    The song featured in this video is ‘My Final Hour’ by Snakebite.

    ✅ You can mix this song yourself if you get the Mixing Rock with Ulrich Wild course:

    I often think about a conversation I had with David Foster, who I recently had the pleasure of working with on a Diane Warren song- he talked about walking around a Mall and going in and out of stores.

    What do you hear?

    Predominantly Vocals and Drums.

    This goes to show that in any mix the centre, the area unaffected by stereo imaging, is THE most important part of our mix!

    While most Mixers don’t mix in Mono, they do very often check in Mono.

    Understanding the basic concepts of LCR is a great tool to add to your mixing arsenal!

    Most professional mixers have a great understanding of what EQ points work to help support the sides and the centre.

    “If you don’t understand the concepts of EQ and Compression at a very bare-bones level, if you’re not making the right moves, throwing an expensive plugin or hardware compressor on it won’t help you at all.” – Phil Allen

    MIXING IN MONO?..... Dont be fooled !!!


    A popular belief that hearing a stereo source, FROM A DISTANCE, which then sounds like mono, will reveal phase cancellation problems. NOT SO ...and I prove WHY. You must collapse your stereo sources inside your DAW, using your favorite method (panning, mono button, etc) to check for phase problems.

    That said, a useful reason for hearing your stereo mix, from a distance (another room), is for checking volume relationship and overall balance....and yes, it will tend to sound like it is in MONO!

    Why and How to EQ in Mono


    Improving your mixing skills and creating a better mix can be really challenging. Fortunately, there are simple things you can do to speed up the process!

    Mixing in mono (as opposed to stereo) is one GREAT way to get better results.

    Specifically, EQ'ing in mono can give you better separation between tracks. It also allows you to be more effective with equalization in general.

    Remember, if you don't want to use a plugin like I did to get your mix in mono you can also:

    1.) Pan your master fader L and R sliders to the center (great for ProTools).

    2.) Utilize a monitor management box (like the PreSonus Monitor Station V2) and engage the mono buttons on them.

    Do We Mix Synth Bass in Mono or Stereo?


    // // The fifth video in the Ask Weiss series. This question comes from Alexander Hartung: “I like the Future House style of bass. The problem is, I always see in tutorials that people mix the sub parts to mono, but if you listen to the music, the bass is mixed wide in the panorama field?!“

    More Ask Weiss videos:

    If you have a question for Matt related to mixing, recording, producing or mastering music, simply leave a comment on one of the Ask Weiss YouTube videos.


    The problem with wide bass is two-fold. First of all, we have difficulty localizing sub frequencies. Meaning, it's very difficult to tell if a bass is actually wide or not. Second of all, when we fold bass into mono, because of the waveforms, we tend to get a lot more phase cancellation and problems showing up if we use stereo effects.

    So that's why people generally advise working in mono when we're looking at the bass, specifically, the sub-bass.

    Now, as we move above the sub-bass, we start getting into the realm of audio that's more easy to localize, and that's an important idea, because we can create wide basses by going to that next octave up – which is like our primary bass range from maybe 70 Hz to like, 200 Hz. That zone, that's where we can get our width pretty cleanly.

    From the programming side of things, if you have a couple of oscillators, like if you have a three-oscillator or more synth, you can simply go an octave up and do a little distune on two of the oscillators and pan them apart, and maybe throw in a filter there, and you will get a wide sounding bass.

    Now, let's look at your specific question. You said future house, so I pulled up a Tchami record called Afterlife. Let's give it a listen.

    [song plays]

    So, just listening to that clip, I'm hearing most of the low information happening in the center. There is a bass layer that feels like it's being spread out, and that main synth definitely has some spread to it, so I think that there's probably some reverb going on, or perhaps some kind of stereo enhancement processing going on.

    I'm not sure which, but I will say this. I don't think that the bass is entirely mono. So right off the bat, we can take everything we're reading online about mixing sub into mono with a grain of salt.

    Alright, now let's analyze this a little further. I've got a low pass filter here. This will allow us to hear what's happening in the low range a little more clearly.

    [song plays, filtered]

    Right? So we can definitely hear now very clearly that there is bass information on the sides, but let's take it one step further. I'm going to use some mid/side processing to eliminate the center signal, so we just hear what's living in the stereo field.

    [song plays, sides only, filtered]

    So that's what we have on our sides. Let's listen one more time.

    [song plays, sides only, filtered]

    So, first of all, all of it sounds like reverb for the most part. It has this sort of ghostly, washy kind of quality, and that to me says, “Yup, that's a reverb.”So I think that the stereo sound is coming from a reverb return for the most part, as opposed to actual stereo stuff that's been panned apart. What I find interesting, is that I'm actually hearing a good amount of kick drum, which means there's probably some reverb on the kick.

    Okay. One more time, let's listen, and then let's take a listen at another analyzer.

    [music plays, sides only, filtered]

    So that main synth, which has a bass element to it, has reverb on it as well, and we're hearing that too, and that's in our primary bass range.

