About This Class

This is an introduction to how equalizers, expander/gates, and compressor/limiters function.  Once the basics are covered I will show you how to go about setting and applying these effects while mixing a song.  Additional classes will cover the other aspects to mixing a song: parallel effects, editing, tuning vocals, mixing instruments, and finishing the mix.

Matt Hayes

Recording and Mixing Engineer

I have been involved in the music industry for over 15 years, and have been engineering (recording and mixing) for over 10 of those years. Originally, I started out as a musician before becoming involved behind the scenes in recording studios. I have worked in many different genres of music through the years, and I am a voting member for the Grammy Awards. Some of the music I have worked on is RIAA certified as well as grammy nominated.
