3 Essential Tips for Better Mixes
Mixing is a tricky process, and even the most seasoned producers can run into issues. From getting your mix to translate well across different speakers to creating an engaging arrangement, many challenges can make mixing difficult.
The problem is that there isn’t one thing that makes a great mix; there are dozens of factors involved in putting together a track. You need to make sure your drums sound good, you have enough bass in your mix, you have melodies and hooks that will get stuck in people’s heads…and then there’s all the other stuff like mixing and mastering!
Fortunately for you, The Producer Kit has got you covered with 3 tips on how to create an amazing mix! We’ll show you how to set up your studio space for optimal listening quality and walk through each of the steps in our mixing workflow so that you master this craft before long.

Mixing at lower volumes may seem counterintuitive and boring, but this one mixing tip can get you great results! Get a Better Perspective, Mix Longer, and Save Your Ears.
There are many ways to use your producer tag and these ways may vary from producer to producer. Someone with no following and is working towards getting their foot in this industry may want to think about getting a producer tag. As we mentioned before, having a producer tag not only offers a layer of protection but it also helps promote your brand and helps you gain recognition for your hard work. Much like a photographer watermarking their photographs, a producer tag is your watermark but in the form of audio.
You can make your producer tag clean and smooth or grimy and in your face! It’s all up to you and what suits your brand.
