The 'Mixing Secrets' Free Multitrack Download Library:
Suggestions For Mixing Newbies!

Now that the multitrack library is so expansive, I'm starting to 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.

All downloads from this site are provided free of charge for educational purposes only, and the material contained in them should not be used for any commercial purpose without the express permission of the copyright holders.

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.
