About This Class

In this introductory audio mixing class you will learn several key mixing tips to help you take your hip hop music production to the next level!

You will learn everything from organization to properly eqing and adding effects to your audio. Logic Pro is the software of choice used to teach these mixing fundamentals but please note that what is learned can be applied to any DAW. So if you use FL Studio, Ableton, Ableton Live, Protools, Logic Pro X, Reason, or any other DAW that is perfectly fine. By the end of this training you will have the tools to make your mixes sound more polished and sonically amazing.

All you have to do is enroll, watch all the videos, and actually spend the time practicing what is taught and you will be well on your way to producing a more professional sound!

**Please note**

These are the basics and you must, and I mean must, spend time practicing mixing your music to get better. Unlike a course on how to operate software, while the basic fundamentals are straight forward, specific instructions are hard to give because every song is different. For example, in the class you will learn about frequencies, and it is generally stated that kick drums fall under 500hz. In order to get the best sound out of the kick drum in your mix, how you adjust the frequency is based on how the kick drum sounds in your mix not just on the fact that it is a kick drum. I don't say this to scare you away, because these fundamentals are very basic, but please approach the information with the foreknowledge that everything is based on what you hear, and this class will be teaching you the basic fundamentals on what you will generally need to know to properly mix your music. I look forward to teaching you more. See you on the other side!
