Powerful Organic Drums 

Hard-hitting drums are the foundation of every great metal mix. However – especially in Metal – this can be quite challenging.

You’re dealing with fast paced Kick and Snare patterns, which have to sound tight, punchy and cut through layers and layers of heavy guitars.

While doing all that, please make sure the low-end isn’t cluttered up. – Good luck! 😉

This course teaches you the mixing techniques you need to craft teeth-rattling organic drum sounds and achieve the energy and impact you’re looking for.

In-Your-Face Vocals

Especially in dense Metal mixes, it can be tough to make your vocals cut through the mix and compete with heavy guitars and drums. 

Learn how to shape vocals to stay up-front at all times, enhance the character and emotion of the singer and add dimension by using effects.

Take Your Mix From Good To Great

Given enough time, any musician can create a decent sounding mix. However, it’s the final 10-20% separates the men from the boys.

Learn how to add polish to your songs and create tension and excitement by using advanced automation.

Create A Massive Wall Of Sound

With multiple layers of heavy guitars, keys and synths taking up space in the arrangement, it can be easy to end up with a congested mix, that lacks definition, depth and energy.

This tutorial will help you understand how to skillfully blend multiple layers of instruments to create a massive wall of sound, while still giving each part it’s own space in the mix.

Albums Which Stand The Test Of Time  

If you’re looking to mix albums which can stand the test of time, there are two things you want to achieve:

1. Create a well-rounded piece of art by maintaining a cohesive sound throughout the album

2. Take your listeners on a captivating musical journey, which makes them forget everything around them.

This course will teach you how to do both!

Mastering: Impact & Loudness

With budgets decreasing, mix engineers are often asked to master their own mixes.

Being able to offer this service to your clients will grant you a massive advantage over other engineers who don’t!

Learn how to use plugins to turn out professional masters that can hold their own against any commercial release. – And provide your artists with a finished record, ready for iTunes, Spotify or the Radio.
