Same Song, Different Mix Style

 

You will be using the same song but you will have to think about it in terms of a different style of mix. This is great practice for the real world where you might be asked to deliver musical product for multiple styles. The example guidelines about how to approach each style of mix are as follows:

 

 

Pop (Radio) Mix

1. There should be lots of sonic contrast and separation.

2. The mix should be bright, but warm.

3. Keep the vocal(s) on the "dry" side and keep it "in your face".

4. Remember the somewhat narrow dynamic range of broadcast radio.

 

Club Mix

1. Lots of drama here. Build your song to a dynamic climax.

2. You want a hard and fat rhythm section so people don't lose the beat.

3. Feel free to add techno-ish overtones with a house flava.

4. Make me move.

 

Alternative Mix

1. This has got to have a fat, warm bottom end.

2. Make sure the bass and kick combo is clear.

3. You want that "big" snare sound.

4. Go for lots of depth but with the vocals out front.

 

Psychedelic Mix

1. Move your sounds around. Get lots of motion and depth in the mix.

2. Go for syrupy, drippy vocals.

3. Create a "wall of sound" on the bottom end.

4. Don't make the mix too bright. You want warm and airy.
