Sonic Academy proudly welcomes back mau5trap's Dom Kane this week with an in-depth look and masterclass in mixing down his track 'Voices In My Head' taken from the massive mau5trap compilation 'We Are Friends Vol. 08'
Starting with the original project file he exports the stems into a completely different workstation - Harrison Mixbus so he can focus solely on the mixdown, without being tempted to alter any of the elements and discards his 'producer head' entirely.
Throughout this course, Dom works methodically tweaking the different channels with EQ and compression and removing unnecessary frequencies without affecting the quality or energy of the track that could push sound systems in a detrimental way.
Lastly, he checks the stereo spread of the track before making any final tweaks to complete a perfect mix to move on to the mastering stage.
Filled with tips, tricks and ways of thinking that differ greatly from the production side of creating a successful track, this is a course not to be missed!
