Mixing A Metal Song From Start to Finish | Step 1: Setup and Prep

In this series, you’re going to learn the process of mixing a metal song from start to finish. If you want to learn how to take a raw recording of a metal song to a loud, punchy, exciting mix, then you’re in the right place!

I’ve split this series up into 6 videos – one for each of the 6 steps of my mixing process. This is the process that I use to get great results fast. I’ll guide you through the process from scratch, you’ll see which plugins and techniques I use and I’ll explain my decisions along the way. I’m mixing on Pro Tools but what you’ll learn applies to any DAW.

Part 1 is all about setting up and preparing the tracks before we start adding any plugins. We don’t want anything getting in the way of the creative process during the mix so it’s really important to set the mix up right from the start and I’m going to show you how to do that.

Let’s get mixing!
