How do you get loudness, clarity, definition, without sacrificing dynamics? How do you use advanced mixing techniques to realise the potential of a song? How do you mix and master for different platforms?
Three days of full immersion at the famous Brighton Electric Studio, in a fantastic-sounding room with ATC monitoring, state-of-the-art analogue and digital mixing equipment, and taking advantage of the studio's bar to relax and socialise between sessions.
The next course will take place on Monday 18, Tuesday 19, Wednesday 20 March 2024.
With no more than five participants per course, you are actively coached and given advice based on your interest and level of experience.
This isn't the usual passive masterclass where someone mixes a perfect song making it look easy; here you learn by being involved as we work on your own project, and by playing the role of mix engineer for other people's multitracks. The focus of this course is not just equipment but the mindset that drives your creative and technical approach to mixing and mastering, answering the question “what would a professional engineer do that I have not been doing until now?”
This course is not for beginners: you should have at the very least one year of experience producing and mixing with your software of choice (Logic, Pro Tools, Ableton, Cubase, FL studio, Reason, Reaper, etc).

While we provide many examples from real-world productions and commercially released music, you are encouraged to bring your own projects, multi-track sessions, stems, mixes to master.
The main software used for this course is Logic X, although some demonstrations could also be made in Ableton or ProTools. The fact of the matter is that the techniques we discuss are not specific to any software.
Occasionally we will demonstrate specific software plugins, when no other product offers the same features, and all the usual products will be used (Waves, Universal Audio, Slate Digital, SoundToys, FabFilter, etc… the list is too long). And to put all this in perspective, we also have some quite a collection of seriously expensive analog equipment which you can hear in direct comparison with the software emulations.
On completion of this course you will get a certificate from London School of Sound and one-year access to online notes with links to all the equipment discussed during the sessions, and links to websites and communities where you can find collaborators and clients, and lots more.
This course has given me the skills I needed to see my productions through from beginning to end.
It's like I never really understood what to do with effects. Everything makes sense now.
It's amazing when you're shown the way... It's not really about the fancy toys, it changes how you listen to sound.
I thought I knew what EQ does and how to use it… I was wrong. I'd recommend this course to anyone.
