Kagi Media, producer of professional audio training products, announces Mix It Like A Record, a DVD/Pro Tools session–based mixing course taught by Grammy-winning engineer, mixer and producer Charles Dye.
In the course, Dye goes into the studio to teach users how to get “big sounding, record-quality mixes.” The user will learn how to effectively use the latest plug-ins and automation. The DVD features three hours of instruction and 40 Pro Tools TDM and LE sessions on the ROM layer.
Shot at Supersonic Studios in Miami, an ICON-based control room, the lessons dissect a mix channel by channel, plug-in by plug-in, and automation move by move, with Dye explaining the reasoning behind every tweak.
Using full screen interface shots detailing every mix decision, topics include: making the digital mix buss sound analog; getting great sounds on every instrument; adding dynamics and excitement with automation; lead vocal rides; and creating an ever evolving mix keeping the listener’s attention from first bar to last. Theory chapters include: what defines that “record” sound; keeping your mixing style fresh; using distortion to your advantage; and making magic happen.
Compatible with all systems (HD Accel, HD, MIX, LE and M-Powered), the sessions center on a great song, arrangement, recording and production. Also included are dedicated Sony and Waves sessions, session templates, and plug-in presets.
Mix It Like A Record provides numerous tips and techniques on plug-ins by Digidesign, DUY, Focusrite, iZotope, Line6, McDSP, Princeton Digital, Sony Oxford, SoundToys, TL Labs, Unique Recording Software (URS), Universal Audio and Waves.
