In the final mix, i used eq, sidechain compression

Detail aspects of your mixing and critical listening skills that you feel are developing, and those that could be improved on:

I feel that my critical listening skills are developing and things like paying attention to a mix and hearing things like what needs to be louder and quieter  or hearing what certain affects do to a track or a mix is getting easier for me to identify.

Critical listening skills i could still improve on are things like identifying the key of a track by ear or frequency.

Detail any problems that were remedied throughout the mix process:

There were no problems during the mix.

Details of any constructive feedback on your mix you received from either your teacher or peer:

Feedback overall was really just work on the mix more and pay attention to melodic areas and make sure the track sounds right.

DOS210.4 Pre Mix Planning

For this assessment, I have made a original track in the genre of Melbourne Bounce that I am going to mix.

The genre of Melbourne Bounce relies on mix techniques like Side-Chain Compression,EQing of the High and Sub offbeat bass, bandpass and formant filters on the synth leads and also dirty distorted saw waves.

This is some techniques that i haven’t used in the other mixes but have done in my own tracks.

Problems of the Mix

  • As I’m doing it myself, i will need a reference track to hear the mix compared to a commercial mix

OH&S of Home Studio

Im pretty careful when I’m working in my home studio space but in every situation theres always risks!

Potential Risks:

  • Electrocution – Cables managed properly, no daisy chaining power boards
  • Spillage – no liquid allowed near studio equipment
  • Sit properly on studio chair
  • Wear enclosed shoes
  • Loudness
