🎚️ Friday Fader: Chaos to clarity in 4 simple steps

Wudup savages:

We’ve had some vibrant forum discussions this week, plus some bangin’ Member Spotlights, priceless product reviews, and several badass new members joining the fun! Here’s your peek at the week…

🌪️ Nathaniel kicked off our new Mixing forum pinging the group for advice on finding clarity in chaos (fantastic mix discussion title, btw ⚡️). Check out this 4-step chaos-clarifying process I use on every mix, plus helpful insights from fellow members too!

🔍 Jeremy shared two excellent ‘nearly finished’ mixes to kick off our Member Spotlight forum. He’s focused on making bold mix choices and getting bass instruments to knock on tiny phone speakers (aren’t we all these days). Give both these great songs a listen and add something fun and/or helpful in the comments! #bjorky

👋 Say hey to our newest members: Andrew Feltenstein, Michael Ghegan, Roy Matz, Evan Bakke, Nathaniel Earl, Stuart Roholt, Jeremy Roye, Nikolaj Flor Rotne, and Ike Sturm! Stoked you’re here.

📝 Take a moment to fill out the new profile fields so we can get to know each other better! Wanna know what my “desert island” piece of studio gear is these days? Check my profile, brah 🤙

🌟 And if you’re enrolled in either of the courses and feel like writing a short, honest review it would really help us out. Enormous heartfelt thank you to these two legends for writing such kind things!

Have a great Friday!

Faders forever,
