â€œOne of the most important things in mixing is to keep the interest of the listener. If the song doesnâ€™t grab you in the beginning youâ€™re kind of done with it. So itâ€™s important to keep the interest,â€ states Ulrich Wild, a Grammy nominated producer and engineer specializing in metal rock. Wild has collaborated with Promix Academy Founder Warren Huart (who is also a producer/engineer, owner of Spitfire Studios and theÂ YouTube channel Produce Like a Pro) to release a new Promix Academy course.
In addition to his work as a producer and engineer, Huart aims to help people make great music by sharing the knowledge and experience heâ€™s accumulated over his near 30 years in the industry throughÂ Produce Like a ProÂ andÂ ProMix Academy. Huart explains: â€œI want to demystify the recording process and show that there really isnâ€™t a difference between the â€˜professionalsâ€™ and home recordists. We all share the same passion for music creation and our aim is to break down barriers and democratize the music industry.â€
In this lesson, Wild takes the student further into the fundamentals of mixing by providing an in-depth experience from working on Brendon Smallâ€™s Glaktikon track titled â€œTritonâ€. This educational mixing course goes even beyond just a tutorial, as it includes multiple insider stories and recording/production insights that someone could only acquire from the experience that Wild and Small share. The process may deem tedious in the beginning, but once the challenge of â€œfinding space in the mixâ€ is conquered, a finished track is a rewarding and satisfying treat.
This is not the first time that Wild has teamed up with Small, the two have been working together since Dethklokâ€™s debut album The Deathalbum in 2007.
