Grammy winning engineer Phil Allen gives you a deep understanding of the most important mixing tools, so you can effectively apply them in mixes:
You’ll become more confident in your mixing and learn a fresh approach to getting radio ready tracks in your home studio. No more skimming through presets and hoping for the best: Whether it’s Vocals, Drums, Bass, Guitars, Piano or Programming. – You’ll be able to take the sound you’re hearing in your head and make it come out of the speakers. Regardless of which DAW or plugins you use.
Give your mixes the clarity, depth, and punch they deserve!
“If you don’t understand the concepts of EQ and Compression at a very bare-bones level, if you’re not making the right moves, throwing an expensive plugin or hardware compressor on it won’t help you at all.” – Phil Allen
IN THIS COURSE, YOU’LL LEARN HOW TO:
USE EQ TO CRAFT CLEAR, OPEN AND DETAILED MIXES AND GIVE EACH INSTRUMENT ITS OWN SPACE IN THE MIX.
No other tool can shape and mold your mix with more power and precision than an EQ.
Phil breaks down basic and advanced EQ controls and shows you how to use them to achieve clarity, definition and separation in your mixes, and help your instruments to sit well together.
You’ll learn how to easily find the right frequencies to cut and boost to achieve the sound you are looking for – without needing an EQ cheatsheet. Because let’s face it: Every recording is different!
“COMPRESSION IS ONE OF THE HARDEST THINGS TO MASTER. IN THEORY IT’S EASY, BUT IN PRACTICE IT’S VERY DIFFICULT.”
Compression can be used to achieve a lot of great things: Smoothing out a performance, make an instrument more present, add impact and fullness to a sound, enhance detail and emotions, make it more specious, or even shape the individual hits.
However, compressors have a lot of different controls, which all interact with each other, which makes compression very complex. So how do we set each parameter to achieve the sound we’re looking for?
Phil explains each parameter, what it does and shows you fool-proof system of setting up a compressor to achieve the results you’re looking for every time.