    But now let's look on an analyzer.

    [music plays, sides only, filtered]

    So, looking at it on the analyzer, there is actual sub information that is getting into the reverb return. So there is a little bit of spread on the sub.

    Now, is there a lot? Definitely not. It's subtle. But, it is there. So, to answer your question, no, you can certainly use stereo elements on the low part of your bass to get a wider feel.

    My recommendation is just be cautious how you're doing it. Reverb is a good way of doing it, upper octave stereo kind of subtle stuff tucked in there can be a good way to do it. I don't recommend doing very stereoized low information because it will phase poorly in mono, but that said, now at least we can hear what's going on.

    Mischen in mono - 29 Tipps in 31 Tagen


    Auf den ersten Blick mag es unlogisch erscheinen seinen Mix in mono abzuhören. Abmischen in mono ist tatsächlich schwieriger und auch unangenehmer.

    Allerdings hat es einen großen Vorteil: Indem wir unser Mix auf Mono schalten, haben wir praktisch alle Instrumente und somit auch alle Frequenzen, die der Mix abdeckt in einer Reihe vor uns. Somit können wir eher wahrnehmen, ob einzelne Instrumente um Frequenzbereiche kämpfen.

    Außerm sollte man nicht unterschätzen auf wievielten Geräten heute noch Musik in Mono gehört wird. Funktioniert dein Mix in mono, wird er auch in stereo funktionieren.

    Voici pourquoi je me fous de la compatibilité MONO



    Aujourd'hui, j'aborde une question qui revient constamment sur la table: est-ce que c'est important de vérifier ses mixs en mono ? Perso, je m'en bas un peu les cou***** et voici pourquoi.
    Il semblerait que je n’aie pas assez nuancé mes propos, parce que plusieurs d’entre vous semblent être dérangés par ma vision du mono. Alors, voici quelques nuances, dans le désordre:

    -Quand je travaille avec du matériel acoustique, je prends toujours le temps de vérifier la relation de phase entre les différents micros, alors ce n’est généralement plus un “risque” par la suite durant le mix.

    -Comme je le dis dans la vidéo, je prends le temps de vérifier en mono lorsque j’ai des sources funky (par exemple, des synth très larges, comme dans la dance ou la techno).

    -Si mon mix, en mono, n’est pas exactement le même, je ne m’en fais pas trop avec ça, tant que le “flavor” est cool en stéréo et que les éléments importants (kick/snare, voix, basse) sont ok en mono.

    -Perso, ça ne me dérange pas que, dans certains cas, les basses fréquences soient stéréo, tant que ça ne crée pas d’inconfort d’écoute. On peut faire des effets super intéressants dans certains cas.

    -Comme plusieurs le mentionnent, pour la musique de club, c’est très important de vérifier la mono. J’ai oublié ce point et je m’en excuse.

    -Après, pour la question des téléphones et des enceintes mono: comme dis plus haut, tant que les éléments importants (voix/mélodie, bass, kick/snare) sont ok, ça ne me dérange pas que ça soit différent du mix stéréo, dans la mesure où il n’y a pas de fuck majeur de phase. C’est correct si pour vous, c’est très important, je comprends et respecte votre opinion.

    -“Un bon mix mono ne sera que meilleur en stéréo”: oui et non. Perso, je suis toujours au service de l’émotion avant d’être au service de la technique. Je préfère faire un mix imparfait ou moins compatible en mono si c’est pour créer un univers qui va mettre en valeur l’émotion de la chanson. Beaucoup de mixs de chansons que j’adore ne sont pas particulièrement compatible en mono…

    -À ce que je sache, les radios FM, web et satellite diffusent en stéréo. Les radio-réveil sont souvent mono, j’en convient.

    -Si le mix en mono est une chose hyper importante pour vous, c’est très bien. C’est pour ça que je trouve intéressant d’avoir votre avis sur la chose. Ce n’est pas parce que mon point de vue est divergent de l’approche traditionnelle que j’ai tout faux pour autant.

    Mixer une chanson en mono pour ensuite finaliser en stéréo n’est pas une méthode que j’ai développé et je n’en ressens pas présentement le besoin. Après plus de 12 ans dans le métier, je me garde de dire que je ne le ferai pas dans le futur, parce que ma façon de travailler est en constante évolution. Ce n’est pas parce que ce ne m’est pas utile que ça ne le sera pas pour vous, alors je vous encourage à expérimenter avec cette technique.

    Je sais que ça prends 2 minutes pour vérifier un mix en mono à la fin, mais mon propos dans la vidéo est de dire que si le mix est un peu différent, voire un peu moins bon, ça ne me dérange pas vraiment. Il n’y a personne qui va mourir, mon mix n’est pas mauvais pour autant et il ne serait pas nécessairement meilleur si j’avais mixé d’abord en mono. Il serait différent.

