ADSR Sounds has released Mixing In Mono – Essential Skills, a video tutorial course by Echo Sound Works on mixing with your eyes and how to use metering plugins.
So much of what gets taught about mixing is focused on stereo, but as any professional mix engineer will tell you, it’s just as important to know how to mix in mono. The most obvious reason for this, is that there are a bunch of very likely situations in which your track will be played in mono – not least of which live playblack in a club.
It also makes more sense for specific elements of a track to be mixed in mono and there are a load of tricks and techniques using mono that you can apply to get the best sound out of your productions, whatever system they are played on.
Learning how to mix in mono should be on your critical skills list. In this course, Echo Sound Works will teach you how to create a mix that sounds good in mono and also how to improve the quality of your stereo mixes using mono referencing.
The course is available for purchase for $14.99 USD.
