Course Highlights

  • Complete Vocal Chain for a Perfect Mix

    Learn how to achieve vocal clarity, warmth and weight with a complete EDM/pop-ready vocal mixing chain; fit the vocal perfectly in the rest of your mix; add depth with reverbs and delays; plus learn parallel compression techniques to add vocal presence.

  • Shape a Pounding Low End

    The kick and bass are the backbone of EDM and modern pop production. Learn how to get them to work together, ensure your kicks are tuned to the key of your track, achieve clear lows with different sidechaining techniques, and take control of your low end frequency spectrum.

  • M/S Techniques for Mixing Synths & FX

    The key to mixing dense synth and piano textures is to balance their Mid and Side information, in order to keep the punch and drive in the mid and the sense of dimension in the sides. Learn simple techniques for achieving this, plus ways to give your sweeps, drops and drum fills maximum impact.

  • Finalize Your Mixes for Streaming

    EDM masters are some of the loudest you’ll find, because producers want all the instruments to hit hard on the club PA, in the car, and on any streaming service. We show you mix bus and mastering techniques for getting the loudest levels possible while maintaining clarity and punch.
