Ableton Live Mixing Tips | Liam Shy

  |  Jeff Straw  |  

Continuing our Mixing Month theme, next up we bring you Liam Shy (Mountain of Youth) who teaches several of our Ableton courses here at Pyramind.

In this two part video tutorial, Liam explains his approach to mixing and gives you some specific steps to take in your process. Something he feels very strongly about is creating a brand new session when you are ready to mix, separate and distinct from the one that you use for producing and arranging. Watch the videos to find out why.
