What You’ll Learn

Understand The Essence Of Sound

Many of us are writing, performing, and producing music on a daily basis.
But have we ever taken the time to truely understand the essence of sound?

What are ‘notes’ and pitches made of? How does sound travel? How do sound textures and timbre come about?

This introductory chapter will provide you with a deep understanding of audio, which will greatly improve your decision making during a mix, while also coming in handy if you’re ever looking to accoustically treat your room!

Master The Most Powerful Tool In Audio: EQ

EQ is arguably the most powerful tool available to us.

It allows us to shape the tone of individual instruments, remove unpleasant room ressonances, create clarity and definition in the mix, add presence, fullness and a lot more. We can even use EQ to position instruments front-to-back on the  virtual soundstage and create the illusion of a wider stereo image!

When applied properly, EQ can truely bring our recordings to life and make our performances shine.

Poor EQ decisions on the other hand can instantly ruin a perfectly great arrangement.

So how can we make good EQ choices? How can we reliably work with what we’re hearing through our speakers?

(Side note: I still remember the days when I used to print my mix and check it in my car 5 times a day! No, you’re not alone. And yes, it sucks! ;-))

These questions and a lot more are covered in this course.

You’ll learn the ins and outs of each EQ parameter, which EQ types there are and which purposes to use them for, all the way to real-life mixing examples, ear training exercises, and Cheatsheets with starting points for common instruments.

After taking this class, you’ll be able to expertly handle the beast called EQ. And create mixes with more clarity and definition than ever before!

Compression – A Beautiful Mystery?

For many engineers, Compression is one of the hardest techniques wrap their head around.

Even multi-Grammy winner Dave Pensado admitted that it took him about 10 years to fully understand this concept!

But what makes compression so confusing?

In addition to there being multiple compressor types, which all sound vastly different, compressors usually have 4 parameters which all work in conjunction with each other. – Which means if you turn one knob, you’ll also have to turn the others!

To top it all off, there are widely used concepts such as sidechain-compression, parallel compression, multiband compression, expanders and more.

We all know that compressors are powerful tools, which can take the impact and energy of our songs to a new level.

But how?

In this chapter, Sara will guide you through the jungle of compression techniques, saving you years of trial and error.

To start, you’ll learn how to choose the right compressor type, and expertly set each parameter to achieve the exact results you’re looking for.

  • Even out the dynamics of a performance
  • Add fullness and glue to a whole mix
  • Shape the transients (=punch) of percussive instruments such as drums
  • Bring out emotion and energy in vocals
  • and a lot more!

After that, we’ll take a deep dive into advanced concepts and get you on the fast-track to using techniques which have taken pro-engineers years to develop.
Take this class today and lift the vail of mystery once and for all!

Create A 3-Dimensional Soundstage

The one thing I admire the most about pro mixers is the incredible detail, depth and dimension they are able to achieve in their mixes.

Every instrument has its own unique space in the mix and sounds so clear that you feel like you can touch it.

Great mixers manage to fully immerse their listeners in sound. – And that’s what you’re going to learn about in this chapter.

Using Reverb and Delay!

You’ll receive an in-depth walkthrough of different Reverb/Delay types and their controls, and discover how and when to use each one in a real life mixing scenario.

After taking this class, you’ll be equipped with go-to settings for every common instrument, as well as the knowlegde to adjust your settings to perfectly match the source material.

Sign up today and create more spacious, and 3-dimensional mixes than ever before!
