YouTube has become my primary method of learning about mixing and music production.
It is full of good mixing tutorials but sometimes the trouble is finding them.
I wanted to share with you my favorite channels so that you can also learn from them. All of these guys are doing a fantastic job with their channels. If you are liking it, show your support: like, subscribe and share their work!
Here we go.
The Pro Audio Files
The Pro Audio Files are consistently putting out good quality tutorials. They are featuring several different expert instructors. Must-subscribe.
Michael White is a man with many faces: a record producer, mixing and mastering engineer, teacher, author, consultant… He’s been active in the music industry since the early 80’s and his credentials include projects like Whitney Houston, Rolling Stones, Madonna, Duran Duran and Prince.
He has a great way of being able to explain complex things in a meaningful way.
Do yourself a favor and check out some of his videos. It’s pure gold.
With mix credits including Michael Jackson, Kelly Clarkson, AfroJack, Beyonce, Elton John, Christina Aguilera and Jill Scott, Dave Pensado is acknowledged as one of the leading online educators for all things audio.
Point Blank Music School
Point Blank Music School have a lot of super useful and well produced videos up on their channel. They range from mixing tutorials to sound design and workflow tips. I love it!
The Mixbus Tv channel has been very useful for me. Make sure to check their Ultimate Compression Tutorial videos. Great stuff.
The Recording Revolution
Graham Cochrane from The Recording Revolution has tons of good material up on his channel. Besides the tutorials I also suggest you watch his video blog content, because he is very much on point.
