Regardless if you've listened to the music Casey has personally worked on or not, you'll find a lot of great information on his methods for mixing. It is such a great idea that this class comes with the files that Casey is actually work with so you can work side by side. This class includes best practices in organizing mixes, using busses, and what I consider the most important take away: listening to the MIX and not necessary just a single track over and over again. My requests: attendees had better formed questions to ask and to do another class -- I would love to hear some of the techniques and mixing that went into Church Mouth by Portugal. The Man.
Honestly i don't know how you can call it a mixing course when the dude never touches a pan knob,or a fader, on his ssl or his daw. and never leaves the edit screen. Im not knocking his talent and its not personal. Seems like a nice dude. but it feels pretty phoned in. Describing a 400hz bass cut as getting rid of this honky weirdness with no explination to frequency or db. Is the kind of indepth generalization that you get here. What you get is a guy playing back a premixed song with zero mix setup. And talking about his favorite plug-ins. No info on actually learning how to use the plugs or starting points or tips. Just throw it up use a preset and tweak it a little and overcompress the shitnout of stuff. Im glad it was only $30.00
It was straight forward and helped show everyone it doesn't take fancy plugins or shiny toys to make great records. Even his vocal chain is mid tier but he yields excellent results with years of knowledge on his side. Casey you should come back to do a song off Emarosa's 131 album. There has to be some cool tricks there.
