The box: mixing made simpler

Time and time again I’ve been asked to write a piece on mixing. Quite frankly, I’m not comfortable writing about things that I’m not comfortable answering questions about.

With that said, I work very closely with a mixing genius. He is a complete perfectionist and it comes right through in his music. Jlawless has been behind the mixing of some pretty big hip hop songs as well as his own original music. His mixing techniques led to the crisp sound you hear on the RevelationEP we released a little earlier this year.

J pushed this link to me concerning mixing. It explains the principles you need to keep in mind while mixing your music by using a very handy visual. Notice how I say you need to keep it in mind. Mixing is a conscious process, not a cake mix recipe. Have a read through it and see if it helps.
