My New Microphone's Mixing With Series
Volume 2: Mixing With Faders And Pan Pots!
Craft Great Mixes By Understanding The How And Why Behind Balancing With Level Faders And Panning!
Great Mixes Are Balanced Mixes
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 yet, so many of us struggle to get the results we want from our mixes.
Learning to mix can be overwhelming. There are so many flashy tricks and techniques to know about, and with the massive number of plugins available to us, we easily be led astray.
But all the advanced mixing techniques won't help solve a poorly balanced mix. They're great for polishing the mix and giving it that professional, creative edge. However, the majority of our mixing results will come from obtaining a proper balance between the mix's elements, in both levels and stereo positioning.
And so I wrote Mixing With Faders And Pan Pots.
Firmly grasping the basic fundamentals of balancing is essential for producing great mixes.
The Pareto Principle states that "80% of consequences come from 20% of the causes". Getting the proper balance is that 20% that gets us 80% of our mixing results!
You'll get much better results getting the mix balanced early in the process and working from there.
Great mixes have an appropriate balance between the various mix elements!
Hierarchy Of Elements
Develop a roadmap for the balance of the mix, both in individual tracks and the long-term dynamics of the song.
Gain Staging & Headroom
Understand the importance of gain staging pre- and post-fader, along with the limitations (and potential) of headroom.
Balancing In Context
Learn how tracks interact with others and adjust the balance as necessary to obtain the best balance.
Set up proper monitoring that will benefit the mix's initial balance and carry you through the rest of the mixing process.
See mixing through a new paradigm based on the 3 dimensions we naturally live in (height, width and depth).
Discover how our hearing works and why it's critical that we're able to achieve a mix balance quickly.
And much, much more!
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.
