Learn how to mix a whole song : where to begin, what processing to apply to dance music drums, bass and vocals, how to give life and movement to a steady synth track by using side-chain tricks, and much more. The mix of this great radio-ready song is a concise illustration of the techniques that are used in today’s musical productions, designed for optimal attention-catching from the listener, resulting in giving as much interest and character as possible to each individual track.
