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.

Taurus you are so talented. You can really tell that there is emotion behind your music and that it's is not just some notes put together. I appreciate your art. Its a beautiful picture.

Taurus - ur stuff is the *ting* man i'm tellin ya. I also learned that your a drummer - me to! When I was a kid I used to play around with the piano/keyboard in the 80's/90's (26yr old now). But I can't read music - I play by ear, just like you. You hit the pads & keys, (i gotta mpd32 to!;) in the same manner as me - it flows. I reckon we can play steel drums - even tho we never have! or maybe you have - i don't know! I'm luvin your youtube flix - keep em comin dood. Peace bruv Andy D, birmingham UK.
