Course Description

Hi! - I'm GratuiTous.  I've been producing music on FL Studio since 2011 and have worked with a GRAMMY nominated recording artist.

The mixer is a daunting tool for new producers just getting started in music production.

So that's my goal with this course - to break down the mixer in an easy-to-understand course.

We start at the basics by comparing a real hardware mixer to FL Studio's digital mixer and eventually work our way up to subgroups and complex routing with sends.

A funny thing I'll mention is when I first started mixing I typically liked my unmixed version better than my mixed version lol.

If you're just starting, too, then I'm sure you've experienced this.

Mixing is something that will only come with time.

The reason I didn't like my mixes when I was new was simply because of inexperience and over-processing.

As I gained more experience I gained a better insight to what I'm wanting to achieve out of a mix, and that's typically gentler settings while allowing more focus towards certain elements of the song.

I break down many fundamentals I've discovered over my years of being a music producer and share how I set up my own personal mixer with color-coding and proper labeling to achieve a fast and efficient mix.

This course will build a solid understanding of the mixer and you'll be able to route your audio around with complexity.

 Who this course is for:

  • The inspired producer wanting to achieve the next level in their productions
  • Those who are wanting to have a solid grasp on the mixer and creative audio routing


What will you learn in this course:

  • Understand and use the mixer at an advanced level
  • Be knowledgeable in audio routing and comprehend series vs. parallel processing
  • Learn meticulous organization skills for ultimate workflow efficiency
  • Gain insight to powerful shortcuts to speed up your productions and mix time
