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.
