Over the years, I've compiled helpful resources to build my own version of a curriculum. I use and rewatch these videos often and in the interest of sharing what I think is valuable, I've compiled this list. Please enjoy and if you'd like to work with me, I'd love to be a part of your record.
Bob Power is a legendary engineer who's worked with artists like A Tribe Called Quest, D'Angelo, and The Roots. This is one of my favorite videos. He spends a lot of time discussing how to think about mixing, which gets overlooked in so many other videos. Start here. You won't regret it.
Watch this whole channel here. Behind the Speakers is run by Jason Moss who is one of the many YouTube educators in the audio world. The thing that separates Jason is that he explains things in many different ways so even if you don't get it the first time, he's going to explain it in a way you can understand. I bought his mixing course on his website and found it to be one of the best investments I've made.
Do you have a favorite record? Google who the engineer was. They likely have made an appearance on this free show. It's primarily focused in the edutainment category. But this bootleg channel showing early episodes contains legendary mixer Dave Pensado giving a lot of great tips/tricks. There's a lot to consume here, so add it to your podcast list.
Run by Fab Dupont (JLo, Shakira, André 3000), Puremix.net has a membership plan. But you can also just buy individual videos. From recording to mastering there are industry leaders on this site teaching their techniques. My favorite mixer (Mick Guzauski) has a couple videos and it's a joy to watch him do his thing.
While their plugins are expensive, the info provided in their instructional videos are incredibly informative. Especially when it comes to understanding why certain mix techniques are used. Check out their website for the videos!
Created by Warren Huart, Produce Like A Pro is one of the most popular edutainment YouTube channels in audio engineering. Warren is a friendly teacher and goes into every aspect of working in audio. Some videos on his channel are interviews with industry leaders, others fall into the education category. This channel is a bit like a thrift store, where there is a lot to browse through and not all of it will be valuable, but it's free information so it's hard to take issue with it.
