Watch professional producer and mixer Brian Lee White at work in his element, as he assembles a fully mixed hip-hop track from raw stems. This advanced course gives you a peek over Brian's shoulder as he moves sequentially through the mixing process in Pro Tools. He begins by adjusting the basic level and pan settings while establishing a strong percussive foundation with the drums and bass. He then works through the vocals, featuring rapper K-I-D and vocalist Jonathan President, and individually builds up the verses, hooks, and background tracks with EQ, compression, reverb, delay, and additional effects. Working the mix to add drama and build excitement, Brian optimizes levels using automation. In the last step, Brian fine-tunes the master bus effects, prints the stereo mix, and reviews the final master.

The core goal of this course is to give you a first-hand look at the real-time thought process that takes place during mixing. Well, I will describe many of the steps I take to achieve the final mix. This course is not intended to be a primer on Pro Tools or the Basic Signal Processing used during the Mix process. If you're still confused about topics such as Equalization, Dynamics, Processors, or the Pro Tools Mixer, I highly encourage you to watch the following courses on the online training library, before watching this course.
I will be mixing the session in real time using headphones, so I can narrate the process step by step. So what you see in here throughout the course is what we end up with in the final balance. While watching the course, keep in mind that the end goal is not so much the specific set of steps I take, the brands of plug-ins I use, or even the finish mix I end up with. Every mix is different and requires a unique approach.
My ultimate goal is to spark your creativity, inspire you to craft your own original mix and find your own unique voice as a mixer.
