The producer works urban pop dominated by a melodic trap half romantic half criminal.
Open-Class: Mixtering under the 3db`s rule
Date: Monday, March 20th -> 17h
During the masterclass, I would like to share my personal method for Mixtering (mixing + mastering) under what I call the “3db’s rule“. This workaround to face a mix is not only useful in sessions where you have to deliver the best result in the shortest time possible, but it is also a very useful rule to avoid wasting time when facing a new mix.
In times of streaming music where LUFS metering has left RMS behind, it is best to think in simple methods where what matters is to exploit the mix rather than to squeeze a master. That mixed with the increased processing makes Mixtering one of the most optimal ways to finish a project in the shortest possible time.
This methodology is especially useful when working with very tight budgets that prevent dedicating as much time as desired to a production. Something very, very common.
