About This Class

This class covers problem-solving and creative methods to raise your mixes to professional standards using only the audio effects included in Ableton Live 9.

You will learn how to analyse, critic, fix, and embellish all parts of your songs using tools like volume automation, reverb, panning, eqing and compression. More than knowing what these tools do, you will know when to apply them, how to combine them, and when NOT to use them.

The project will involve mixing audio stems that I will provide. You also have the choice to mix your own project as long as you show us the material before and after your mix. The project is about the development of your mix rather than the final result.

This class is geared towards Ableton users, but the concept explained are applicable in any other DAW.

- Knowledge of the basic functionality in Ableton Live or any other DAW.
- Familiarity with the terms: spectrum, frequency, transient, fundamental, harmonics, mono and stereo.

Some days, I have to score a quirky movie with an accordion, while the other, I ...
