    The Final Review (10:08)


World-class remixer extraordinaire Timothy Allan is back with a series that will reveal all there is to make a huge, modern sounding electronic dance track right in your DAW. He begins with his remix of the classic dance track "Fine Day" in raw, multi-track form, and mixes from the bottom up, showing you all of his trade secrets along the way.

Shown in Logic, but applicable to any DAW, Tim covers the basics first, such as organizing the session, setting up sidechains, aux tracks for effects and the master bus configuration. Next, he works the kick drum, then whips up a rough mix, and hones in on all the individual elements such as vocals, percussion, synths, bass, pads and strings. He then wraps it up with vocal and effect tweaks that make huge differences in the mix, special kick and bass compression, automation and more.

If you're striving for that "radio ready" sound and a mix that sounds huge in the clubs, this collection of video tutorials is a must see. After absorbing and applying Tim's techniques, your electronic music tracks will sound more professional and stand out in the sea of music productions.

So helpful!

I received so much out of this. Tim is a real pleasure to follow as he takes his raw stems and turns them into a polished mix. I learned a great deal about compression, eq, filtering, and creative use of effects. The sections on kick and bass, and getting them to sit nicely together, were especially useful. I will be purchasing this one for sure.

Classic Track! Awesome remix :D

Love his tutorial on mixing around the kick. I've been mixing for a little now and this tutorial has helped me with fitting drums into the right spots, getting the kick and bass to punch through my mix without all the mud and low end. It's nice to hear a progressive trance remix on here!

1. When did you start dabbling in music?

As a very young kid my parents signed me up for piano lessons. My mom said if I quit that I would regret it later on in life, but I thought piano lessons were boring! Electronic music was a natural progression for me from those early days, it let me combine my love of technology and all things nerdy with a love of loud and strange noises.

2. What training have you had?

I've had years and years of training from a good friend of mine named "The Internet", and before him my other good pal "Trial and Error". 

3. When did you get into recording?

The wonder of synthesis and certain electronic music is that you never really have to record anything if you don't want to! Although I do remember way back in the day recording found sounds on an old garage sale cassette recorder I bought, and using those samples in old school Trackers on the Apple II.

4. People you have worked with/for?

I've worked with, and for, a whole bunch of fantastic people so far. Some of the more popular ones include Empire of the Sun, Dirty South, Ash, Paul Oakenfold, Carl Kennedy, Hong Kong Blondes, Loverush UK, Molly Bancroft, Made by Monkeys, Tiff Lacey, Marcie, Offer Nissim and Kirsty Hawkshaw. Madonna chose a track I made for a compilation she released, although she never called or took me for lunch! That really doesn't count as 'working with' does it!?

5. Why are you so good at training people?

I'm good at training people because I remember what it was like to be the newbie, and I try and go over things that I would have found interesting and cool, back when I was starting out. I take the time to learn the techniques inside and out, and then break that down quickly for people.
