Are you just getting into mixing music? If so, boy are you lucky you found this collection of awesome tutorials by DAW guru Russ Hughes, co founder of Pro-Tools-Expert.com! Russ helps those either new to mixing, or who just don't feel satisfied with their mixes by starting right at the beginning, looking at what mixing is, and what makes a good mix. Then Russ performs a full, in-depth "over the shoulder" mixing session, explaining it all as he goes.
This series, although shown in Pro Tools 10, will help anyone on any DAW craft and hone their mixes into much better, professional sounding tracks that you can be proud of, as the theories presented apply to any DAW.
Russ starts with a detailed introduction to mixing, shows you "shapes" of mixes, the anatomy of a mix and mix "house keeping" to better manage and increase your mixing workflow. Next Russ gets into using groups and editing your tracks to make them mix ready. Russ then focuses on main vocals and background vocals, showing you how to get that "big" vocal sound.
The instruments are next to be mixed, including acoustic guitars, piano and keyboards, bass, drums, electric guitars and more! Russ then dives into important final tweaks, using automation and adding "magic dust" on the master buss. The final mix is then performed and Russ shows you how to bounce it to disc, and or use other means to create your master stereo file to share with the world. Just when you think it's over, Russ has included a bonus video called "Cleaning Up Live Drums" for those who need how to do so.
At over 4 hours long this series is designed to give the viewer the solid basics of mixing. This is great for someone just starting out, or for those who wish to visit the basics again to see if they have missed anything important. Even though this series is shown in Pro Tools 10, you'll be able to use the practices and theories on your own mixes in any DAW. Don't wait any longer, move to the top of the class...

Not as expected
It flows good and very well explained but I do not feel I could learn a lot although I am a beginner.

Good info but...
The information is Good but the song being mixed is nauseating. I cant watch the video in it's entirety because of this,

Response from Customer Service:
I'm sorry you didn't like the tutorial. Although it is an older one, the techniques presented still hold true. The song itself was used because it was a song the author could get the licensing approved to use in this capacity. But the lessons are valuable regardless of the song being mixed.
Thank you for your support and check out some of the newer mix tutorials uploaded for even more info

This is a very informative course that provides a good perspective on the thought process and planning that is involved in the mixing of different tracks. Both instrumental and vocal tracks are covered along with the different audio techniques to enhance the tracks so that they sound good individually and together within the mix. For someone who is not a beginner, the course might simply cover things you already know. However, for a beginner, such as myself, it was great to see someone who is really good at his craft present this material.

Pretty good basics
Pretty good overview of basics. Just one thing I noticed, he seems to be describing the 1176 the wrong way around regarding the 1176 - the faster settings are the higher numbers, not the lower.

Good, not great
I suppose this is good for beginners. It is interesting to see his thought processes. However, he was a bit unorganized, and he dwelled on things too long. There was a lot of wasted time throughout this course...I don't want to see you searching for all the areas of the song that have toms in them, you should have done that prior to filming your lesson. This was average. Separately, why does Groove 3 ask redundant, irrelevant and generic questions after the end of every review?
