The 'Mixing Secrets' Free Multitrack Download Library Suggestions For Newbies!
Now that the multitrack library is so expansive, I often get requests from mixing newbies asking for where they should best start off -- projects which are technically straightforward and require little real sound-salvage or rearrangement work. In response to this, I've put together this shortlist, roughly in order of difficulty so that people can work through them in series if they like. Bear in mind, though, that while a respectable mix of any of these projects shouldn't be too tricky, doing a great mix still takes considerable care and practice. For mixing tips and advice from me and many other mix engineers, head over to the Discussion Zone and check out the appropriate sub-forum -- or just follow the direct →Mixes and discussion link alongside each multitrack listing.
