Mixing A Techno Track From To Finish Using State-of-the-Art Plugins

  1. We asked our friend and professional Mixing Engineer Guido Werner to take our template “Desert” and perform a professional mixing and mastering on it.
  2. We granted him the freedom to use all his favorite Vst Plugins for this purpose.
  3. We only had one condition: Record, explain and comment on everything you do while working on this project - and that’s exactly what he did.
  4. Now you have the chance to join in and look over his shoulder - this class is fire!

This course is set up so that you learn how to mix your own production from A to Z. The project has one goal and that is to make an in the box mix using an analogue approach to glue together with minimal effort. This minimalistic approach is taught by Guido Werner from Catandbeats and MixMasterYou. He will teach you all about different types of compressors, when to use which, how to listen, how to setup a file that practically mixes itself, reverbs, delays and the mastering process. If you ever wanted to sit next to an engineer while he does his thing this is it.
