You’re Mixing It Wrong: Live N Local Workshop Aug 2016

1st Aug, 2016
by Simon Moro



The workshop will commence with an overview of the topics covered and expected outcomes for attendees.

Hear and feel the difference

A/B examples of the same session being mixed differently to demonstrate the difference a mix can make to the overall impact of a song.

Why do you sound better live, and how to translate this in a recording?

A common challenge is capturing the live energy of a performance and making it translate in the recording. Explanations and solutions will be provided.

Creating space in a mix

With near-unlimited track counts, and months to record layer upon layer, creating space in a mix can become challenging. Common tools including reverb, pan, delay, and level will be discussed in the context of creating space.

Deconstructing a mix

An attendee’s track will be re-mixed before the workshop ready for a detailed walkthrough of the process undertaken to create better results.
