50 Mixing Tips From Steven Slate

I didn’t put this blog post together just because I want to collaborate with Steven Slate on an app that teaches people how to tune drums.

I did it because he’s been dropping knowledge on Twitter for over a year now. So I thought I’d gather up all the tweets and put them in one place for you to digest.

Thank him by following, ReTweeting, or checking out some of the awesome plug-ins Slate Digital has been putting out lately.

      haha you’ll have to forgive me, I deleted a few duplicates. Plus 50 looks better in the headline.

      Haha, modest false advertising Dan ;-) I think you can get away with that one.

    In other words: Steven doesn’t like to talk about guitars :P

    Thanks for compiling the list! I think definitely some of the drum, snare and frequency tips will help me out in the future with my sounds. I always consider my mixing to be a bit on the dull side so I really appreciate this list! Feel free to check out some of my songs and let me know what you think. http://alloydgd.tumblr.com/

    Thanks for posting. I’ve been compressing my reverb returns since day one. It just seemed right. I caught a lot of crap from people telling me not to. Its nice to see that someone with a lot of success is validating that I was on the right path!
