Mixing and Production Techniques
Chuck Kawal Intermediate - Advanced
This series of classes will provide a more in-depth exploration into the art of mixing than would have been possible in classes that were more introductory in nature.
Although the class will continue to discuss and demonstrate a variety of mixing techniques and concepts, there will now be more emphasis placed on aesthetics, creativity, and quality of final results.
The class will begin by discussing some of the common goals all mixers should have regardless of genre, as well as the common problems and mistakes many mixers make regardless of longevity or previous experience.
The class would also enforce the fact that foundational mix concepts are universal and not dependent upon specific gear (plug-ins/DAWS). Great end results can be obtained from any platform as long as the mixer’s skill set is there.
Additionally, the students will work together with the instructor on numerous in-class mix projects to better demonstrate the above-mentioned techniques and concepts. They will also bring in projects of their own for instructor and peer student evaluations/feedback.
