Are you just getting into mixing music? If so, you have to take a look at this Mix School 101 by our very own Russ Hughes. Russ has produced this series to help those new to mixing, or those who aren’t satisfied with their mixes by starting right at the beginning, looking at what mixing is, and what makes a good mix. Then Russ performs a full, in-depth “over the shoulder” mixing session, explaining it all as he goes.
Russ starts with a detailed introduction to mixing, shows you “shapes” of mixes, the anatomy of a mix and mix “house keeping” to better manage and increase your mixing workflow. Next Russ gets into using groups and editing your tracks to make them mix ready. Russ then focuses on main vocals and background vocals, showing you how to get that “big” vocal sound.
The instruments are next to be mixed, including acoustic guitars, piano and keyboards, bass, drums, electric guitars and more! Russ then dives into important final tweaks, using automation and adding “magic dust” on the master buss. The final mix is then performed and Russ shows you how to bounce it to disc, and or use other means to create your master stereo file to share with the world. Just when you think it’s over, Russ has included a bonus video called “Cleaning Up Live Drums” for those who need how to do so.
