To start out, Marc shares his take on organizing your session, and mindfully using templates to foster a fast, highly creative workflow, while still staying fresh, and developing a unique sound for the song at hand.

After that, it’s time to dive into the mix: Watch every move Marc makes, listen to the exact audio he listens to, and receive detailed explanations about his decisions along the way.

A Fool Proof System To Massive Rock Drums

When mixing Rock, you really need that hard-hitting, huge drum sound. Otherwise your entire mix will fall apart, sound whimpy, weak, and lifeless…

However, as you know, mixing live drums isn’t easy.

There are so many tracks to blend, and so many techniques to choose from!

In this course, Marc teaches you a fool-proof system to building a slamming drum sound from the ground up.

By first mixing the organic drums, and then enhancing the energy and punch with advanced techniques, such as:

1. Triggering room samples
2. Drum bus compression
3. Parallel compression
4. Saturation/transformers
5. Gating
6. Multiband expanders

Whether you’re a beginner, or you already have some experience:

This course will give you a blueprint to mixing powerful Rock drums, that will equip and inspire you for sessions to come.

Mix Energetic, In-Your Face Rock Vocals

Making Vocals sit well in a Rock mix has always been a challenge.

Of course! They’ve got to compete with massive drums and layers of heavy guitars. However, if you push your vocals too hard, they’ll stick out like a sore thumb…

So what’s the solution?

Stacking multiple layers of  processing!

In this course, Marc shows you how to use a combination of compression, saturation, EQ, and effects to make your vocals cut through a dense mix, and add space, expressiveness and power – without ever sounding harsh.

There is one thing that is often overlooked by beginners. Pro-engineers, on the other hand, spend a lot of time on this matter:

Final Tweaks & Automation.

These two steps are the key to taking your mixes from good to outstanding!

In this course, you’ll see every subtle move Marc makes to take this record over the top: From slightly adjusting his EQ points, to refining compressor settings, tweaking balances, as well as using extra automation to add movement, interest and excitement.

By applying these techniques to your future mixes, you’ll be able to turn good mixes into captivating classics.
