I saw a video you posted about gain staging, but I noticed that in the mix lessons videos you do not talk about gain staging. Is this something you incorporated after you made those videos, or is gain staging something you don’t always do? Btw I’m currently working on week 7 of the mix lessons video, so maybe I haven’t gotten far enough into the course, but I thought I would ask. Thanks.
Gain staging is always involved in some fashion or another. You might be referring to the video I shared about maintaining headroom in your mix. If so, that’s not something I always do but is a handy trick to use if you have a dense mix that is overloading your stereo bus.
The video I mentioned was in the multi dimensional mixing section of the site. It’s supposed to accompany your e-book. I should have been more specific in my initial post. My apologies. I applied this tip to my mix of “Lovin Me” and it did help with the overload in the master/stereo bus. It’s something I’ve struggled with and never knew what to do about it, so I thank you sir.

I am especially enjoying the latest episode which analyzes each of the elements in the mix. Gonna give it another listen on mys studio monitors (as opposed to in my car) to really hear what's going on in the mix. Well done!

This is truly the best way to learn all ins and outs of mixing. Dezz knows how to explain things in a way anybody can understand. This clear way of explaining convinced me to sign up for the Mixlessons online course! Thanks Dezz! Keep up the good work!
Fantastic to listen to!

I found Dezz on you tube and just fell into a whole new world of learning. And it led me to this techmuze podcast, which i must add is short sweet and really gets you thinking about a number of topics.but it doesn't end there. Techmuze.ca also connects you to a community of like minded others sharing ideas on our lovely art form. I really feel like any one could pick up some nice info from dezz and everything he's put together . Shout out to dezz, what's up bro
