Practice Your Mixing Skills with “Okay” by Latrell James | iZotope Sessions
In this tutorial, learn five essential mixing and mastering tips.
1: (1:30) Detect and clean-up issues in the lead vocal
Geoff demonstrates how to identify and remove problematic issues hiding in a vocal take before moving on to further topline mixing. Using RX 6, you’ll learn how to spot plosives in the spectrogram, and then remove them effortlessly with the De-plosive module. Taking care of problems early in the mixing process for the topline vocal will ensure they won’t get unpleasantly highlighted when you add any dynamics processing further into the mixing process.
2: (6:47) Organize low-end elements in a hip-hop mix
Geoff shows you how to experiment with Neutron’s hi-pass EQ slopes and flexible sidechain system to untangle bass and kick in this hip hop session, all while keeping an eye on Tonal Balance Control’s metering tools to confidently manage the track’s overall low-end profile.
3: (18:02) Visually mix vocal harmonies
Geoff shows you how to instantly audition unique vocal harmony scenarios by controlling the panning, loudness and width for each vocal layer in Neutron 2’s Visual Mixer.
4: (26:16) Jump-start the lead vocal
Geoff uses a combination of Neutron 2, Nectar 2, Bomb Factory’s BF76 and Ozone’s Vintage Tape to quickly integrate a vocal into a busy mix.
5: (35:23) Use EQ mastering techniques to translate the music across listening environments
Geoff uses Ozone 8 and Tonal Balance Control to pinpoint and tackle all too common frequency problems that would otherwise prevent a track from sounding great on all playback systems.