    DONC. Vérifiez en amont les problèmes de phase et faite un petit checkup en mono à la fin si vous avez doutes. Après, il ne faut pas oublier que la vie est un fleuve qui ne s’arrête pas, alors allez vite faire de la musique! Je m’excuse d’avance si je ne réponds pas à tous vos commentaires, j’ai un canot à prendre. ;)

    How And Why To Mono Your Low End - Tech Tips Volume 32


    Watch More Here!:

    This week we're back with another set of Tech Tips, this time in Logic Pro with new tutor Rory Webb from Hyper Production.

    Working under aliases such as Bailey and Knightley which, focuses more on electronic music, Rory has also been involved in sessions with the likes of David Guetta, Adele and Clean Bandit, all but to name a few and gained a significant amount of experience in many fields, from DJ’ing & Producing to Engineering & Teaching! So it’s fair to say, he knows a thing or two about music.

    Over these ten videos, Rory looks at some of the fundamental ways you can improve the sound of each element of your tracks so they really cut through the mix. From EQing vocals and creating your own unique layered kicks to understanding the importance of send/return fx and using compression, these tips and tricks will help you get the most out of your tunes and really make them shine ready to be played to a wider audience.

    Although this course is in Logic Pro, as with all our courses, these techniques can be applied to any DAW.

    Check it out and get the lowdown on how to polish your tracks and make them stand out above the rest!

    Tips for manipulating the stereo width of a mono source (viola) by using mid-side EQ & multiband compression.

    - Avid Pro Tools
    - FabFilter Pro-Q
    - FabFilter Pro-MB


    Matthew Weiss here. We're gonna discuss a string recording and engineering practice I did. It can be applied to other instruments but I just so happened to do it on solo viola. I wanted to give the viola some stereo spread because of the way it was going to live in the mix. I didn't want it to have a strong central mono compatible sound like a lead. I wanted to fill out space. I recorded the viola with two microphones side by side and chose mics that were different in terms of tonality. The first was a condenser and sounded like this:

    [viola + condenser microphone]

    The other was a ribbon and sounded like this:

    [viola + ribbon microphone]

    You can hear the texture of the top-end of the ribbon is a bit brassier, and there's more fundamental tone with the ribbon. The condenser is a bit more presence range. More open sounding. Here's what they sound like summed.

    [strings + ribbon & condensor microphone summed]

    The mics are close together so there's a bit of a phase and frequency thing going on. That's what's creating the change in tonality. It's not a dramatic change in tonality, but it does add a bit of depth and take away some solidity.

    Here they're panned apart.

    [strings + ribbon & condensor microphone panned apart]

    On different notes and different parts, the weighting of where the viola lives seems to move around in the stereo field. Almost like a frequency-dependent auto-panner. We'll use that to our benefit to create a very wide big sound from a single viola.

    First thing I'll do is pull up the FabFilter Pro-Q. One of the things that's cool about the FabFilter Pro-Q is you can not only do a traditional left and right EQ on it, but also a mid-side EQ. What I'm going to do is boost the mid tone — the mid signal fundamental.

    [viola + mid EQ boost]


    [viola + mid EQ boost]

    The movement on the side, the different in the side is not really changing but the mid tone I'm giving more weight. And the side tones, I'm giving that harmonic presence energy up around 1k. That's sort of where you hear the floaty glowiness of the tone.

    [viola + side EQ boost]

    If you're wearing headphones you'll definitely notice the difference. Even in speakers I think you can notice it subtly, what you really hear is you hear that movement of the frequency energy a little bit more pronounced. The other thing I've got going on here is I've — there's also a mid-side function on this — when you switch into mid side mode, you can lean the side weighting so I have it leaned a little bit more so that the sides are a little louder relative to the mid, and then in response I'm turning up the overall signal because it spreads it out, it doesn't just gain the sides laterally.

    [viola with and without mid-side EQ boost]

    I'm big on things that don't sound dramatically different but add some life and energy. The recording was good sounding to begin with. I don't really need to do much to the viola, but by doing these subtler tweaks, you don't hear a huge difference but you feel more life pop into the string capture.

    I kind of like the brassy texture from the bow hairs. That super treble. That can become piercing and overwhelming if you pump the treble up, so I'm using a multi-band compression, again Fab Filter Pro-MB. And what I'm doing is using the compressor so when there's a lot of treble in the strings, there's no gain to the treble because it's bringing the gain back down to a neutral position. As the treble starts to die off, the compressor begins to release and the gain on the treble that I've set starts to show up. You get a more consistent treble sound and the bow hair sound becomes more obvious.

    [viola with and without multiband compression]

    Once more.

    [viola with and without multi-band compression]

    There's a bit more movement in the treble range going across the stereo field. That's because the FabFilter Pro MB has this band split stereo imager. Wherever you've split the frequency band, it can adjust the stereo perception of that individual band. I'm pulling the mid down on the treble, and using the output to compensate. I'm boosting the side treble, not the whole side, just the treble. This helps increase that sense of movement without screwing around with the fundamental tone of the viola.
