Rough Mixing & How To Deliver Your Song
In Part ONE of this course we go over the easiest, most efficient way to get a good rough mix going.
Why should you care about that?? For purposes such as- pitching your song to a fellow collaborator or producer, just so it’s more enjoyable for you to listen to, or even sending out to your future mixing engineer.
Now that you have your song sounding pretty darn good and you’re ready to hand it over to a mixing engineer, we move on to Part TWO where we learn what that really means, and how you should go about collecting your files and getting them ready to be sent out.
Finally, at the end of each Part, I offer my special “Album Rec.” corner, where I recommend an album I think you should listen to, and how it relates with the lesson we’d just learned.

Shachar Boussani, aka Shak, started as a bass player at the age of 16. What started as jam sessions at friends’ basements quickly grew to become a clear lifelong passion. Shak then went on to producing music with other artists and singer and even composing for film. Years of producing and recording independent artists in all types of different studios, eventually led Shak to a keen set of skills perfectly suited for mixing music, such as a great balance between the love of the art and the love of the technology, understanding the artists’ language, patience, organization skills, adaptability, and more. With over a decade of experience, Boussani got to work with all different types of artists in many different genres- from Jazz to Hip-Hop, from RnB to Rock, and from Alternative to mainstream Pop music. Shak is of the firm belief that when all is said and done, if the artist’s message is true, it does not matter which dialect they choose to use in the universal language of music!
