Composing the mix
Other mixing courses typically focus on the surface level - tools. This is important knowledge, but “book learning” always takes a backseat to real world experience. It’s only by understanding how and why your mix is affected by composition and sound design that the process can come together to yield a professional and polished result. Once you apply your new skills you will never have to pay for mixing help again. Composing the Mix will save you thousands of dollars over your career.
Learning the why of mixing allows you to move fast and make the right decision before ear fatigue sets in.
Making a mix sound good on your monitors is one thing, making a mix that sounds good everywhere is quite another.
Learn the magic question that instantly yields the answer of when to use which process. You'll wish you had a time machine to tell yourself in the past.
Have you ever noticed that truly masterful mixing engineers seem to do almost nothing? Learn how to the tiny changes that yield massive results.
It took me 20 years of sustained struggle to make this breakthrough the hard way. You get to "cheat" and learn it all the easy way. I'm jelly!
