Let’s talk about the biggest mixing mistake to avoid if you want to become a successful music producer. In fact, by doing LESS, you can make your mix sound 1000x better. Let me explain…

The biggest mixing mistake to avoid

Sometimes, I’m listening to your mixes and songs. What I usually notice is a big mixing mistake that you don’t really have to make. This mixing mistake is using bad samples.

The problem with mixing bad samples

If you’re using bad samples, you’re building a song with sounds that are fundamentally flawed. You see, bad samples can miss some elements or frequencies that you cannot create out of thin air. No matter the mixing effort, it’s basically impossible to fix this.

Therefore, the problem arises when you use low-quality samples, stack them on top of each other and then put in a lot of mixing effort to make it sound right. Now, this can definitely result in a cool and unique project, but in the end it’s a losing battle and you will end up with a mediocre mix at best.

That’s why; avoid using bad samples and build your track with a solid foundation. So, you always want to start with good solid samples.

So, make sure to use great samples and I guarantee your mix will flourish and all elements will fall into place more smoothly. A really easy tip, but invaluable for saving headaches.
