Achieve Pristine Pop Mixes
That Can Compete With Any Commercial Release
A Grammy Winner Reveals His Mixing Secrets
When you listen to modern Pop and R&B mixes these days, the bar is incredibly high.
The clarity and sheen in the vocals, the definition and punch of the low-end, as well as the incredible 3-dimensional soundstage these mixers are able to create… astonishing!
This polished, professional sound is something we all strive for with our music.
However, it can be quite difficult to figure out how to get there.
I still remember when I mixed my first ‘airy’ ethereal Pop vocal…
I dialled in the high-end, compressed the heck out of it (create expressiveness and presence, you know?) and added some lush reverbs and delays to give it dimension.
So far so good, right!?
Well… turns out the vocal sounded great in my studio, but harsh and tinny on a number of other playback systems. Including my own car. – UUGH…
The fact is, striking that perfect balance between ‘pushing your sound to the absolute maximum’ and ‘overdoing it’ is quite difficult.
It takes a lot of experience, knowledge, and advanced processing to hit that sweet spot.
Why am I telling you all this?
If you’re going after that polished Pop sound on your own, it’s going to take a long time.
But what if you didn’t have to?
What if one of the world’s top engineers invited you to their studio, to SHOW YOU everything they’ve learnt over decades of creating music?
