About This Class


Mixing isn’t about inserting a bunch of fancy and expensive plugins hoping to get a radio ready sound. Rather it’s all about strategic use of a few key effects that you already own.

In this class you’ll learn how to craft a professional sounding mix with the stock plugins that came with your DAW. No upgrades necessary!

Through strategic use of things like EQ, compression, reverb, delay and distortion we’ll take tracks recorded in a home studio and polish them up to commercial standards.

You’ll learn how to:

  • Process your master fader
  • Harness parallel compression in multiple ways to fatten up your mix
  • Get clarity through a few simple EQ moves.

This class is ideal for the bedroom or project studio musician who has a basic working knowledge of their DAW but wants to learn how to take their mixes to the next level.
