In the song I used for this first video, the beat wasnʼt mixed too terribly balance- wise. However, it sounded way too narrow (mono), and I felt like the drums were too quiet. The changes I made to this track were more drastic than what I normally have to do.
Still, the key is to be subtle! Donʼt overdo it! Watch and listen to what I do—try to understand why I do what I do. Donʼt copy me exactly, instead let my mixing techniques influence your ear.
