Mixing

Why Mixing Matters

A great mix can never save a bad song… But a bad mix can ruin a great song. Too many mixers today are ruining good songs by trying to impress other mixers. We need to remember WHO we’re mixing for!

Watch me help fix my students’ mixes

The fastest way to improve your mixes is to get feedback from a professional outside source – an experienced engineer who can help you refine your musical vision. This video shows a couple examples of how I’ve helped my students rapidly pinpoint & fix the problems in their mixes.

You gotta mix with courage!

One of the main reasons people don’t have pro-sounding mixes is that they treat the tracks like delicate china. In this video, I’m sharing how I executed my vision for Emery’s “I Don’t Know You At All,” giving you some insight into how you can make more fearless moves in your mixes.

Your raw tracks should sound this good

What do “good source tones” actually sound like? And how much should change from the raw tracks to the final mix? In this video, I share 3 projects I worked on so you can hear what they sounded like before mixing and then after the final mix.

Why Your Mixes Sound Small

In this Pro Production System Q&A call clip, I help a member who just isn’t getting the wide mixes he’s looking for, despite using stereo width plugins. My advice? Ditch the width plugins, focus on the fundamentals and the width of your mix will take care of itself.
