The Art of Mixing
« on: June 24, 2021, 05:17:48 am »
A 3D visual approach to audio mixing

I know very little about mixing and I don't record. I recently helped a good friend set up some simple home recording gear . We spent a day installing an audio interface, a free fully featured  DAW (Cakewalk) and learnt how to do some simple record and editing (thank you youtube).

So that piqued my interest in mixing but I had no idea where to start.  I ran across the video below. It's fantastic.  Dave Gibson explains how to mix songs using a visual approach.   In just over 2.5 hours he slowly and expertly introduces and explains his ideas on how to fill the musical "space between the speakers" using a visual approach. It also provides a framework that allows one to discuss and compare different mixes.

There are many on the forum who record and mix there own songs. I hope you find the following video informative and helpful.

Hi Matt

Watched the intro explaining what would be covered and it all looks very interesting, so will grab a beer and take it to the big screen and a comfy chair ! I'll let you know what I think but it could take a few days to digest !

Thanks for sharing, Matt.

I've watched the first 30 minutes. I've found it interesting, engaging, though I think I'd prefer it without some of the more quirky video effects and clips, find those a bit distracting without real value. Look forward to seeing how it progresses.
