Most of our students use their own tracks but if you don’t have materials we provide stems for Mixing and Mastering. We provide track stem in variety of different genres. Last two weeks of each Mixing/Mastering course is dedicated to mixing/mastering practice and shootouts: each student receives same stems and mix the track during two weeks, providing 1.0 mix version on first week class where we listen all the tracks and give feedback. On the second week students are submitting 2.0 mix that we listen during the class and give the feedback. Listening how different people mixed same track is highly beneficial for developing your mixing/mastering and ear training skills.
