Very excited about this chapter, I think this is where I struggle the most and I can’t wait to hear your thoughts on the mixdown process!

Stoked for this class. Mixdowns I think are one of the most important fundamentals in producing electronic music and I believe this is where I struggle the most since it can be abstract depending on your style. Thank you ! Looking forward to hearing your techniques

I’ve been putting a limiter on my master during the creation process for so long. Is this a bad habit? I’ve seen other pretty popular producers do this as well so I’m curious if it’s just a preference thing or do you advise against it?

I strongly advise against it. It’s going to really change your idea of the mixdown, for example you could have an element that’s really loud and not even notice it just because the limiter on the master is turning it down for you. The more elements like this you add to the track, the more unclear it becomes how loud the elements actually are. Some big artists might get away with it and might get good results, but there’s really no benefit to it and I would definitely recommend you to work with a blank master unless you absolutely know what you’re doing

EDIT: If you’re worried about loudness, don’t be! It’s ok to mix with quiet levels. In the upcoming classes about mastering I’ll show you how to go as loud as you want without having to push your sounds into a limiter early on 🙂

Hi do y normaly put the infk clipper on each channel before the -16utility or y put the clipper only on your busses and thanks a lot

Only when it’s needed, but more on the individual channels (before the -16 utility like you said). Mostly for sounds with more high frequencies, like claps and hihats. Sometimes on the drum bus/group.

Which tool are you using? With Shaperbox for example, more aggressive means ducking more than just the low frequencies, or increasing the amount of time that the sound is being ducked down for
