Mixing Orchestral Music
Orchestral cues often have lots of 'moving parts'. There's the living, breathing dynamics of each of the sections as they play off each other, there's the incredible range of timbres that the instruments are able to produce and there's the sheer size of the soundscape.
The job as a mixer can seem overwhelming. You often start with hundreds of individual tracks and somehow have to find a way to blend them together to bring a balanced and 'well rounded' sound.
What we need is a system we can use for 'every mix' that breaks things down into logical steps and explains every aspect of orchestral mixing.
Topics covered in the course
Piece by Piece
In 'Mixing Orchestral Music' we've provided a blueprint to help you build a great orchestral mix 'from the ground up'. We've taken away the guesswork at every point of the process so you can be confident of finishing up with a professional sounding track. You'll learn everything from how to set up your session for maximum efficiency to the use of effects like EQ and compression, the magic of automation, and finally how ad saturation and warmth to your sounds.
