Take your mixing to the next level
Mixing breakthroughs is a four hour course that dives deep into teaching you how to become a better mix engineer. You’ll learn techniques, mindsets and approaches for getting better mixes.
Learn how professionals set up their sessions
In module one, Justin reveals and breaks down his mixing template, which he’s refined after years of experience and in-depth interviews with top mixers. Justin’s template allows you to settle the technical aspects of mixing upfront so you can focus on the creative decisions that truly make a great mix.
Is your workflow working for you or against you?
You’ll learn best practices for routing effects, setting up reverbs and delays, labeling tracks, grouping instruments, and compression on the stereo bus. You’ll also learn what Justin considers the ideal block of time and workflow for mixing, so you can stay fresh and productive.
Balances & Panning
Learn the best way to start your mix
In module two, Justin gets into the nitty-gritty of how to start mixing with techniques you can apply immediately. He shares timeless strategies to minimize guesswork and increase your confidence in taking a mix where it needs to go. You’ll learn why the beginning isn’t always the best place to start a mix (and where to start instead).
Are you getting your balances right?
You’ll gain tactics for getting a mix 80% complete simply by correctly balancing levels among the instruments. You’ll also pick up a classic technique for panning that just works.
Learn the best ways to use EQ
In module three, Justin lays out the essential concepts for achieving radio-ready clarity with EQ. He teaches you which frequency range is essential to get right first, as well as what to avoid when you EQ.
Is your low end as powerful as it could be?
You’ll learn about the number one rule for EQing low end, as well as how to make two low end instruments (e.g., kick drum and bass) perfectly compliment each other. Finally, you’ll get some counter-intuitive tactics for getting thick lows and crisp highs across all the different instruments in your mix.
Learn essential concepts for using compression in a mix
In module four, Justin offers a fresh and thorough explanation of a topic that confuses many engineers: compression. He outlines strategies and techniques for using compression whether you want an organic, transparent sound, or an aggressive, processed sound.
Are your attack and release settings ideal?
You’ll learn about the four key parameters of compression: threshold, ratio, attack, and release—and how to adjust those parameters (in combination) to control dynamics, increase sustain and maximize punch. He also covers parallel and multiband compression for transparently adding weight.
Learn how smart use of effects can level up your mix
In module five, Justin breaks down the most important effects: reverb, delay, and saturation, so you can add that extra polish and dimension to your mix.
Tips, tricks and techniques for using reverb and delay
You’ll get a wealth of actionable tips, including: which three reverb types and which two delay types you should always have on your aux tracks; calculating a reverb’s pre-delay for an epic reverb tail; adjusting the prominence of delay and reverb with EQ; placing instruments further back in a mix with reverb; and using distortion for bass and the mix bus.
