What you will learn

You’ll balance the mix of twelve songs, covering a range of four genres: Pop, Rock, Hip Hop and House.

The starting balance is randomly set each time you load a challenge - it’s your task to adjust the faders to get a well-balanced mix. Your unique balance will be scored out of 100, based on how I approached the track.

If you don’t pass a level: you’ll be able to preview my mix, as a reference, and try to match it. If you still get stuck, you’ll get more guidance on how you can improve the balance.

With practice, this knowledge will transform your ability to get a pro-sounding balance in your own mixes.

As a producer who has long valued the benefits of ear training, this is SUPERB (and sometimes frustrating) training! This has enabled me to get to know my monitors in a new way and appreciate the value of simple balancing.

I think Ultimate Producer is the foundation to quick development as a sound engineer... I’m really impressed. I’m making it required for any sound interns under me. Great job!

Balancing Channels is by far the best way to train the correct volume ratios of the individual main channels of a song. And for a Metalhead like me, it is also interesting to think outside the box and to train the balance of other styles of music too.

I’ve been working with Balancing Channels for a short time now but in that time, I see the benefits of training the ear to hear and recognize a well balanced mix from different genres of music.
