June 26 - The Mixdown - EQ, Compression, Mixing Workshop
For our third workshop, we're pleased to introduce "The Mixdown". Easily our most requested topic to date, this 4 hour event will introduce and dive deep into topics like acoustics, gain-staging, equalization, compression, and more.
What do we mean by the mixdown? Here's a few words from Adam to help introduce the concept.
"When talking about 'the mix', what we're really referring to is the perceived relationships between the individual elements of a song. How those elements are heard by the listener is extremely important and can easily make-or-break a track. How many great lyrics are hiding behind poorly mixed vocals? How many bass lines are muffled by mud and unnecessary noise in the low end? By learning the tools and techniques to manipulate these relationships we can better express ourselves as musicians and producers. In fact, doing so is critical to our success."
In short, if you're looking to take your productions to the next level, this is the workshop for you.
