LYNDA Mixing Techniques for Pop Music Part 1 TUTORIAL-kEISO
Interested in producing the next chart-topping pop song? Or simply using classic pop techniques to blend the many different elements of today's modern multitrack recording sessions into one seamless song? In this course, multi-platinum producer, engineer, and mixer Brian Malouf demonstrates his hit-making mixing techniques. These lessons can be used on pop, jazz, country, folk, or any other recordings you want to turn into solid two-track stereo mixes.

Brian starts with the basics of creating a mix template and getting a good raw balance of the instruments in the mix. He then dives deep into signal processing techniques on many types of instruments, including drums, bass, guitar, keys, vocals, percussion, strings, and brass. He'll pick out and treat individual tracks with compression and EQ, add space with reverb and echo, and modulate the sound with flangers and phase shifters. Pro Tools is used throughout the course, but the techniques will work equally well with the DAW of your choice.
Topics include:

Customizing a mix template
Understanding the interplay of volume, panning, EQ, and dynamics
Processing drums
Processing lead and background vocals
Gain processing
Treating the bass guitar and synth guitar
Placing piano in the mix
Treating strings and brass

Delay is quite possibly the most used, yet misunderstood creative tool in the mixing engineer’s arsenal. Every major record you’ve heard in the past 40-60 years has had some instance of delay on it. Beginning at an explanation of the brief history of Delay along with some basic functions, all the way to advanced techniques as well as a primer of the physics behind the tool, in this class you’ll learn everything you need to know about the Delay tool!

We’ll be focusing on common applications of the Delay tool, found in contemporary music, as well as some techniques to help simulate a vintage sound in your mix! We’ll also go through how to setup your Delay on any instrument and explain why the order of operation is important. We’ll spend the majority of this course examining techniques, since this is an application dependent tool, but we’ll also touch on some effects like Flangers and Choruses, that can be made using a Delay tool with some post-processing.

In this class you'll learn...
Digital Delay use. Analog Delay functionality. Creating depth in a 2-Dimensional plane. Simulating a doubled track. Different models of Delay. Physics of Sound Waves. Differentiation of Reverb and Delay. How to setup Delay.

What to listen for when using a Delay on:
Drums. Guitars (lead and rhythm). Piano. Vocals (lead, backgrounds, harmonies).

You’ll also learn advanced techniques like…
Throwing Delay using Automation. Artificial Stereo Spread. Acoustic environment simulation. Embellishment of an element within a mix.

What are the requirements?

It’s every producer and mix engineer’s worse nightmare – you’ve got a stunning vocal and the perfect lead mixed into a killer drop. It’s all coming along great but then there’s that super sad kick that sucks all the energy out of the dancefloor…

It’s time to wake up and learn to make the kind of music you dream about. Get some fresh perspectives on how to mix for the kick with this 8-part video course presented by Echo Sound Works.

In just over an hour you will learn to manipulate the various elements of your track to energize the kick and allow it to drive your track.

Fundamentals
PART 1 – Introduction - This video briefly covers the course topics.
PART 2 – Mixing Philosophy - This video talks about classic mixing engineer’s philosophy and how it can apply in the modern digital age.
PART 3 – Defining The Low End - In this section, we look at how to define the low end of your mix in regards to the kick and the bass and how they affect each other.
PART 4 – Gain Staging The Kick - This video will discuss how to properly gain stage your kick with both peak and RMS levels.

Making the Kick King
PART 5 – Panning Around Center - It might sound weird, but the whole reason we pan things is to strengthen the center of our mixes. When you think like this, you can use panning to improve the quality of your kick.
PART 6 – Envelope Shaping - This video offers some really unique uses for Envelope shaping.
PART 7 – Offsetting Values - A fairly basic technique, but when used in the right context it can be a powerful way of opening up the mix for the kick.
PART 8 – Ducking & Side Chaining - Saved the best for last, these two techniques can be used in almost every song you work on to help make the kick bigger and punchier.

A comprehensive and detailed look at how you can mix and master your own electronic music.

We will be mixing and mastering a track from start to finish in this course.

You will get an in-depth, real world view of exactly how to mix and master your own music.

You will learn the art and science behind various types of compression (regular compression, sidechain compression, multiband compression) and some recommended settings that can be used depending on the type of sound you are treating with compression.

You will also learn about various types of EQ treatment, such as regular parametric EQ and Mid-Side EQ. You will learn about how to EQ a wide range of sounds including different drums and percussion (kicks, snares, etc.), different bass sounds, melodic instruments and FX.

You will learn how to use saturation and distortion to add extra harmonics to certain sounds in your mix to make them sound fuller or stand out more above the other instruments.

You will learn how to mix a complex track that consists of more than 10 different bass sounds and more than 10 different drums tracks.

You will see how we can group tracks together and process an entire group of tracks at once.

You will learn how to work with reference tracks to compare your own work with.

You will also learn how to build your own mastering chain and how to master your track so that it will stand up against other professionally produced tracks on the dancefloor.

The style of music produced in this course could be called dubstep, although it features many influences from ambient electronica and drum and bass, especially neuro or neurofunk style drum and bass.

Despite the track being a specific type of electronic music, you will be able to apply all of the mixing and mastering techniques you learn in this course to other genres of electronic music, such as electro house, techno, glitch hop, trip hop, mid tempo music and many other styles.

The Digital Audio Workstation (DAW) used in this course is Ableton Live, but if you use a different DAW, and you're comfortable with producing music in it, you can apply all of the techniques in your DAW of choice.

Along with full access to all of the video tutorials, you will be able to download the Ableton Live project file used in this course to take a close look at each of the tracks and see exactly how the song was mixed.

This course provides hands-on experience in producing, mixing, and sound design with a digital audio workstation. Students will learn the fundamentals (physics) of sound and digital audio, proper gain staging, where and how distortion enters recordings and mixes, how to set levels and panning, effective sub group mixing, and an introduction to signal processing such as equalization, compression, delay, and reverb. In addition to core audio and mixing concepts, students will learn various production techniques, such as sequencing, arranging, automation, using virtual instruments (e.g. synths, samplers, and drum machine plugins), working with MIDI, plugin formats such as VST/Audio-Units, and mapping digital USB controllers for the studio and live performance.

The material covered in this course will range from the foundations of producing music and sound design, to more advanced topics such as Ableton "racks" (Audio Effect Racks, MIDI Effect Racks, Instrument Racks, and Drum Racks), multi-band effects processing, advanced modulation, warping, time-stretching, and mangling audio, as well as taking advantage of Live's audio analysis tools for extracting grooves, melody, harmony, and drums from recorded sound.
