[video] Mixing kicks

I’m running you through the things I take into account when mixing kickdrums.
I always think of kicks as having a few different “parts”, and I go through them here.

I love working with all styles, but work a lot with house among other styles, and have mixed and/or mastered music by John Summit, Luke Vibert, Defected Records, John Summit, Armada Music, Repopulate Mars, Octo Octa, etc.

I’m a nerd that makes his living doing audio engineering, and technological advancements such as isolating parts of music/audio fascinate me highly.

I also love making sample-based music, so being able to strip out and isolate some elements in audio interests me.

Hence, let’s take a look at and compare two music apps that can isolate musical elements:
RX8 by Izotope vs Neural Mix Pro by Algoriddim.

How do these compare, and what are their pros and cons?

Reference songs for producing/mixing/mastering

As a mixing and mastering engineer, I’m often asked about good reference songs, so I did a FREE post on my Patreon listing some refs I use often with some most popular genres (DNB, house, hip hop, trap, techno):

Later this month I’ll be doing two EXCLUSIVE videos:
1) how to reference efficiently and
2) how to set up your own mastering project in your DAW.
