Hey guys it’s Andre.

Getting started in mixing sure is not the easiest part of production. Especially clashing signals in the same range can be a problem, which not always can be solved by simple volume adjusting.

To make you start with a bit of help, I did a little example picture showing some common frequencies and how boosting or lowering them will affect your mix. Also some EQ-ing tricks, I learned from friends, own experience and tutorials.


These techniques are very common to most mixes, but of course you need to adjust your values to your mix. These are just a few tips for quick edits, but if you want to get the best result, you need to trust your ear.

Another tip: Mixing with references will help you get close to that professional sound and provide a quick A/B comparison.

Cheers and have a great weekend.
