Ever wonder how artists make their music sound so good? It’s all in the mix. Even when big musicians are touring on the road and recording in hotel rooms they sound incredible because their engineers are so good.
I can’t promise that after this class you’ll sound like Drake. BUT I can teach you the basics so you’re one step closer to getting there.
With over 10 years of experience mixing, recording, and writing records I’ve put together my own system and this quick and dirty guide to mixing tropical pop vocals.
So, what’s next?
There are so many lessons I picked up over the years and through my time behind the scenes in the music industry that have helped me immensely and I’ll share them with you throughout these courses.
One of the biggest gems I’ve learned is this: Do it yourself.
No one is going to care about your music as much as you do. If you have the DRIVE to succeed and the HUNGER to develop your craft you’ll be able to make it. This is the era of no gatekeepers. No excuses. So what are you waiting for?
Mixing is a skill that is incredibly marketable and distinguishes between an amateur and a professional level sound.
I’m not saying you’ll become a rockstar overnight. But with what I teach you in this course and the persistence to apply it you’ll be that much closer.
Who is this course for?
This class is designed for artists, producers, and engineers who are starting out and want to get professional sounding records from their bedroom.
As an artist one of the best skills I ever learned was how to mix. You have COMPLETE control over how your music sounds out and it’s an incredible service if you’re looking for a full-time or part-time hustle.
By The End Of This Course
I want to be clear. This isn’t about shortcuts. This isn’t about secrets. This is about learning the fundamentals, applying them to your own work, and taking your career into your own hands. These are tried and true methods I have learned through countless tutorials and recording sessions over the years that I wish someone had taught me at the beginning.
I also want to make the statement that there is no right way or wrong way to this. This is simply my way. If you want to hone your sound take your future into your own hands and craft what sounds good to YOU.
What If I Only Have Stock Plug-ins?
Great question, you. If you only have Stock plug-ins you can still follow along and learn the concepts.
Remember, it doesn't matter what tools you're using as much as it does how well you know your tools.
Don't let fancy plug-ins be an excuse, you can achieve everything I'm doing here with what you already have in your DAW.
