Is the mixing the most important part of music production? It has the power to completely change the expression and the mood of music. When you have a good recorded material and musicians with open minds, mixing becomes an enjoyable process of making decisions of choosing the right sound.
To be a good mixer you need years of practise, listening different genres, load of experience and a healthy pair of ears at last. By creative mixing you should be able to add new value to the song.
“Mixing and mastering are two different things but it may be seen as one. In the end, both stages must be done carefully and with a certain passion. For me, mixing is like painting. I am given colours, contures, shapes and shades.” Ondřej
