Course Highlights

  • Mix Pro Hip Hop Vocals Start to Finish

    Learn a powerful process for mixing in-your-face hip hop vocals with presence, attitude, warmth, weight, and continuity between different recorded takes. You will learn every step in this process, with the help of the structured vocal chain in the included DAW session templates.

    Features: Glue Mixes without “Squashing”
  • Craft Powerful Bass for Any System

    Your basslines, 808s and subs should sound great anywhere, whether on a hi-fi system or on small speakers. You will learn an easy-to-follow methodology for creating a full low end that does not sound muddy or clash with the rest of your mix – using dynamic EQ, sub enhancement techniques, and more.

  • Shape Punchy Kicks to Perfection

    The kick drum is the backbone of your track. It should be punchy and clear, no matter what else you have going on in the mix. You will learn an effective, mix-saving method for identifying the three main frequency components of every kick, and shaping it to perfection within the context of your overall track.

    Features: Fast and Efficient Operation

    Your mixes may undergo extra loudness adjustment and compression, as soon as they are uploaded to Spotify, YouTube or Apple Music. Learn how to mix in a way that will enable you to meet streaming platform standards, without running the risk of over-limiting or over-compressing.
