Watch professional mixer Brian Lee White take a rock song from the raw recorded tracks to a great-sounding, polished mix in Pro Tools.
(gentle xylophone strikes) - [Voiceover] Hi, I'm Brian Lee White. And welcome to mixing a rock song in Pro Tools. In this advanced course, we'll work our way through a mix from scratch. Starting with the raw tracks, I'll walk you through getting basic levels and pan settings. Next, I'll move on to the drums and bass to set up a solid foundation. I'll then add in the vocals and get the singer sounding like a star.
All before bringing in the guitars, keys and percussion to round out the track. Using automation I will optimize levels, add drama and build excitement from section to section. Finally, I'll touch up any loose ends with the mix revision, and bounce out the finished mix to a stereo master. So if you're ready, I'm ready. Let's get started.
