This online workshop will go deep into mixing Electronic Dance Music, sharing popular workflows and professional insights along the way.

Our goal is to help you gain confidence in the processes involved in mixing electronic music, from an informed perspective.  During the first half of the workshop, you will achieve a deeper understanding of professional mixing techniques to improve your overall sound in profound ways. Kriss will walk you through the entire mixing workflow and share comprehensive examples of how different processing and routing techniques impact the overall mix. You will also learn about session organization, signal routing, and creating the depth and width heard in professional mixes.

The second half of the course will be dedicated to concepts like serial compression, parallel processing, cascading aux sends, mixing by frequency/emotion, summing and mix bus processing. Mixing is an art. As someone who is mixing an EDM track, your goal is to develop workflows and techniques that help your music come to life in powerful ways.
