the frequency balance of the mix and ensure every element works together.
Compression is another essential mixing tool, this time helping balance the mix by automatically adjusting levels of the mix's tracks.
In Volume 4: Mixing With Compression, you'll use a variety of different compressor types and techniques to perfect the balance between elements and get the sound you want from the mix.
Saturation (and distortion) is often skipped over when learning about mixing, making it somewhat of a secret weapon for achieving professional-sounding mixes.
In Volume 5: Mixing With Saturation, you'll use a variety of different saturation types to add colour and interest to the mix elements, all while balancing the tracks for top-level results.
Delay is one of the two essential time-based effects for adding a sense of dimensionality to a mix.
In Volume 6: Mixing With Delay, you'll use a variety of different delay types for special effects and, more importantly, to add width, height and depth to the mix.
Reverb is the other essential time-based effect for adding dimensionality to a mix.
In Volume 7: Mixing With Reverb, you'll use a variety of different reverb type to add width, height and depth to the mix and for special effects.
Automation is a super-powerful mixing tool that separates an amateur, static mix from a professional, dynamic one.
In Volume 8: Mixing With Automation, you'll use the power of automation to automatically adjust a wide variety of parameters throughout the length of song in order to achieve a dynamic and interesting final mix.
Is a mix ever really done? It's critical that we know, as mixing engineers, when to call a mix finished and how to finalize it for mastering.
In Volume 9: Finalizing The Mix, you'll reach the full potential of your mix with final touches and proper referencing before exporting it for mastering.
