LEARN TO MIX IN STUDIO ONE 4

You’ve created a song, of sorts, in Presonus Studio One 4 and now you need to mix it. So let Andy Jones take you on a mixing masterclass, so you can turn those sonic ideas into a million dollars!

TECHNIQUE MIXING IN STUDIO ONE 4

STUDIO ONE TUTORIAL

Mixing your music correctly can seem like a laborious task after the excitement of getting your initial ideas into some loops, and then expanding those loops into an arrangement, so it can often be seen as the boring process. In reality, of course, you could and perhaps should be mixing as you arrange, but for this tutorial we’re going to focus on just the mixing process, really to show how important a role it plays. Yes, the excitement is in the composition, but mixing really does matter when it comes to the end results!

We’ll also use the opportunity to explore some of Presonus Studio One 4’s great features for mixing. This DAW really has come of age and many people are starting to use it, thanks to its slick GUI, dozens of included instruments and effects and its high-quality, professional-level features.

GET A SONG, ANY SONG

We already have a tune and have arranged it roughly for this tutorial. You can read more about how we put this piece together in our Studio One tutorial series at www.musictech.net, but the reality is that by following this tutorial, you should be able to apply some mixing principles to whatever music you are making, so feel free to load in your own tunes and follow our advice to get a professional mix. And the mix process really does add this pro sheen. By getting levels right, spreading the music out correctly in the stereo spectrum and adding depth with EQ, you should end up with a great-sounding track with a full dynamic; one that uses every space in almost three sonic dimensions.
