When Olav Basoski divulges his mixing, remixing and mastering secrets, it's time for everybody to shut up and listen! That's because he has a golden discography that reads like a Who's Who of the international EDM scene! In this course you learn the mixing magic you need to know to put that same golden glimmer onto your Ableton Live (or any DAW) tracks. From the initial mix setup to advanced finalizing tips, this deep, 25-tutorial collection doesn't hold anything back!
It all starts with the initial setup where you learn about all the elements for constructing a 'pro' mix. Here you see how Olav has perfected the technique of mastering as you mix! Next you learn some of Olav's killer EQ techniques for the kick, beats, synths and more. After that comes the audiophile bible on compression. This is an area that Olav seems to understand better than just about anybody and he shares his insights with examples that'll change the way you think about applying compression!
Following the compression section, Olav dives deep into his toolbox and emerges with a handful of tutorials where you learn about the all-important spatial and special FX that give width and depth to a mix. As this course comes to a close be ready to absorb some major tips and tricks on automation and finalization. So sit back and get ready to take notes because we're sure that you'll want to incorporate many of Maestro Olav's techniques into your own productions!
Awesome course by Olav! Incredible way of transmitting his knowledge in a simple manner. Easy to listen and learn from him, he explains the whole art of mastering a track in a highly educational way which definitely makes learning not only easy but fun. I really enjoyed this course from beginning to the end.

After taking the first 3 Live 9 courses, this feels like one of the final pieces of the production puzzle with this DAW.

Great great overview of what seems to be more or less a fool proof formula. With these universal tips, any bedroom producer with no formal training can up their game dramatically.

Nothing is every prefect.
I really like Olav, he's easy to listen to and maintains my interest. I will watch this one more than once just to soak in the subtle things you get from watching someone show you something!

Just did this course.
This is just sick.
I just learned so much in 2 hours working well actually 3 with beers and going to the restroom.
But my tracks going to sound so much more cleaner just loved it.
Thank you for this i just can not express in words how happy i am with this

Olav really has a way of explaining things clearly - this course has everything I was looking for, and he clearly demonstrated the how's and why's of the most common production techniques. Although he uses Ableton Live 9, it doesn't matter what DAW you're using, because of the way he explains the purpose of each effect - the plug-ins will vary from DAW to DAW, but the principle remains the same.

It's amazing how after a few years of doing this, you can still always learn new things to use. Excellent, though this tutorial mainly just addresses mixing and not so much the mastering side of things. Still very educational.

Another eye-opening course from Olav. As a long time Logic user i am still finding my feet with Live 9 (though i still use both) and Olav's 'hands-on' track making approach and relaxed teaching style are definitely pushing me in the right direction - even though he is still the King of Parameter Tweaking !! Excellent use of the inbuilt plug-ins - especially EQ and Dynamics - proving you really don't need everything 'Waves' have ever released to make your track sound "Pro".
Next course idea for you Olav; How to make a Million Selling Dance Choon'. For real. As the kids say these days. ;-) (With apologies for the abuse of the English language.)
