Hey guys so I just started making music about two years ago and I've only played around with techno/house kind of stuff. The only program I use as of right now is reason 4 but Im working on getting protools. Anyway I don't have any friends who like making this kind of style of music so getting new information doesn't come as much as id like it too.
What I've been wondering lately is how to learn to mix well? Correct me if Im wrong but mixing is everything that has to do with compression, eq's, maximizers, stereo imager ect. right? I have played with these things in reason (mostly sidechain compression) and know they make a hugge difference if you know what your doing, which is what I want to learn. I've also heard that mixing and mastering is very different with electro dancey stuff then a lot of other genera's so not all the information applies the same. any information would help, thanks guys!
The sort of style I'm going for is electro house, for example you can check these songs out: Ika-zeros in love(remakerz remix), Deadmau5-some chords
