Mix A Song By A-List Musicians
And Songwriters

The first step to building a career as a Mixer is to create an impressive portfolio to showcase your skills.

However – especially when first starting out – you will often work with inexperienced bands and sub-par recordings, which have you fixing mistakes instead of getting creative with your mix.

That’s why we’re providing you with a song featuring some of the world’s best musicians and songwriters, so you can show off your true potential as a mixer!

The Lickerish Quartet’s latest single ‘Lighthouse Spaceship’

The Lickerish Quartet consists of three former Jellyfish members Roger Joseph Manning Jr. (Keyboardist/Singer/Songwriter), Eric Dover (Guitarist/Singer) and Tim Smith (Bassist/Singer/Songwriter).

After producing two critically acclaimed albums with the cult-rockband Jellyfish, Roger Manning went on to tour with Beck, Jay-Z, Blink 182 and Johnny Cash, while Eric Dover found his new home as a frontman for Slash and guitarist for Alice Cooper.

Tim Smith’s career development was equally amazing: he managed to claim a spot in Sheryl Crow’s band in 1996 and has been touring and recording with her ever since.

Recently, the 3 band members have reunited and teamed up drum virtuso Jeremy Stacey (Sheryl Crow, Joe Cocker), to revive the Classic Rock sound which Jellyfish was famous for:

With a heavy dose of ‘70s vibe, incredible Queen-like vocal harmonies (Brian May was actually a fan!) draped over jangly electric guitars and exceptional bass grooves, their arrangements and performances are second to none.

Today, YOU have the chance to get your hands on these recordings.

Mix a song by the industries Crème de la Crème, add it to your portfolio and entice new bands to work with you!

But that’s not all: You’ll have world-class Mixer Ken Sluiter (James Blunt, Weezer, Augustines) walk you through every step of the mixing process!

Create The Classic Rock Sound – Using Plugins

When we think about classic Rock records, we think: Warmth, full bodied guitars and powerful yet smooth drums. All of these characteristics are usually achieved by mixing on Consoles and using state-of-the art analogue equipment – which almost nobody can afford!

This course shows you that this doesn’t have to be the case: Ken mixes this song purely in the box, using affordable plugins only. And shows you how you can create the classic Rock sound in your Home Studio!

 

Huge Drum Sounds – Without Samples!

If the drums aren’t punching you in the chest, it probably isn’t a Rock record! Learn how to shape live drums to sound lush and spacious, while adding the punch you need to create a highly energetic and funky mix.

Achieve Smooth Vocals & Harmonies

Creating an amazing vocal sound is the most important task of an engineer. Especially when working with incredibly talented singers such as the Jellyfish members, you better bring your a-game!

Learn how to establish a smooth and present lead vocal sound, and add special processing to your harmonies to take your mix into another dimension.
