Course Structure

Module 1 - Mixing Fundamentals

 

In this first module you will learn some of the fundamental starting and setup tips for your mixing projects. You'll learn what you need to ask for if you are mixing professionally for others, how to setup your project so it is easier to use and navigate and what tools you have in Cubase to help you as your mix progresses.

We will also be covering things like practical guides to what sample rate you should use and when it's applicable to use higher sample rates. You will also learn about 'gain staging' your projects so your project is never 'stressed' and errors are avoided. Amongst these foundational lessons, you will also be learning the basic setup of Cubase with respect to mixing and what parts of it are used for this task.

 

Module 2 - Cubase Mixing Functions

 

Cubase is one of the best DAW's for mixing, not only for it's state of the art audio engine and speed of workflow but because the features and tools it provides for mixing have been crafted and improved upon over decades.

You will learn to use each of these tools to help you get better mixes, quicker and with less hassle. There are many tools like spectral curve comparison, mixer snapshots, channel strips and much more that you will learn about and master.

You will also learn how to clean up the Cubase mixer and organize it for easier mixing, how to use mixing in mono to get better mixes and even how the Cubase Control Room can be used for mixing tasks with multiple monitor outputs.

 

Module 3 - Cubase Mixing Tools

 

Here we will take a look at every single mixing related plugin that comes with Cubase (all versions). As we go through each plugin, the purpose of each tool is also explained; for example: When we look at the compressors, you will also learn what compression is, when you should use it and how far you can push it. We cover a lot in this module, compression, multiband compression, side chained compression, EQ, saturation, distortion, reverb, delay, noise gates, panning, stereo enhancing and there are sometimes multiple plugins in these categories.

Each and every plugin is shown with clear explanations and examples so you can be sure you will know when to use them in your own mixes.

Module 4 - Cubase Mixing Processes

 

Now we have covered all that Cubase has to offer it is time to start putting the tools and features together and start making truly professional level mixes that you can be proud of.

The best mixes are the ones that don't fight you every step of the way. You will learn how to have a near effortless mix and what your approach needs to be able in order to achieve this.

With that goal in mind you will learn multiple modern techniques on how to create depth in your mixes and how it is much more than just reverb and delay that achieves this, how to create space between the elements in the same frequency spectrum using advanced techniques, how to add warmth & excitation, how to mix live drums, vocals, guitars, lead synths, basslines, mix double tracked elements and much more. This is a huge module and is vital for your mixing to progress to a professional level.

 

Module 5 - Group & Bus Mixing

 

Group or Bus mixing is the icing on the cake, if you have gotten the first stages right then you can use this to add that sparkle and professional polish to your mixes.

In this module you will learn how to setup groups for specifically separating the sections of your mix, like separating the low end from everything else or the drums etc, and then use Cubase plugins like multiband compression, EQ and saturation to then enhance those groups.

You will also learn about how you can add more creative and transformative effects to your mix through parallel processing; like dirtying up a rock mix or enhancing air of a dance mix.

You will also learn professional mixing and automation techniques to help you make sections of your track 'pop' using a technique called contrasting. This is a powerful technique that can be used in conjunction with parallel processing, which you will learn all about.

 

Module 6 - Example Mixes

 

Lastly you can watch a professional mix of a track from start to finish. This will cover the breadth of the Cubase functions and music production skills and techniques you have learned throughout this tutorial.

QUESTIONS & ANSWERS

Ask a Question
  • Hi, I was curious to know if you ever update these courses for any changes/additions in Cubase 12 (or newer) since the tutorial was created for v10.5 or does it just come as is? Also, how relevant would you say the course is for a Cubase 12 user that's never used a previous version?

    Hi, we do update courses from time to time when we feel they are very out of date. It's typically every 4 or 5 years. Although each new version adds a new feature or 2 here and there, they don't affect the overall skills / theme taught in the course. We do recommend our beginners course before any other course if you are new to Cubase.

  • Hi! I‘ve been studying with your 'cubase ultimate beginners tutorial', which is really great! But I have a small question, is there any subtitle in those videos? Subtitles could help me follow you better!

    Glad you're enjoying the course. No, sorry there are no subtitles.

  • Hello my name is Orrin Bynum. I was trying to save up to buy “ The ultimate guide to mixing course“, but you keep going up in the price. Why is that? You keep sending me emails about the course being 20% off and when I am about ready to buy you all up the price. So what is the real cost of the course? Is it $49 dollars or $60 dollars or 20% off of those prices? Please respond soon. Plus I been to know if these courses come on CD format. I don’t have WiFi in my home. I only have the internet on my phone and iPad. I’ll have to take my iMac out of my home to download large programs which is a big problem for me during these times. Please answer me soon. Thank you.

    Hi Orrin, The price does not keep going up. We offered the course for the first 9 days with a 20% discount. It was clearly stated when the price would return to normal and there was a constant countown timer on the website. We then sent a very clear reminder email. Perhaps your email is delayed? The course is download only. Best regards, BTP
