Course 20: Song 2 Mixdown

During your first mixdown we kept things a bit simpler so that you wouldn’t get too overwhelmed. This time around, we’re stepping things up! On song two we’ll get into more advanced mixing techniques and jump into automation with the completion of not one, not two, but three different mixes of your song. We’ll also be pulling back the curtain on a few practices you may already be doing intuitively like giving every instrument (digital or analog) their own space in the “virtual stage” of your mix. We’ll discuss amplitude, pan, frequency, uncover various recording workflows in the arrangement window, and take a digital field trip to Arturia to take a look at their software and hardware. We’ll finish it off with a listen to Billie Eilish’s record-breaking album When We Fall Asleep, Where do We Go?
