Mixing music is an art form. Just as important as the art of your music, how you present it to your fans affects their experience.
Some Mixing Engineers have a very strict process they follow when they mix, and others start with the main instrument. Some start with the drums, others start with the vocal.
Finding your “Inner Mixing Engineer” is a process that starts with doing it over and over, just like you would practice the song your mixing.
With just a few simple things to remember, you will be well on your way to mixing stellar soundscapes your fans will love you for.
