I get a lot of heat when I say that mixdown isn’t high priority in music production.
Learning and focusing on mixdown is fun and easy and it offers certainty, but is it really where our focus should be?
Is focusing on the technical aspects of music production giving us the most progress, or is it actually shielding us from fully realising our creative potential?
In this episode, we’ll discuss the importance of building and focusing on the core foundations of music production, such as creativity and composition, and why we should develop these skills before we dive over to mixdown.
- Find out where you are in your production journey
- Focusing on the technical aspects can sometimes do more harm than good
- “A shit track with a great mixdown is still a shit track.”
- Importance of focusing on composition and creativity first
- Focusing on your 80/20
