All the audio files are included with this course so you can follow along and mix the same songs that are in this course.
Included in this course is a FREE EQ frequency chart to help you with EQ-ing drums.
One of the secretes of achieving a punchy / lively drum sound is to use a technique called parallel compression. This one mixing technique will make a good drum mix sound GREAT!
We learn how to mix drums that are recorded both in a recording studio as well as a LIVE venue. Both have their challenges and there are lots of tips on how to make the drums sound amazing and we cover all of it.
We compare the sounds differences between mixing drums with both stock plugins that came with your DAW to 3rd party plugins from manufactures like Waves, Slate Digital, Universal Audio and others.
Regardless of the DAW you have everything in the course can be applied to your setup. Same thing with plugins. You can apply the teachings in this course and achieve amazing results.

"Hey David - I just finished watching Mixing With Analog Style Plugins Made Easy and all I can really say is WOW! I really have no words for what I just watched. all I can say is thank you very much David for your products are always affordable and so helpful. I own all the Made Easy courses and every time I re-watch them I catch something new. You have helped me enormously over the last year as I knew nothing about mixing and mastering and now when I am talking with my friends and producers I can hold my own. Cheers David and God Bless "
"Dear Mr Vignola - I just finished taking EQ and Compression Made Easy as well as Mixing Made Easy Vol 1 & 2. these are by far comprehensive video training series on mixing I have come across. I really appreciate the natural work flow and your presentation goes way beyond the dry technical facts. what is most impressive is how you share your professional experience and knowledge with us in a detailed yet easy to understand way. I simply can't thank you enough."
"Hey David - just a quick note. After watching both of your mixing series Mixing Made Easy Vol 1 & 2, I'm am blown away by the amount of quality content. It has transformed my mixes already....seriously. At $127 per course, you aren't charging enough for sure. The "Early Reflections" section in vol 2 simply blew me away! Anyway, thanks for what you do."
"Hi David - I have recently purchased your MADE EASY bundle which includes EQ, Compression and Mixing Vol 1. My wife actually bought these for me for Christmas! I have been listening to and purchasing more or less the same courses from a few other really great sound engineers and have kid of taught myself from their videos. But yours, I like a lot more. From the moment I began your videos i knew you were speaking my language. Down to earth, no frills attached and nothing fancy. your candid way of explaining things hits a home run with me, and I can well bet thousands of others as well. I am here to urge you to please carry on with your videos. I for one enjoy them tremendously and at such an affordable price there is simply nothing better. Keep up the excellent work!"
