Module 1 - Foundational Knowledge & Approach (Vids 1-3):
After a short intro we'll look at the essential foundational knowledge of mixing, best practices and tips on getting started, what to do if you are having difficulty getting your mixes to sound great and what steps to take. Of course great mixing is all about balance so we'll look in detail at what your mental approach should be so you are giving the right elements get the attention and the space they require.
Module 2 - Mixing Low End (Vids 4-8):
Bass is a vital part of EDM music, it acts as the 'support' for the rest of your mix, it ties everything together and it's what provides that dreamy warmth and power to all of our favourite tracks. Get it right and it will make the dance floor tick in any club around the world but it's also one of the hardest things to get right consistently. In this section you'll learn my easy to repeat step by step process to always get the perfect low end in every mix.
Module 3 - Group & Bus Mixing (Vids 9-12):
Good EDM mixes require good separation between the elements in your mix. Jon shows you how to use Group/bus channel mixing to divide up your mix and process those groups to create further separation. You'll learn about the applications of multiband compression, matching opposite EQ's, how to create 'dynamic' space and a whole load of skills that will ensure the elements have the space they need.
Module 4 - Creating Space in Your Mix (Vids 13-15):
Great mixes are interesting, diverse and have a sense of depth and space. In this section you'll learn how to create contrast between the different sections of your track, making them more interesting and creating more emotional depth. You'll learn how to create a believable percieved space using multiple reverbs which you can use to tune the depth of each individual element and we'll look at the different panning modes and how they can help you with mixing.
Module 5 - Transferability & Reference Tracks (Vids 16-17):
These days your mixes will be played on everything from phones to club systems. Here we'll look at how to make sure your mixes sound as good on as many playback mediums as possible. We'll look at the best way to use reference tracks and how to use them to improve very specific attributes of our own mixes without getting lost trying to match every facet of another producer's mix. Mid-side processing also comes under this and we'll cover it here.
Module 6 - Putting it all into Practice (Vids 18-25):
Here Jon goes through and mixes 2 different style tracks and shows you how all the skills you have just learned fit into place. The first track we tackle is a down-tempo track with a female vocal. It's a clean mix so it's all about using the soundstage to create a beautiful space for all the elements to sit in. The second track is a busy Prog House track that requires a different approach, some elemens need to take centre stage, some need taming.
Module 7 - Home Studio Acoustics - A Complete Guide (Vids 26-29):
In order to get better mixes we need to have confidence in our own abilities and in the equipment we use but if we are using those skills or our equipment in an untreated room the chances are very high that we are making mistakes in our mixes. This can be solved in part by treating the studio space you are working in with acoustic absorbers/bass traps. So in this 4 part guide Jon will take you on a practical journey through the knowledge and skills you need to be able to make informed decisions and how to get the most out of your home studio.
The diference between a treated room and and untreated room is night and day and there are many things you can do that will have a positive effect on your mixing environment and don't require a huge budget, or the learning of complicated software that uses specialized equipment. Jon will show you step by step how to build highly effective and cheap acoustic absorbers/bass traps that will help give you more confidence and ultimately help you get better mixes.
Bonus Videos (Vids 30-31):
