Ian does a great job in taking you through the whole mixing process of a song. he very clearly explains the many mixing decisions and approaches one at a time and provides guidance in listening to the results. this class is very instructive and a pleasure to attend. awesome.
This isn't exactly a complete start-to-finish mixing tutorial, but you do get a good overview of the important mixing decisions and rationale behind them. Viewers will need a solid understanding of mixing concepts, so this course is not really suitable for beginners.
This is brilliant - watching a mix from start to finish. An absolute 'must see' for anyone who wants to improve how they mix. RPJ
I've just finished the drums section and these lessons are absolutely amazing. Ian goes through every little detail of his mix and I've already picked up quite a few techniques to use. Very well done, thanks!
