Do you want to create world-class Electronic Dance Music – with the equipment you already own?
ARE YOU HAPPY WITH THE QUALITY OF YOUR MIXES?
Do you try and squeeze everything in around that fat Serum lead synth, or mix everything around that punchy Cymatics kick drum you’ve spend ages compressing and equalising?
How loud should they be? How much reverb should you use? Why does your mix sound muddy?
The chances are, you can hear there’s a lot of room for improvement in terms of getting your music sounding as clear, crisp, wide, fat and loud as your favourite producers.
