How To Use One Single Mix Technique to Add That Final 10% Your Mixes are Missing
If you’re anything like my 1-on-1 mix coaching students, your mixes are already pretty decent.
You understand how to create a rough balance, add some separation between the instruments with EQ, add punch and dynamics with compression and create depth with effects.
Even so, with the basics of mixing down, you might feel like your mixes lack that extra 10% they need to compete with the professional mixes you hear on streaming services like Spotify – or on the radio. Whenever you play your mix next to commercial records, it just doesn’t sound right.
There’s something missing and for some reason, you can’t seem to figure out why.
The good news is, there’s one advanced technique most people fail to use successfully – which can completely transform the quality of their mixes. I’ve seen this with my mix-coaching students because whenever I demonstrate how to use it, it completely blows their minds.
They finally feel like they’ve got the last piece of the mixing puzzle. The missing piece that’s been holding back their mixes all this time. A whole new world opens up to them and they finally understand how to make their mixes sound competitive next to their favorite productions.
This technique is Parallel Processing and this week I’ve put together a crash course in everything you need to know to transform your mixes with parallel processing.
Honestly, it’s a technique I’ve been using forever and I didn’t realize people didn’t know how to use it effectively. After seeing the difference it’s made for my students I simply had to share these techniques with you.
I’ve already made the masterclass available for my Mixing With 5 Plug-ins students inside the MW5P community, but for this week only, I’m making the Parallel Processing Masterclass available as a standalone package, without becoming a Mixing With 5 Plug-ins member.
Come Friday, it’ll become one more free bonus for the MW5P students, but until then you can grab it here.
