Who wants a Christmas present?

I’ll be giving away a Christmas present for all the good people on my mailing list… It’s a another PDF guide in the same vein as the ‘Mixing tools reference guide’.

This one’s called ‘Using space in the mix’, and it covers a wide range of ways to use space. It includes:

  • Width (panning, stereo width, mid/side balance, delays, other stereo processing)
  • Depth (volume, tone, diffusion)
  • How to use space in the mix (foreground, background, super foreground, narrow, wide, super wide)
  • Putting it all together

Some of you might recognise a few of the topics that I’ve written about before. There are also some new topics that I haven’t yet written about. The whole thing isn’t just a re-hashing of blog posts – it’s been written from scratch as an integrated guide. All the topics relate to each other, and work together in a way that I don’t do in individual blog posts.


(P.S. if you’re not yet on the email list, simply use the ‘EMAIL SUBSCRIPTION’ section near the top-right of this page).

    Great gift Kim

  6. @James williams
    Thanks James!


  7. I use RSS to follow your blog and email for email. It’s a pity, your guide sounds very useful.

    If you want, you can bypass the blog signup and join the mailing list directly:

    If you use that link to sign up, you won’t get the weekly blog emails – just the additional stuff I send to the email list. Such as these extended guides.

    It’s a very low-volume list, so you don’t have to worry about it flooding your inbox.


  9. @Kim – ah thanks, done. Matt.
