How To Create Quality Home Studio Mixes

Going from one track to another without a plan can quickly create a chaotic mixing situation.

You might start out doing levels, then switch to panning and then think about some distortion tips you want to try. Then all of a sudden you don’t know where your mix is going…

However, it’s easy to get a good mix going if you have a set idea of what you’re trying to accomplish.

The goal of mixing is to bring out the best of your rough recordings by adjusting levels, panning, EQ, compression, and effects. The aim is to create separation between your instruments and balance in your mix.

Instead of bouncing from one mixing idea to another, follow these tips here below, and you’ll be well on your way to that mix that’s in your head.
