Learn How To Make Your HipHop Tracks Hit Hard:


Hard-Hitting Beats:

The pride of any HipHop track is its beat, more specifically HUGE kicks and 808s! If you fail to get your low-end right, nobody will take your tracks seriously. In this tutorial, you’ll learn how to mix knocking kick drums and growling 808s that’ll have your rearview mirror vibrating.

In-Your-Face Rap Vocals:

You want your rap vocals to sound raw and in your face, so the rapper’s flow, delivery and lyrics can dominate the track. However, if you leave your vocals completely dry (without any effects), they may stick out like a sore thumb and not blend well with the beat. Ariel shows you how to mix tight and up-front vocals and how to subtly work in effects to help them blend with the beat without losing authenticity.

Creating Excitement & Tension

Let’s face it: Beats can be repetitive at times.
– And that’s not a bad thing, it puts you in a certain head space and vibe! But you would be surprised at all the little details that go into the production and mix to spice things up and keep your listeners interest. Ariel shows you how to use various special FX to liven up your samples, create breakdowns and build tension in your mix by using automation.

Achieve Fullness & Loudness

Master bus processing is especially important in HipHop. If you get the mixbus processing or the mastering wrong, the whole song can be ruined.

This tutorial will show you how to take you mix to a competitive level, so it can stand up next to any commercial release. – Without losing low-end impact, causing distortion or a ‘pumping effect’.

Learn not just the how, but why

Watching Youtube tutorials and learning new techniques is great, but it can become confusing and overwhelming if you’re missing a plan, a strategy to approach your mixes. By understanding the why behind every mixing decision you’ll be able to really grow as a mixer.

Vocals being the king of the song, it was always tricky for me to get them right – especially when you have multiple stacks of background vocals. This tutorial really helped me out to see them break down their vocal chains step by step and explain the thought process behind mixing vocals in detail. By following the techniques I’ve learned from this course my vocals are sounding a lot more polished and professional.

– Amos Y., Engineer

For a long time I really struggled to get everything to sit well in a dense mix, but watching David and Warren go through each track step by step really showed me the problem areas in my mixes and I was able to go back and fix them.

I´m now much more confident in my skills as a mixer.

After being a member of Pro Mix Academy for only a few months, my mixes are sounding much better and more professional. I´m able to get more work and mix songs for various artists by using the songs as pieces in my portfolio.

– Clayton A., Producer/Musician/Artist

After watching ‘Anatomy of a Mix’, the tips and tricks that I learned allowed me to save a home recorded mix I was ready to give up on.

The easy going delivery also makes it easy to digest the information they’re giving you and sit through hours of tutorial at a time.

– Sam K., Producer/Engineer
