MIXING COMMERCIAL POP MUSIC

In this course, award-winning German producer Goetz Botzenhardt (The Pet Shop Boys, Faithless, Dido, the Sugababes, Sigala, Ella Eyre, Utada Hikaru) walks you step-by-step through his mixing process:

* Listen to the rough mix
* Song structure and where do you want to go with it
* Use a good mix template (Pro Tools project-file template provided)
* Sort all your parts into groups & colour-code everything
* Make sure everything is on time and in tune
* Mix your drums and achieve a good balance, check them on speakers and mono
* Work some more on your drums and bass – panning, EQ, compression
* Add in lead instruments one at a time
* Add the vocals – requires a lot of extra work and attention to detail
* Finally, work on the dynamics, special effects and rides

Goetz demonstrates the entire workflow using Pro Tools and a unique combination of racks, effects, bus’es, EQ, Compression, and Reverb. It’s applicable whether you’re using Pro-Tools or any other DAW.
