Mixing: Tips and Tricks

Mixing your Eurodance song takes time and practice.

Here are some useful tips and tricks when mixing:

- cut narrow - boost wide

- roll off the low end

- try to cut more than boost

- boost moderatly and subtly

- try to stick to smaller dB adjustments

- be careful about boosting around 200-250 Hz (muddy zone)

- mix with professional headphones, hear it on good audio monitors

To compress or to equalize first? There is no general rule. If you change your EQ settings very often, you may benefit most from placing the compressor first; but if you set your EQ once, then you could benefit from placing the EQ in front.
