Mixing sounds to create a cohesive and inspiring piece of music is an art. Join MPV trainer and Pro Tools expert Mike Watkinson as he reveals his favorite mixing techniques and shows you how you can bring your musical canvases to life...
Just like a painter who carefully chooses his colors and brushes to create his art, a mixer listens for the right balance between the many sonic elements that make up a piece of music to create an unforgettable listening experience. In this 40-video tutorial, Pro Tools 10 "artiste" Mike Watkinson shows you how to create an aural masterpiece by using PT’s rich tool palette.

When mixing a music project, an engineer has to be able to hear the big picture one moment and then quickly zero in on a specific color or texture the next. Mike begins his 40-video exploration with a deep dive into mixing, tracks and Pro Tools' unique Group features which helps break down and organize the various elements of your musical painting. He shows you how to create, activate and deactivate groups and how to manage the members of each group of tracks during the evolution of a mix. Then Mike shows you how Automation and Effects can make your tracks breathe with musical expression and really shine within the context of the song.

Making sure your sounds travel through Pro Tools' virtual mixer efficiently is crucial, and Mike is right there with you as you learn all about signal path, sub-mixes and how to properly configure your sends and returns so that your musical parts blend perfectly. You'll also see the powerful AudioSuite plugins in action adding color and depth to your mix. Master Watkinson wraps it all up with more automation tips & tricks and shows you how to enhance the mix through the use of automation playlists.
