Mixing Console Templates In Your DAW

Speed up your mixing workflow by setting up a console style template for your tracks.


5 Minutes To A Better Mix: Kick and Bass Sidechain

Part 11 of 31 – Are your kick drum and bass guitar fighting in the mix? This little trick might just help you get a bit of separation.


5 Minutes To A Better Mix: The Static Mix is back with their 5 minute mix series and I thought this was a great video to help show where you can take a mix starting with just simple volume balancing and panning.

Part 5 of 31 – Where you put the volume faders and pan pots at the beginning of the mixing process has tremendous influence on the sound of your final mix. Before you jump into processing, you want to create a great static mix.

If your tracks had to stay at only one volume and pan position for the entire mix, where would they be? This is the question you want to ask yourself as you begin the mixing process. Get the mix to sound solid with only volume and pan and you’ll be setting yourself up for success.
