About The Class

an essential education for every mixer, no matter the genre.

Mastery of compression, EQ, reverb, and effects is essential for every mixer no matter the genre. In GearGods Presents: Mastering Metal Mixing: Fundamentals, Eyal Levi of Audiohammer Studios will show you how to apply those fundamentals to metal’s unique challenges.

In this class Eyal will show how you can use EQ in Pro Tools to carve out space for every element in the mix. You’ll learn how to mix all the typical elements of a metal song: vocals, bass, guitar, drums, synths and effects. He’ll also teach you how to use bussing, compression, and effects to help drums, vocals, and guitars cut through the track without overpowering it.

Tune in to Mastering Metal Mixing: Fundamentals and learn how to fit everything into a metal mix.
