Mixing With Ableton Live


Welcome to the Mixing With Ableton Live!

This course is “5-Star Certified” by the International Association of Online Music Educators and Institutions (IAOMEI). This course has been independently reviewed by a panel of experts and has received a stellar 5-star rating.

This class is for anyone who has made or recorded music and wondered why their tracks don’t sound like the tracks they hear on the radio, Spotify, SoundCloud, or anywhere else. This is the missing link in your production workflow.

In this class, we start with the very basics of mixing and work all the way up to finishing great tracks. I walk you through every step of the process and explain the logic behind every decision I make. I’ll even walk you through a complete mix from beginning to end.

The goal of this class is for you to learn how to take your tracks from good to great.

100% Answer Rate! Every single question posted to this class is answered within 24 hours by the instructor.

As a special addition, I’ve included some extra resources in this class to help give you multiple perspectives on mixing. Mixing is, after all, an art. Throughout the class, I’ll be giving you articles, extra content, and resources from some friends of mine to help with a wider mixing philosophy.

I’ll be using Ableton Live Suite 10 in this course. If you are using any version of Ableton Live, you should be able to follow along just fine.

I’m best known for working with electronic music, but I’ve designed this course to be as inclusive as possible when it comes to genre. We will talk about mixing techniques for all instruments, sounds, and styles. All genres are welcome here!
