Free Mix Challenge Video Tutorials - Mixing Songs In Less Than 15 Minutes

Mixing music is commonly regarded as a challenging process. Many believe mixing takes a lot of time and effort in order to get great sounding results but we don't believe that it does. Songs that have been well-written, skillfully arranged and carefully recorded, in essence, mix themselves. 

In these videos, you will see and hear how a mix can quickly come together using a number of plug-in bundles from some of the Pro Audio Industry's leading plug-in developers. Watch these mix challenge videos to see how quickly mixes can take serious shape in less than 15 minutes.
