About This Class

This course is designed to make the processing of mixing your track feel more like music and less like engineering.  You'll learn how EQ and compression work together to help you make the right musical choices for each track in your mix.  You'll learn what to listen for when using a compressor.  

Students get started by downloading the stems (audio files).  These stems can be used in an DAW (ProTools, Cubase, Ableton, Logic, etc.).  The lessons in this course are presented with Cubase, but the main focus is EQ and Compression which are universal topics that apply to any DAW.  Follow along with this walkthrough-style course to learn how the technicalities of mixing with EQ and Compression.  With these skills, you'll be able to stay focused on your music without having to compromise on a half-baked final mix.
