If you record music, mix in the studio either at home or in a pro environment, work in live sound or even video – chances are you’ve used the three foundations of mixing – EQ, Compression and Delay/Reverb.
But how much have you thought about exactly what goes on under the hood?
What exactly is EQ, and what do the different models do that makes them unique?
Why do certain compressors sound a specific way?
What reverb should I choose for a specific application, and what do the controls do?
These questions may leave your head spinning, and cloud your workflow with “option paralysis”.
In these courses, Adam Steel from Hop Pole Studios (creator of our Ultimate Guide to Reaper) shows you exactly how to get to grips with each concept, so that when the time comes you’re unfazed by choices and can quickly get mixing your way, armed with a deep understanding of the best practices of the last 50 years of pro audio.
