Whether you’re composing an absolutely ‘monster’ orchestral cue, a delicate string quartet, or tracking a hard-hitting rock band, by the time you’ve finished recording (or composing) you’re usually left with a bunch of individual tracks that somehow need to be massaged and blended together to achieve a clear, well defined and balanced final track.

But as you listen more closely you notice the kick and bass are masking each other, the guitars are competing with the vocals for the listener’s attention, the string section is fighting with the choir and the percussion bed is not sitting well with just about everything.

There can be a million different decisions on your way to crafting a perfect mix. So where do you start and what path should you follow to make sure you get the result you want?

Let The Fun Begin

This comprehensive course is designed to give you all the tools and knowledge you’ll need to overcome the problems you’ll encounter on your path to mixing satisfaction. It will also help you to develop a ‘process’ or ‘roadmap’ when it comes to getting a great mix and give you confidence with every step you take.
