Mixing Electronic Music (Free Course)

Hi ladies and guys,

My name is Jor, and in my private lessons with students I very often get the same question: How to make my songs match those top Beatport tracks?
The truth is, even if you produce good tracks from a composition/arrangement point of view, if it lacks balance, clarity and power - it still won’t sound professional.

In fact, there are a lot of tracks in the Beatport top-100 charts that are not all that great from an artistic point of view, but they still sound great and are able to capture the listeners attention. Now I’m not saying that you should go and write crappy songs, the message here is that you should never underestimate the power of mixing.

But here’s the problem - most of the mixing courses out there are focused on techniques that came from the analogue studio times, where people recorded their songs on large mixing desks and had limited abilities to transform the sound.
On top of that, in almost all cases the songs were written by different guys than the ones mixing it, a completely different mindset!
As with most technological developments the technology always tends to be faster than our understanding and adaptation in regards to this new technique. We simply don’t feel comfortable when the rules change, even though this “change of rules” requires a new workflow and a different approach to accommodate the new developments.

For modern producers mixing is an indisputable part of their production process; You don’t wait until your track is ready to start mixing, you write and mix at the same time. You want to hear how it sounds while producing, as good sounding tracks inspire you to make it even better.

To give you an introduction on how mixing is done by modern electronic music producers, I’ve made a short FREE mixing course.

Sound Designer (Loopmasters, Camel Audio, ADSR sounds, SoundFreqs), Music Production Instructor (Pyramind), Grade C certified music teacher

My name is Jor van der Poel, I was born in the Netherlands and lived in Vancouver, BC for years. Currently I am living in Berlin, which proves to be a great playground for the experimental minded (i.e. Mad Scientists).

I am a music producer, arranger, teacher and sound designer. I am certified in both music theory and sound design education. When I was younger I wanted to be a famous drummer, when I already knew how to play so I started teaching drums to others and I got myself into music education. This introduced me to a whole new world of music, and I realised that if I knew how to record and arrange I could be my own band. So I started practicing piano and guitar, both classical and jazz and learned how to record this to use in my music.

Besides acoustic music, I also love the extreme flexibility of synthetic sounds which made me want to learn about sound design, mixing and mastering. I spend a few years practicing this 8 hours a day, I got pretty good at it and 5 years ago I started making weekly sound design videos for the online community ADSR. This introduced me to a lot of people in the music industry, and taught me more about educating others. It also got me on the Sound-Design team of various Software Developers and a position as featured mentor for Pyramind, CA.

I am a co-founder of Sound-Freqs, a sound-design label that focuses on community and the owner of Subject Sound, an online school for Sound Design, Production & Music Theory.
