Tutorial "How to mix an Orchestra"

Mixing an Orchestra

There are hundreds of "Mixing Videos" in the net and you also can find lots of books about this theme. But the tips are often far away from your situation because...
All those tutorials are about mixing drums, vocals or guitar - but never about mixing orchestras played with samples.

This Tutorial will explain how to mix audio tracks, built with orchestra samples.
It will help to optimize your home studio, your listening situation
It will guide you through all the tasks which are leading to a good mix
It will explain the most important effects hand how to use them
It will offer audio material of whole pieces for using/practicing the theory.
It will offer some exercises in connection with the treated themes.
It will discuss different approaches, problems, traps around mixing.
It will show - beside the use - the difficulties with effects...
It will offer images, videos and audio examples of used effects in mixes.
It will often show solutions with several effects... so...
It is removed from certain products.
It will contain a lot of experiences, collected over 15 years "using samples"

It does not give dBs, compressing factors or any other values it will
show the theory and will offer exercises, hints and suitable audio-
material for increasing your abilities!

It does not show "how to use MIR" or other "complete solutions".

The tutorial will also contain small videos for making certain matters easily clear to you...

"How to find the balance within a section of instruments":

Unfortunately the release of the new tutorial will be later than originally announced. I'm very sorry for this bad message.
Because I am a self-employed business man I often have a bit too much "daily-works" so projects - as the tutorial is - grow slower. I hope to produce a huge step during July and August when the "normal business is slack".

So a realistic release could be the end of 2017.

Price of the Tutorial

All this knowledge and experinences collected in this tutorial together with audio tracks for mixing will cost you only the price of around 1 private lesson.

Leider verzögerte sich das publizieren des Tutorials gegenüber dem ursprünglichen Termin. Tut mir echt leid. Als Selbständiger wird man leider oft vom Tagesgeschäft "verschluckt".
Solche "Nebenprojekte" müssen dann leider hinten anstehen. Ich hoffe, während den flauen Monaten Juli / August einen grossen Schritt weiter zu kommen.

Neuer realistischer Veröffentlichungstermin: ENDE 2017.


All das Wissen und die Erfahrungen zum Thema "Mixing an Orchestra", zusammen mit den Audiotracks, um das Mischen zu lernen, wird im Rahmen einer einzigen Privat-Lektion liegen.


The tutorial will com as a html-file so that you can browse trhough it as you are used to with websites. It is probably the most compatible format for all the computer systems around the world.
