Title: Learning to Mix
Post by: Ginae on April 18, 2013, 11:40:30 PM
Please, is there a way to learn mixing sans going to an area school. There aren't any in the Fort Worth area that I've been able to find and I'm soon to begin graduate school.

Can one efficiently learn this online, for example?

Hello. I started making music at 14, and I'm 22 now. I would say that I am a pretty good mixer. All of my mixing knowledge was acquired online. Forums, YouTube, and did I mention YouTube? LOL! There are certain stations on YouTube that are dedicated to just uploading tutorials on how to mix different elements of a track. They are very informative. I learned most of what I know from YouTube. Once you get a stable understanding, you can really start to put some creativity into your songs, and just kind of do your own thing.

You can learn lots of tricks, recipes, techniques from youtube and forums, but the truth is that you have to listen to a looooooooot of DIFFERENT music, even the genres you hate, just to learn for real. As I was saying in another post, traing your ears, use lots of hearing equipment, compare your mixes. And spare a few bucks on a good amazon.com sound engineering / mixing / genre analysis ebooks.

There's a lot of mixing tutorial on YouTube these days. I happen to learn most of my mixing techniques online watching them on videos.

I agree with dibts, you can just check out YouTube these days for that. I also recommend getting an intern job in recording studios.
