I am a musician but need to improve my mixing skills to create better sounding rough mixes and demo tracks. Having read Owsinski's book, I liked your approach which is similar, i.e. giving specific examples and explaining useful techniques rather than just explaining theory. That is in my view the greatest challenge when it comes to mixing anyway. Every track and instrument is different, so it is very difficult to give advice which may apply to various circumstances. But I think you definitely achieved that!
I've worked in live sound doing huge concerts back home in my native Iceland (that's where the name is from), recorded bands in Madrid, Spain (where I went to audio engineering school) and now I produce, record and mix local bands in Tucson, Arizona (I get around a lot...).
Through these diverse experiences I've grown to learn one thing:
I've taught thousands of up and coming home studio producers such as yourself how to make an impact with their music through Audio Issues since 2011.
If I can help somebody improve the sound of their music and that helps them get extra fans and exposure I think I've done a great job.
I believe in sharing my knowledge with everyone and through Audio Issues I've been able to do that. I might not have won any Grammys but I enjoy being the person that inspires others to make great music while aspiring to learn as much as there is to know (and pay forward!).
That's what I'm all about. I've learned a lot from working in the industry since 2006 and I hope my knowledge can become your shortcut to taking your mixes to the next level.
That's what the Quick Mixing Checklist is. A list of things I know will help you get a better mix in no time.
Let me know what you think!
