The Immersive Mixing Course Level I is designed to teach you how to create immersive sounding mixes in stereo speakers and headphones. The techniques in this course are not reliant on binaural and immersive technologies like Dolby Atmos which will be covered in levels II & III.
This class provides historical context of the evolution of surround and immersive technologies and how those principles can be integrated into a simple stereo workflow.
This class is dedicated to introducing the compliment of tools that will be used to create immersive sounding mixes.
The practical application of techniques to create immersive sound characteristics requires a deeper understanding of the sound field itself and how to place instruments and effects into those spaces.
Creating an immersive sound requires that the elements within that sound field are defined in such a way that the sense of space is clearly recognizable. The class will cover the EQ techniques and principles necessary to create those effects.
Controlling dynamic movement within the sound field is a powerful way to expand the sense of an immersive space. The class will cover the compression techniques and principles necessary to acheive those effects.
Although the majority of immersive sound field processing is applied to effects, there are many times where it is preferred to have the processing on the audio source. This class will teach you how to achieve immersive effects while maintaining mono compatibility.
Early Reflections are the easiest and most transparent way of creating an immersive sound field. This class teaches you how to create and utilize these immersive ER spaces for placing sounds and effects in specific locations
Early Reflections define the immersive sound field and reverb is what fills that space. This class will teach you how manage different reverb types to add body and texture to the immersive sound field.
Modulation effects are an amazing cheat code for creating 3D effects on dry sounds without losing mono compatibility. It is also a great tool for adding texture to reverb and early reflections.
This class will focus on adding clarity, detail and texture to the immersive sound field. These techniques are an incredibly powerful way to bring the immersive sound field to life.
Mix Bus Processing is the final opportunity to detail the mix . Here, using mid-side processing techniques and careful imaging adjustments can bring the immersive elements of the mix into final focus.
This Class will discuss Atmos integration for headphone specific mixes. This will be the primary subject matter of the Immersive Mixing Course Level II.
