Get maximum impact out of your drops
We'll teach you how to make sure all of your drops sound huge and translate well on laptops, earbuds, and of course — dance floors.
Increase the stereo width of your mix
Learn techniques for pitch-shifting, panning, doubling, imaging, frequency-dependent separation, modulation, mid-side processing, reverb and delay.
Mix a lush sounding lead vocal
Learn how to get a modern glossy vocal with EQ, dynamics processing and time-based effects while avoiding a harsh or over-processed sound.
Pretreat vocals with pitch correction
Perfect your vocals with transparent pitch correction, use tuning as a radical effect, or find that perfect sweet spot right in between.
Mix kicks that cut through a dense mix
A great sounding kick drum is paramount. We'll show you the secrets to getting hard-hitting kicks in our in-depth kick mixing workshop.
Add a rhythmic pulse to your mix
You may know it as sidechain compression, but there's many ways to get rhythmic pumping. We'll break them all down so you know which to use.
Add excitement with automation
Static mixes are boring! We'll show you how to use automation to bring life and excitement to special moments hiding within your song.
Maximize tension and release in a mix
We'll show you tips and techniques for getting the most out of buildups and breakdowns that result in dramatic moments of tension and release.
Get huge synth leads, pads and basses
Learn how to bring color and excitement out of your synths while making sure they stand out and sit perfectly in the mix.
Apply these techniques to other genres
This tutorial is based around EDM source material, but the techniques and approaches we teach you will directly apply to other genres as well.

Contrast is vital to a great song and an exciting mix. We’ll show you techniques for achieving effective contrast within your arrangement and mix.

What songs are used in the tutorial?

Syn Cole - Miami 82 (by Everbeatz)
Medicineman & Sofija Knezevic - Another Me (Mike Livingstone Remix)
Does the tutorial only apply to Pro Tools?
Nope! While Matthew mixes in Pro Tools, the processes he teaches are completely independent of any one particular DAW and will apply to Logic, Ableton, Cubase, Reaper, Fruity Loops, Studio One and other similar platforms.
Do I need to own specific plugins?
Nope! Matthew uses the plugins he prefers to teach with, but the concepts will apply to any similar signal processing. Matthew may demonstrate with the FabFilter Pro-Q EQ or Sonnox Oxford Dynamics compressor, but the same ideas will apply to any EQ or compressor, including stock plugins inside your DAW.
Using high quality software can certainly improve your results, but the most important factor is learning to use what you already have as effectively as possible — and that's what we're all about.
How is this different than other tutorials?
Mixing EDM differs from other tutorials in a lot of ways.
First, it's process-oriented. Rather than teaching a bunch of techniques that only apply to specific source material, Matthew teaches you what to listen for and how to adapt that to the various demands of each individual record.
Secondly, the tutorials are aimed directly at EDM. While a lot of mixing overlaps genres, every style of music has its own unique stylistic world, and those specific nuances are important and shouldn't be overlooked.
Lastly, Matthew isn't just a highly skilled and accredited engineer, but also a highly skilled educator! There are many great engineers — and many of great teachers — but few excel at both. Matthew communicates complex ideas in an easy to understand and digestible way.
