Learn how to mix music at home using a framework and core skills to help improve your mixing process and mindset, no matter what level you are at or the DAW you use.
Simply Mixing is a learning resource to make you mix better music, simple!
◉ Sometimes, I feel I need to go back to the basics because my knowledge exceeds my practical ability...
◉ I literally can’t hear things I add into my mix clearly anymore, even when I've got a terrible low end or nasty high end, I just can’t tell...
◉ Your time is limited and you spend it experimenting and searching for sounds, trying to fix problems rather than quickly finishing mixes and regularly releasing fresh new music.
◉ All you want to do is produce music that people will enjoy, have more self belief and feel good about your work when other people hear them.
◉ I want mixes that compete with those on the same playlist...
Simply Mixing covers much more of the theory behind mixing music, whereas so many music mixing courses and tutorials only cover mixing in a "show and tell" style.
I believe it's so important to have the core principles of audio engineering nailed so you have a solid grounding from which to build true expertise and your pro-mixing tool box.
By understanding your WHY when mixing, you’ll make faster decisions that have greater impact on the final mix, bridging the divide between concept and application, developing your problem solving skills to not only mix faster but feel more creative and confident than ever before.

I'm a BBC trained sound engineer mixing and mastering engineer based in the UK and started recording and mixing music in the mid-’90s from a small home studio.
In 2000, I decided to find out how to turn my hobby into a full-time career and after studying at the SAE Institute in London I went on to work for the BBC.
There I engineered many of the UK’s most popular radio shows and live music sessions from the BBC’s Maida Vale Studios. I've worked with a wide variety of artists and have been credited on records by multi platinum artists.
