Future Music - - FEATURE | MIXING FOR THE CLUB -

Mod­ern club and pop pro­duc­tions are of­ten dy­nam­i­cally ‘dense’ through­out the fre­quency spec­trum, no­tably in midrange and high-mid ar­eas. Strike that bal­ance be­tween punch, life and so­lid­ity – par­al­lel com­pres­sion is a good op­tion

Limiters have a bad rep – but used care­fully, they can trans­par­ently shave off un­nec­es­sary tran­sient peaks from beats and spiky synths with­out dam­ag­ing the au­dio. Try 1-2dB of gain re­duc­tion, then slowly progress from there

If a sec­tion of a sig­nal is harsh in the mix, and dy­namic EQ isn’t pre­cise enough, think about chop­ping that bit out and EQing it on an­other chan­nel. Or, au­to­mate an EQ to dip harsher jumps

Em­brace the old­school aes­thetic and use harsh­ness to your ad­van­tage by leav­ing in oc­ca­sional res­o­nances within vo­cal sam­ples or synth stabs
