In this video, I turned the camera on while mixing to show you the steps I took to get a balanced mix. I use an approach called “Top-Down Mixing” where I start by setting a static mix before adding effects and automating. These techniques can be applied when mixing many types of music. Feel free to ask me any questions about these methods in the comments below. ►The song is called “You” by The Workday Release. Listen to the final mix here on YouTube: https://youtu.be/zXTn5JddNNQ The final mix was done by Andy Toy (@andytoymusic), a brilliant engineer and mixer.

In The Mix is all about simplifying the recording, production, mixing, and mastering process and helping you unlock your creativity.

Micahel Wynne is a recording artist and mixing engineer with a passion for teaching (and instant ramen). In 2015 I discovered my enthusiasm for music and audio; I learned how to record and produce songs in my university student room with a just cheap laptop and FL Studio. After several months of working in audio sessions between school assignments, I decided to leave uni with a 2-year engineering diploma to pursue a career in music. I wanted to learn everything I could about the industry and the artistic process, so I started making original music as half of the duo “Miavono”. In late 2016 I began my journey on YouTube, sharing my knowledge and experiences with audio in the form of tutorials on “In The Mix”. I quickly grew a community of over 120,000 producers, artists, and audio professionals, a group of people whose passions aligned with mine. Last year I built my own home studio from the ground up in my back garden, set in the rural highlands of Scotland, and have since been supported by and involved with some of the greatest people in the industry.
