About this course
In this course you'll learn how to setup a session for a great EDM workflow. You'll learn how to tame and sculpt the low end of this song to keep the bass pumping and moving, because as we all know in dance music the kick and the bass are just as important as the melody. We'll also teach you how to use distortion and pitch shift effects to make your synths sound huge and powerful, use EQ and compression to give instruments and vocals their own sonic space in the mix, and use popular effects and their settings to get the right style of sound for this music, which is really really important.
This course is for the Home Studio Mixing Engineer and Laptop Producer. This class is designed for the intermediate audio engineer and above, and showcases tried and true mixing techniques heard on countless records combined with a unique perspective from a seasoned engineer. For beginners this class still offers the opportunity to see how a professional mix comes to life from beginning to end and will give you a rare look under the hood of a world class mix.
We'll be available to answer any questions you have about mixing electronic dance music. With a community of over 4500 students and a ton of great reviews across all of our courses we promise a great learning experience.

I already feel like I'm much better! woo!"
