Welcome to The Art Of Mixing, a blog around electronic music production and mixing.

My name is Samuel Deléglise, I am a French electronic music producer, sound designer and mix engineer.

I have been making electronic music for about 20 years now. I started out at the age of 11 by creating my first tunes with FastTracker on an Amiga 500, then moved to Cubase on a PC in the early 2000s (with some Reason here and there) and finally started using Ableton Live when it came out.

I have always been interested in the various aspects of music production and mixing, as well as sound design so I thought that sharing my knowledge in these fields could be beneficial to people who are looking for information on these topics.

To see what I do musically or professionally, you can check out my portfolio which contains demos of some tracks I have produced along with samples of remixes and masters I have done.

The Art Of Mixing is a blog dedicated to electronic music production and mixing. I’ll publish tutorials, articles, reviews and share some of the secrets of the music industry with you.

I also offer mixing and mastering services for artists and bands. If you would like to make a professional recording of your songs, feel free to contact me.

The Art Of Mixing is a blog created to share and learn with you about the art of mixing.

I’m Alex, a producer and engineer based in Berlin. My music is influenced by techno, house and electronica. I engage my music production skills on my own productions, but also for other artists. The Art Of Mixing is the place where I share tricks, tips and ideas that I have learned and continue to learn over time.

The Art Of Mixing is also a place to share ideas and thoughts: if you want to contribute to this blog and share your own experience with me and other readers, please send me an email!

I’m trying to put together a set of articles that can help you realize the potential of your mix. By this I mean, I’ll be talking about ways of thinking and working that can help you get the most out of your music.

I will not be teaching you how to use your favourite DAW or plugins, but rather how to approach your music in general and how to get the best out of it.

I hope these articles will help you understand some common pitfalls and give you an idea of how other producers are approaching their own mixes.

In short, this website is about the art of mixing: my approach to mixing music, some tips for beginners and an insight in what goes on behind the scenes in real world production environments.

Most people consider mixing to be the art of putting tracks together in a way that sounds good. The more technical among us also consider it an art to get the levels right, make sure the panorama is well balanced and that there are no impedances in the frequency range of our ears. However, those are not the only aspects of mixing. In this article, we will look at the basic principles of audio engineering and how they apply to producing electronic music.

For new producers who have just started producing this may all seem too much, but don’t worry – you don’t need to know everything at once. On top of that, most daw’s (digital audio workstations) have built-in effects and plugins that will help you with your mixdown. You can start by using these presets and gradually tweak them until you understand what they are doing.

Sound & frequency

Let’s start with the basics, sound & frequency. Sound is created when there is a disturbance in our atmosphere. This disturbance creates waves which travel through the air until they reach our ear drums. Our brains then translate these waves into sounds. The higher or lower a wave is, the higher or lower a sound will be perceived as being by our ears.

Frequency refers to how

Electronic music is music that employs electronic musical instruments and electronic music technology in its production, an electronic musician being a musician who composes and/or performs such music. In general a distinction can be made between sound produced using electromechanical means and that produced using electronic technology. Examples of electromechanical sound producing devices include the telharmonium, Hammond organ, and the electric guitar. Purely electronic sound production can be achieved using devices such as the theremin, sound synthesizer, and computer.

During the 1920s and 1930s, electronic instruments were introduced and the first compositions for electronic instruments were made. By the 1940s, magnetic audio tape allowed musicians to tape sounds and then modify them by changing the tape speed or direction, leading to the development of electroacoustic tape music in the 1940s, in Egypt and France. Musique concrète, created in Paris in 1948, was based on editing together recorded fragments of natural and industrial sounds. Music produced solely from electronic generators was first produced in Germany in 1953…
