Pro Tools has long been the mixing standard. They got there first and built very solid software and hardware solutions (fueled in large part by those ubiquitous Waves plugins). But that was then. See why Apple's Logic Pro software is now a powerful force in the world of music production AND mixing.

The course begins by looking at doing some prep work to get the song ready for mixing. Then Joshua demonstrates how to mix the lead and backing vocals, and how to process them using Logic's vintage EQ and compressors. You learn to give each element (guitars, bass, synths, drums, FX...) its own space, and get everything to sit perfectly in the mix.

The power of mid-side!

You discover mid-side processing techniques to achieve a wider mix while keeping mono compatibility. You learn to place sounds upfront, behind you and even high or low.

But that's not all... towards the end of the course, Joshua talks about mastering, revealing tips to help you master your project, either with Logic's stock plugins, or even with external hardware processors.

If you're mixing music with Logic (or thinking about it) this course is a must view. Join Joshua Carney in this advanced mixing course, and learn pro-tips and techniques and new innovative mixing ideas for your next projects!
