    Mastering tutorial is great but what about for general mixing?
    I bought the Cubase mastering tutorial and it's great but at the same time it's sort of like bringing the cart before the horse. Now I'm all set up to master a turd. Should could use a general guidance mixing tutorial that covers common practices and eq frequencies, vst instruments,guitars ing a mix up for mastering etc. A Great master begins with a great mix so how about a great mix tutorial? Thanks!

    Hi, I would say mostly pop,rock,r&b hip hop,progressive rock. I bought a couple of mixing tutorials from groove3 where they take a song and break it down and tell you what they did. I was hoping for more of general mixing theory type thing with not just what they did according to their taste but why they do it according to their knowledge of basic mixing theory that can generally apply to all music like most commonly used eq,compression settings of various instruments and general relative volumes in a mix etc etc Thanks dblock

    Hey Mixing is a science... and is also an art. Some of the most famous Mixing engineers / Producers use a fine balance between the two... so I do think the existing mixing tuts combine the 'What we did' with the 'Why we're doing it and what it'll do to the sound' approach. I'd really recommend checking out all the Logic and Pro Tools mixing series we offer here at macProVideo. For example, I learned a lot from Olav Basoski's Mixing Electronica tutorial - which I use in all genres of music. r&b and hip hop: [url]http://www.macprovideo.com/tutorial/logic9403[/url] Electronica: [url]http://www.macprovideo.com/tutorial/logic9404[/url] More Electronica & compression etc tips: [url]http://www.macprovideo.com/tutorial/logic406[/url] Pop in Pro Tools (but principles remain the same!): [url]http://www.macprovideo.com/tutorial/protools402[/url] Hope that helps Rounik
