MIXING EXPLAINED

Mixing has been around since the first recording studios.

After a song is composed, played and recorded, mixing is the next stage and it consists in levelling the recorded material and fix areas of conflict between different audio sources so that the listener can enjoy clarity in each element without the occurrence of certain elements masking others and prevent some of the recorded material from being heard.

DANCE MUSIC PRODUCER


(Why do I need a mix?)

With the advancement of technology, recording and mixing equipment became available for the general public and with with the birth of electronic music a new “animal” was born... The composer/musician/producer/mixing engineer/promoter/performing artist.

To be excellent at one of the above is extremely difficult but to be very good at all is almost impossible. Still, it is possible has there are quite a few artists that can do this, but it takes many years of practice and study unless you were born with a hearing gift and even then you’d still have to practice and study to be able to release a song completely produced by you.

Only multitalented people can ever achieve such standards hence why many give up along the road to success when they could have been great at some of the areas mentioned.

I believe that some of the most common types of people that look to have their songs mixed are as follows:

1 – Those who are serious about their music and know that a mix will benefit from a new pair of fresh ears in a new room.

2 – Those who don’t have facilities to mix. (Have bad acoustics or poor quality audio monitors.)

3 – Professionals who don’t have time to go to the studio and produce their tracks on the road.

4 – Those who do not enjoy mixing or don’t want to go trough it’s learning process.

5 – Amateurs looking to learn from a more experienced mixer. (Not all mix engineers give out their tricks but most will point out areas of potential improvement.)

6 – Labels looking to improve their artists chances of success.
