The Advanced Mixing Course expands upon the lessons learned in the Basic Mixing Course by adding advanced mixing techniques to the same process. The information learned here will provide the necessary skills to wield control of every step of the mixing process. The Basic Mixing Course is not a prerequisite for this course.
This is the most essential part of this mixing course because all of the other classes will be built off of the information provided here. It is absolutely necessary to teach you how to listen to music and what to listen for.
This class starts with a step by step guide through the entire process and then begins the process of mixing. There are many hidden secrets in this stage of the mixing process that build the foundation for everything else you do.
This is an in depth look at EQ and how it is best applied in a mix. Equalization is an incredibly powerful tool for shaping and refining your mix. It is also the most grossly overused tool. This class will dispel the many myths surrounding EQ and it’s practical application in the mixing process.
Dynamics processing is absolutely the most misunderstood and misused form of processing by novices and professionals alike. It is also the most powerful form of processing when used correctly. This week will explain, in extreme detail, the what, why, when and how of dynamics processing.
This class will focus on the practical application of dynamics processing including the use of advanced dynamic processing techniques. You will learn how to truly harness the power of compression to solidify the imaging and depth of your mix.
This is an in-depth look at effects processing and how it should be applied in the mixing process. Each form of processor is discussed in detail and how it effects the 3D soundstage.
This class will discuss the importance of automation and the concept of focussing the listener’s attention. This is the stage where the song comes together ‘musically’ and is the critical stage for turning your ‘mix’ into a ‘record’.
This is the integration stage for all the other techniques that have been applied in the previous lessons. In this class, you will learn how to finalize all of the individual processing techniques into a finished mix. This will dramatically change your perspective of mixing and is where the power of the 3 Tiered Mixing System comes into full effect.
