This is the fourth episode of my series called Raw Fix My Mix! In this series, I reach out to people on my email list asking for a mix that they need help with. I pick a mix and set up a 1 on 1 video chat to discuss the recording process and what they struggle with when mixing. Next, I do my best to lay down a professional sounding mix that can compete with everything out there on the radio. I set up another 1 on 1 video chat and break down the mix explaining the things I did.
