As you probably know, I’ve begun mixing my latest album. Everything was recorded in my home studio, and I plan to mix the entire thing in my home studio as well.
You may be asking yourself, “Okay, so what’s in it for me?” Well, the closer I got to mixing this record, the more I realized this would be a great teaching/learning experience for the HSC crowd.
Mark Your Calendars
On Monday, March 29, 2010, I will be launching a brand new website. It will be a members-only site, where you’ll get a behind-the-scenes look at how I mix my album.
If you’ve ever wanted to “sit in” on a mixing session and see how somebody else goes about mixing an entire record, then you’ll want to be a part of this.
I’ll be posting in-depth videos, ranging from 1-2 hours in length, where I show you all the steps I took to mix each song.
Not only that, I’ll be providing the full, 24-bit multi-track audio files of each song! You can download them, import them into your DAW, and “follow along” at home.
The album is 10 songs, so we’ll be going over one song per week for 10 weeks.
In addition to the videos and multi-tracks, I also have several bonuses planned for members. I’ll tell you more about them later.
I am so excited about this. I hope you’re as excited as I am. This is going to be a BLAST.
This mixing course won’t be free, but I think you’ll like the price. You’ll be getting a bucket-load of value out of it.
What’s my music like?
Obviously, you’ll want to know what kind of music/tracks you’ll be downloading and mixing. You’ve probably heard some of them here on HSC. It’s mainly acoustic guitar-based rock. The production ranges from acoustic/vocal only on one song to a full out rock arrangement on several more. You’ll get some pretty versatile content to work.
To kick things off, I’ll be doing a free live streaming concert on UStream this Saturday, March 27, at 5 pm CST. It’ll be an acoustic set of all 10 songs, and I’ll be recording the whole thing.
Here’s the link to the show:
So, to review: the concert is this Saturday at 5pm CST, and the mixing course will be opening on Monday. (I’ll give you the URL at a later date.
