    Mixing Techniques
    Hi Steve, really do appreciate the work you have done so far and I think this tips and tricks concept is also a fantastic idea. One thing I've alway wanted to know more about is mixing. It's always going to be down to the individual's ear when they are working on their own material but work flows are always appreciated. Templates, even down to the levels of individual channels to start off with before layering further. Levels to try and achieve before final mastering tweaking. Best ways of tuning the kick to the bass for maximum punch, achieveing power in the low end... If you are stem mixing, what kind of EQ and compression etc, is/ can be used. Drum programming is also a bit of a black art. Adding that touch of humanisation and the best ways of nudging notes here and there would also be an interesting topic to cover. And as a lot of other people have mentioned... more tips and tricks in the environment is always going to go down well! Once again, thanks for everything you and the MacProVideo team have done so far. Great work. Yours, John

    Hey John, Mixing is a topic that everybody wants to know more about... however, it's not Logic specific which takes it out of the realm of this forum. Now Logic has some very interesting techniques and tools to help organize a mix which I'd be happy to cover. Does that work?

    Re: Mixing Techniques
    Hi Steve, yeah I thought you might say something like that!... and you're perfectly right, mixing isn't logic, it's using logic.. but yes, the techniques and tools are still just as relevant so if you are able to squeeze anything about them in to a future tutorial that would be brilliant. Incidentally, if you know of any resources to help with mixing that you could point me to, that would be 110% hugely appreciated :) I've read mixing with your mind by Stav and that was def worth a read... but getting things to gel.. outside of feathering eq.. and retaining power down at the low end... all things that are quite hard to get right and if you don't know what you are doing, it feels like you're going round in circles! Thanks for your quick response. Cheers, John
