MIXING WITH SKYZOO
COMPLETE MIXING COURSE
MIX YOUR TRACKS AT THE INDUSTRY STANDARD
Meet the Mentor
Brian has mixed for a lot of the big Hip-Hop names ranging from Styles P, Jadakiss, Nick Grant, Skyzoo, Torae, and more. He has been in the industry since 2010, when he landed his first professional job. He has been continuing to grow his business since.
He launched an educational YouTube channel in 2016 and has provided hours of educational material on various topics in the mixing and mastering process.
Now he is bringing you the most in depth and advanced mixing tutorial to date; complete with stems, and a drum sample library.
LEARN MORE THAN THE BASICS
Getting that initial jump off spot to launch your mixing career is tough. Especially when you are just starting and beginning to learn. You know how you want a record to sound; just don't know how to implement it. And even worse...you can't find the records that will allow you to practice and mix with.
When I initially started mixing, I did not have a lot of resources. I picked up mixing books and read articles online. The thousands of YouTube videos were not as readily available as they are right now, and even so, all of the given information is not necessarily accurate. I looked into getting an assistant job at a studio, but those are a nearly impossible to land these days. The only option I truthfully had was to record friends (although some were very talented) and mix based off of that.
It consisted of turning knobs and seeing if it would sound good.
If it did not...I would CMND + Z that and start over. Eventually I picked up some tricks and got a feel for things.
That is why I created this mixing course.
As much as I encourage creative freedom, and turning those knobs, you will learn significantly faster when you are simply pointed in the right direction.
I want to share my secrets with you, and allow you to learn in the comfort of your own chair, at your own pace. Follow along step by step with the stems of the record I am mixing. This will apply to any DAW and any system. I will be using EVERYTHING in the box (software plugins). There is no reason why you cannot get a professional sound from your home studio. The expensive equipment is not needed.
Learn how to achieve a professional mix right from your home studio:

GEARED TOWARDS MODERN RAP
Make Your Drums Smack
Use parallel compression to make your drums tight, punchy and hit hard...the way hip hop was intended to be heard.
Make Your Vocals Cut
Rap vocals are supposed to be in your face. Make sure every word of the story is heard by making the vocal cut through the mix.
Make Your Bass Rumble
Learn how to get your bass to rumble, but not muddy up your mix...a very common mixing mistake.
PROFESSIONALLY RECORDED MULTITRACK FILES
Getting files to practice your mixing with can be very difficult, especially when you are building your resume and just starting out. That is why I put together two folders. The first folder will consist of the multitrack files for Black Sambo by Skyzoo - the record I use in the courses' videos.
The second folder will consist of a different songs stems that you can take all of your newly acquired knowledge and apply your own mix on. That is the fun part.
FREE DRUM SAMPLES
An overwhelming majority of mixing/mastering engineers are also producers. For this reason I am including for free a library of drum samples that I have curated over the past decade. Some of the best kicks, snares, cymbals, percussion sounds and hi hats that I have either pulled from records, or recorded myself. In other words...this sample pack is 100% original and will help drive your creativity!
ON THE FENCE?
Sometimes these purchases can be hard to make. To help you lean a little more towards the right side of the fence, I'm including a 30 Day Money Back Guarantee. There is no need to hesitate. I am confident that with this mixing course you will take your mixing to the next level and begin putting out quality mixes consistently.
