Finally Mixing My Music The Right Way

After more than a decade of making music, I am finally taking more time with the mixing process.

I'm sure there is a RIGHT way to mix music, but I'm an artist who prefers to spend my time creating the music (composing, arranging, performing), rather than mixing.

The Right Way To Mix Music

I still don't think there is a single, "right" way to mix music. This is art. There are creative ways to do everything.

Of course, I mean no disrespect to the people who do this (mixing and mastering music - sound engineers) for a living.

There are some guidelines I follow.

Also, since I have been using Propellerhead Reason since 1999, there are a lot of songs I am revisiting just to update the tracking with the mixer (that was not in Reason 1.0).

All of this is time-consuming, but I am learning a great deal. Yes, I would rather pass this off to someone else, but I can;t afford the engineer and my raw song filesneed cleanup before I could even pass them off to anyone.

So, yeah, this is what I will be doing everyday.

What's good fam ? Yo I replied about that track earlier "When Im Gone". Man I need that joint super bad. I kept listening to it over and over and I already got a song wrote for it. Its about my grandmother that died while I was holding her hand and how I was rebellious but she continued to pray for me and I didn't give my life to Christ until after she passed. Man its mad emotional I was crying while I wrote it. Please get back at me fam. Grace and Peace - Ricon
