In this course we will tackle all the problems during mixing and mastering, you might not know that you are facing.
Picture this, you made an incredible track that you are genuinely proud of. You realised your own unique vision of the song, created sick basslines and thought your tune had a good flow but it doesn't receive the attention you were hoping for.
Maybe your beat isn't quite danceable, because the awesome bassline you have designed isn't side-chained properly and the kick cannot provide the impact your track needs.
Perhaps your instruments are sitting in the same frequency band or getting muddy due to lack of stereo field in your mix. This course will teach you proper EQing and panning techniques to improve the clarity of the melodic elements in your track.
You listen to your track in comparison to others but you find that yours is way quieter and maybe not loud enough to compete with everybody else's. In the included lessons you will learn how to find the balance between saturation, compression and limiting in order to get a loud mix that isn't clipping or distorting.
You may be thinking to yourself that you will learn all these things from free tutorials online. But this course will save you the time and effort to search the internet for quality, in-depth explanations that don't just cover the same boring basics that you already heard of but don't know how to actually implement in your next song.
