Being able to properly mix-down your tracks is often the difference between amateur producers with potential and producers who are releasing their records. A track may sound good in your bedroom, but big club sound systems can be a lot more unforgiving, amplifying any imperfections in the mix.
Mixing techniques such as EQ, compression, effects, sidechaining and automation are vital to adding the necessary professional sheen to your tracks however they are by no means easy to comprehend, and this is usually the stage in the music production learning curve where people come un-stuck.
So as you’ve probably guessed, we at Point Blank have come up with a comprehensive 4 week course focussed on mixing electronic music. The course includes over 100 Quicktime tutorial videos and 40 Logic projects, and features music from pro producers Danny J. Lewis (Defected/Enzyme Blank), Mike Koglin (Noys), and Ben Medcalf (Rogue Element/Disco of Doom). They will demonstrate how to achieve a punchy professional mix that is guaranteed to detonate the dancefloor
Each week you can upload your projects and you will receive tailor-made, personalised video feedback from a professional producer on your music. On top of all this, you also get access to the student forums where you can share tips and advice, as well as a weekly web-chat with your tutor. The techniques covered can be applied to a wide range of electronic music genres.
