MIXING THE BAND™ AUDIO TRAINING COURSES
Mixing The Band™ is a series of instructional tools designed to help you become a better audio engineer. It is a self-study program that you can work at your own pace in your own space.
With Mixing The Band™, you will be mixing.
After years of making records and teaching mixing, Sean has determined that there are 3 areas of study will make all the difference in the quality of your work. First, you must LEARN HOW to mix through hands-on tutorials and application of techniques. Second, you must PRACTICE mixing and have your mixes critiqued, and third, you must TRAIN YOUR EARS to hear and identify audio characteristics.
Therefore, the 3 main tools available to you at Mixing The Band™ include:
- Instructional materials and tutorials
- Practice materials and mix critiques
- Ear training
Learn to mix in your place at your pace
Learn how to make better mixes in the comfort of your own studio with Mixing The Band™, a comprehensive and interactive audio ear training and mixing training course.
Sean Shannon has combined his experience making records and teaching mixing with the support of some of the best audio software companies and bands to bring you these study-at-home courses.
These lessons cover critical listening and the mixing process from beginning to end, from the basics of sound and system setup through advanced production techniques and mastering. They are designed to be used as standalone, study-at-home, interactive, vocational-type audio training lessons, or as an addition to a college-level recording course.
You may also qualify for student pricing on select software from our sponsors.
For convenience, Mixing The Band™ is split into lessons covering audio and mixing from beginning to end. New lessons will be added as they become available. Each lesson includes the textbook for the lesson, the video tutorials, and a practice multi-track session. The lessons are to be used concurrently with the Ear Training Kit™ and Mix Critiques for best results.
