50 Mixing Tips From Steven Slate

➥ Mixing Drums is available now and on sale for a limited time

Steven Slate has been dropping knowledge on Twitter for over a year now, so I thought I’d round up all his mixing tips and put them on one page for you to fly through.

Thank him by ReTweeting or checking out some of Slate Digital’s awesome plugins.

      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!

    Great tips from one of the top dog! People just starting out should really pay attention to these tips, he’s not mentioning any specific plugins. All this tricks can be done with something that you have in your DAW. What matters is if you know how to use the plugins. That’s whats sets pros apart from beginners and happy amateurs. And we all have to start somewhere, where all kids at first! To become as good as Steven Slate takes a lot of time and trial and error. It’s great tho to get this simple but awesome tips directly from one of the top dog!

    Thanks Dan for putting them together at one place! Good job!

    I agree learning how to use the plugins and knowing the characteristic. Is the key; I’m still learning and school is still in session. I copied every last one of these. LOL For my enjoyment of reading. Thanks for the article much appreciated.

    Hey Andrew Lloyd what do you use to do your music some of the instruments seem a little displace. But I do like the concept. Holla bro!
