First dates.

Sooooo awkward.

(Luckily I only had a handful of them before I met my wife. Jackpot.)

The first date can make or break the relationship.

If you mess up the first date, you’ve got a lot of ground to cover, homey.

It’s the same way with mixing.

Pulling up a mix and jumping straight to fancy plugins is like picking a girl up for your first date and going in for a kiss before you even get to dinner.

Easy there, cowboy.

There’s a crucial “first date” portion to every mix.

Skip it, and you’re destined to play lots of catch-up.

You’ve got to lay a good mix foundation, and it all starts with the simplest of things — the fader.

A good static mix can make a ginormous difference in the outcome of the mix.

To find out why (and how) and how I start EVERY mix this way, check out this week’s new VIP video.

It’s for members only.

And have a splendid weekend. 🙂
