In these five independent parts, Meyerson discusses and demonstrates some of his favourite mixing techniques for a variety of common tasks – enhancing percussion, adding size to low end, spreading and softening a mono signal, stereo field manipulation, and controlling frequencies with multiband dynamics processing. He reveals his preferred plug-in choices, suitable alternatives, parameter settings used, techniques of audio delay, duplication, and pitch-shifting, the '20% rule', his mix buss chain, and more very useful nuggets of information!
