  • Fix a poorly recorded closet vocal

    Can't afford a professional studio? Need to turn a closet-recorded vocal into ear candy? We'll show you how to get the best results out of any situation.

    Does compression and limiting confuse you? We'll walk you through the various compression settings and show you techniques particularly effective for hip-hop mixing.

A word from Matthew

Hi, I'm Matthew Weiss, a mixing and recording engineer from Philadelphia.

I've mixed a lot of hip-hop records, including songs for Snoop Dogg, Gorilla Zoe, Arrested Development, Dizzee Rascal, Gift of Gab and J-Son.

I'm excited to share the techniques I've developed over the years, and my goal here is to help you elevate the quality of your mixes, no matter what circumstances or gear you're working with.

In addition to these videos, I write articles for The Pro Audio Files and encourage you to check those out. Of course, email us if you have any questions.
