Copy the Original Mix

 

Trying to copy someone else's mix is a valuable training exercise. To do a good job you must first closely analyze what the original mix is doing with timbres, pans, levels, reverbs, compression, etc. and then try and recreate it in your DAW session. You will not be able to get a perfect match simply because the types of processing gear that was used on the original mix is not the same as what you have available, but you will get close.

 

Making your mix sound like the original is not easy. It takes a lot of listening. Listen to the original by soloing "original mix" track, and then un-solo and mute the original mix track and work on the new tracks until you think you have a sound that is similar to the original. Then go back to the original track and listen to it again. Then go back (again) to your mix and listen to it.

 

Here is a tip: Don't try and grasp the mix as a whole, instead focus on one instrument or group at a time and listen through the mix to those individual elements. Then go to your session and try and recreate that sound. It will take time, but you will be surprised how close you can get.
