The advent of home studios and the profound transformations in production methodologies and new criteria for digital distribution present a series of challenges for independent creators. The Digital and Hybrid Music Mixing course aims at equipping artists to perform an efficient sound mixing in an autonomous way to leave more room for listening and creativity.
Favoring a collective, inclusive and realistic approach, this training will serve as a bridge between DIY practices and the consultation of professional resources for music and sound mixing. It aims to empower artists in relation to home studio practices by introducing them to concrete approaches and strategies, as well as freely available online resources.
The training includes the creation and in-depth learning of mixing templates in the most popular Digital Audio Workstation (DAW) on OSX, PROTOOLS, STUDIO ONE, ABLETON LIVE, REAPER, etc… The entire course will deal with plug-ins, correction and creative production tools, in combination with analog consoles and processors, summing mixers and specialized touch controllers for mixing. An entire section of the course will be dedicated to the desirable transformation of a residential room into a sound studio, optimized by the positioning of furniture elements, the addition of acoustic treatments, the choice of reference loudspeakers and headphones, as well as the basic calibration of the entire system and the mixing sessions in this environment.
