Our friends at iZotope are running a free audio mixing masterclass as a series of weekly tutorials taught by award-winning engineer and producer Enrique Gonzalez Müller (Kronos Quartet, Nine Inch Nails, Los Amigos Invisibles, Jason Newsted) and mastering engineer and iZotope Director of Education Jonathan Wyner.
These courses have been released on Mondays through to February 6th. We featured the 2nd part last week where Enrique and Jonathan covered Balancing like a music lover, not like an engineer.
This week they look at the next two tips under the title "Tackling gain staging and using reference recordings".
