Here are a couple of concepts that will dramatically improve your mixing during and before the mixing stage. Please bare in mind that these are concepts; You ought to read up on the basics of using an equalizer  before randomly tweaking an EQ and assuming you’re “doing it right”. I decided to focus on concepts since there are already countless articles online on how to properly use an Eq.

What’s the first thing that comes to your mind before reaching out for an EQ? It’s actually a really tough question because of the variables involved. Common reasons are overall muddiness; which has the effect of a blanket over your monitors. Another common reason is taming certain frequencies that are too prominent at that moment in time. I say moment in time because your music is always moving; i hope. If your music isn’t moving; it could mean your mix is lacking clarity, punch and ultimately translation.

I’ll talk about concepts that apply to any Eq, on any DAW. The first concept is figuring out the key of the song you’re mixing. What?! That’s right, the key of your song.

They key of your song will determine what frequencies that you’ll hear most often in your mix. Professional mix engineers know this. For instance, if your song is in the key of C Major (easy example); you’ll want to focus on the frequencies of all the notes in that particular key. For example, in the key of C Major (C,D,E,F,G,A & B),  middle C= 261.63 hz, middle D= 293.66 hz, and so forth. To determine the octave of your note, simply multiply or divide your note (C) by 2. Here’s a reference chart.

By understand and using this concept, you’ll take a lot of the guesswork out of fixing problematic frequencies in your mix; fast! If you hear a problematic “frequency”, figure out the note and find that frequency!

Second concept is overall tonal quality.  In my opinion, this simple but difficult concept will only get better with time and experience. Everyone hears the same thing differently. Something that might sound overly bright to someone, might sound fine to another. Finding that equilibrium is what makes a mix engineer special.

So how does one find that “perfect” balance in the mix? I don’t really have an answer for that because of the many distinctions that make something “good” or “bad.” I will say that genre and taste are a good start. Understanding the genre you’re mixing in and working around that.

Remember, your audience doesn’t care if you mixed your song in the bathroom or in a multi-million dollar studio. They’ll either bop their heads along, or hit the next button! I hope this has help you in some way. Please share it if you think it could help others! Here are some links on actually using an EQ that I think are good.

Recording technology has never been more exciting and accessible. What You can do with a laptop, some monitors, an interface and plugins is amazing today! The only caveat is that you have to know what you’re doing. Cheaper and faster technology is great, but watch out for the pitfalls that many amateurs and enthusiasts fall into.

Say what? Plugins? In essence, someone could be handed a race car and potentially wreck it if they didn’t know how to operate it properly. Bad analogy aside, you get the idea; it’s the driver! More often than not, people look to plugins to make up for lackluster recording and mixes. I’m here to tell you that it’s not the plugins in the first place. It has a lot more to do with knowing what you want and going after it. If you don’t know what you kind of sound you’re going for, you ought to figure that out first!

All DAWs (Digital Audio Workstation) come with a built-in suite of basic plugins such as Eq, compression, delay, reverb and limiting more or less. These are base essentials, but they are just that. I would suggest to anyone starting out to really learn what an Eq is before going out and purchasing the next hot thing. If you don’t know what compression thresholds and ratios are, those are basic concepts that everyone should know before turning any knobs.

What ultimately matters is the end result or the idea you’re trying to get across sonically. I would view plugins as enhancers to something that you’re already satisfied with. Of course you can use a plugin however you’d like; some use plugins to simply add character to a sound they’re already satisfied with. The crazy thing is, a lot of professionals today still use old plugins that they know well. They know what’s up!

Here are some additional resources if you want to learn more about the basics of audio, mixing, etc. Learn the basics and you’ll achieve great heights. Good luck.

Why gain staging is crucial in digital mixing.

Proper gain staging is crucial in achieving the best headroom levels for both analog and digital mixing.

Gain staging is important, especially in the digital world because it’s irreversible. In the analog realm; as long one doesn’t hear the distortion or clipping; you’re good as long the distortion is intentional. In the digital realm, clipping can cause serious issues down the line such as plugin processing and dithering, which end up on the final master. Depending on circumstances, distortion may or may not be desirable.

In the early days of recording, engineers would really crank the preamps to get a good sound to noise ratio because tape is very hiss-y. Technology has come a very long way. Signal to noise ratios are very good. Without getting into technical details; it basically means you can record at a much lower volume and retain sonic integrity when that volume or signal is amplified digitally.It’s a good rule of thumb to to keep your input meters fairly low on all your tracks when recording digitally. The reason why digitally recorded tracks don’t sound as good as analog is because analog is actually a lot more forgiving if you’re not an “engineer” or don’t know exactly what you’re doing when you’re recording. Likewise, if you know what you’re doing digitally, you can achieve amazing results mixing in the box (ITB).

One last thing that I would like to mention is headroom. A lot of mix engineers who are in the box often get this wrong. Thus they’re left with a mix that has very little dynamics and punch (lifeless). The difference in levels of dynamics is what gives you that effect. One mistake I’ve seen a lot is engineers turning up the DAW fader instead of turning up their monitor mains.

Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry’s standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum.

It is a long established fact that a reader will be distracted by the readable content of a page when looking at its layout. The point of using Lorem Ipsum is that it has a more-or-less normal distribution of letters, as opposed to using ‘Content here, content here’, making it look like readable English. Many desktop publishing packages and web page editors now use Lorem Ipsum as their default model text, and a search for ‘lorem ipsum’ will uncover many web sites still in their infancy. Various versions have evolved over the years, sometimes by accident, sometimes on purpose (injected humour and the like)

Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry’s standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book.

Contrary to popular belief, Lorem Ipsum is not simply random text. It has roots in a piece of classical Latin literature from 45 BC, making it over 2000 years old. Richard McClintock, a Latin professor at Hampden-Sydney College in Virginia, looked up one of the more obscure Latin words, consectetur, from a Lorem Ipsum passage, and going through the cites of the word in classical literature, discovered the undoubtable source.

Lorem Ipsum comes from sections 1.10.32 and 1.10.33 of “de Finibus Bonorum et Malorum” (The Extremes of Good and Evil) by Cicero, written in 45 BC. This book is a treatise on the theory of ethics, very popular during the Renaissance. The first line of Lorem Ipsum, “Lorem ipsum dolor”, comes from a line in section 1.10.32.

There are many variations of passages of Lorem Ipsum available, but the majority have suffered alteration in some form, by injected humour, or randomised words which don’t look even slightly believable. If you are going to use a passage of Lorem Ipsum, you need to be sure there isn’t anything embarrassing hidden in the middle of text. All the Lorem Ipsum generators on the Internet tend to repeat predefined chunks as necessary, making this the first true generator on the Internet. It uses a dictionary of over 200 Latin words, combined with a handful of sentence structures, to generate Lorem Ipsum which looks reasonable.
