This advanced course has been developed for experienced composers and music producers, who are  looking to deepen their mixing skills and learn more about the tricks of the trade. It’s ideal for those who are mixing their own compositions for professional or commercial release.

This short course will help you to strengthen your mixing skills in a hands-on manner – working in collaboration with the course tutors and other participants over an intense but highly enjoyable three week period.

All classes are held at the iconic Windmill Lane Recording Studios, where you’ll get unique access to state-of-the-art mixing consoles, mixing software and studio facilities. And you’ll be learning from industry experts who have successful careers in the industry and who have worked with world-class artists.

We’ll explore how to work with different genres and we’ll share the mixing techniques used by some of the very best producers in the business. You’ll work with professional multitrack recordings and we’ll show you how to work through advanced workflows – to produce great music. The course covers both mixing “in the box” and the use of summing stems on SSL and Neve consoles.

The course content has been devised as a collaboration between the management teams at Windmill Lane Recording Studios and the leading educators in music production – Pulse College.
