Whether you're composing an absolutely 'monster' orchestral cue, a delicate string quartet, or tracking a hard-hitting rock band, by the time you've finished recording (or composing) you're usually left with a bunch of individual tracks that somehow need to be massaged and blended together to achieve a clear, well defined and balanced final track.

But as you listen more closely you notice the kick and bass are masking each other, the guitars are competing with the vocals for the listener’s attention, the string section is fighting with the choir and the percussion bed is not sitting well with just about everything.  

There can be a million different decisions on your way to crafting a perfect mix. So where do you start and what path should you follow to make sure you get the result you want?

Let The Fun Begin

This comprehensive course is designed to give you all the tools and knowledge you'll need to overcome the problems you'll encounter on your path to mixing satisfaction. It will also help you to develop a 'process' or 'roadmap' when it comes to getting a great mix and give you confidence with every step you take.

The curriculum

Explore Essential Mixing Foundation

Available on your Personal Computer, Tablet & Smartphone.

Essential Mixing Foundation is designed to give you sound knowledge of mixing in general. It’s not specifically written for 'orchestral mixing' but it includes so many 'gems of wisdom' it will assist you greatly in any mixing project. In fact, you’ll need to master this course first, before successfully moving to “mixing orchestral music”. 

You'll see how the PROs set up their DAWS, organize their tracks, and handle routings to make the process flow more smoothly.

You'll discover 'time based' effects like delay and reverb as well as 'dynamics based' effects like compression and limiting and how to use them to bring a pro-level sound to your track.

You'll learn how to build your mix 'from the ground up' discovering the secrets to getting all the tracks to sit together well rather than fighting for attention.

And you'll learn the important considerations when it comes to mixing for a video.
