Best You Tube Channels for Learning How To Mix

Hello Composers! So besides composing i guess nowadays you also should learn how mix your own music by yourself. I would like to share with you some of my favourite You Tube Channels about Production, Mixing And Mastering, not all of them are for composers and not all of them about mixing trailer or orchestral music only, but anyway if you want to succeed in creating a good sound quality for your tracks you have to understand the difference between mixing real and virtual instruments.
And of course in the comments you can write your own favourite You Tube channels about mixing and mastering for composers to help each other here.

This is super helpful thanks so much! Gonna be binge watching this week I think.

Alex Moukala, who i’m sure has been mentioned also has a yotube channel with loads of great videos, on everything from trailer music to cinematic etc.

All great suggestions here! Cinesamples also has some great videos with Tim Starnes.

Great list! Thanks for sharing Alexey :slight_smile:

Joël Dollié also has some really helpful stuff on his channel too : https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCkFQazrtOcf6f6q9lPSF0KQ/videos

He’s done quite a few live streams, which are cool to see his workflow.

Great suggestions. If your still getting your mixing foundations right I would highly recommend the recording revolution YouTube page. Graham C is really really good at breaking down every step of the mixing and recording process and it’s aimed at the bedroom producer.

He also has a free YouTube walkthrough course where you watch him mix and record from scratch. One in ideal mixing situation (in his studio) and another in a bad mixing situation (a cafe with apple earbuds). It’s great to demystify the process :slight_smile:
