Producer's Instructions on Mixing

 

 

1. Make a 'Stereo' mix. (Be sure to do your panning on the correct mixing layer.) Although some instruments may be more prominently featured than others, make sure any instruments you  use in the mix are 'Clear'. They should each have their 'Own Space' in the mix in terms of frequency, left-right panorama, and foreground/background space.

 

 

2. Use at least some of the 'Effects' (reverb, delay, modulation effects) in ways that enhance the mix.

 

 

3. Use the technology tastefully. Pretend your song will be on the radio. Do not use effects gratuitously (= don't use them for your own amusement or to show off that you know how to do something). Make sure that what you're doing makes sense for the song.

 

 

4. Mix your song down to stereo. Do a real-time mix making all your fader and effects moves as the song is going down to the stereo bus.

 

 

After you finish mixing, Answer the following questions:

 

1) What type of audience/genre did you mix for?

<example>

- Open place with 20 ~ 30 people in a small yard.

- Folk music. Easy listening, light music.

 

 

2) If you worked with a partner, on what issues, if any, did you have to compromise on to please both engineers?

<example>

- Worked EQ'ing and Panning together.

- We worked well together so not much to compromise on.
