Craft Professional, Radio-Ready Mixes Using Only the Tools Available to You in CUBASE
Discover how you can bring your Mixing Skills to the next level by gaining full control of the tools you already have
Without Skills, not even the best mixing tools
out there are going to be able to help you.
If you’re tired of spending hundreds (or even thousands) of dollars on the latest over-hyped, flavor of the month plugin, only to find your mixes still don’t match what you hear on Spotify or the radio, this may be the most important message you read today.
Tell me if this rings a bell:
- I can’t get my vocals to pop in my mix
- My drums don’t sound punchy enough
- The high frequencies in my mix sound piercing
- My mixes don’t translate well to other systems
- My mixes sound muddy, there’s not enough clarity to hear the individual elements
- My mixes don’t sound as good as professional mixes
- I have trouble balancing the drums and the bass
- I spend hours mixing and don’t seem to get much accomplished
- I never know when my mix is done
I've been there, my friend!
I remember when I first started mixing, I had access to a bunch of plugins and was always looking for the new trend. Looking for THE plugins(s) that would make my mix sound PRO. While doing so, my skills were stuck at the same level. My focus wasn't at the right place and in the end, it slowed me down for way too long.
At some point I had to rethink my learning strategy and refocus from Tools to Skills. Learn the fundamentals from the bottom up and mixing techniques to increase my knowledge, increase my skills and become a better mixer. I realized that even if third party plugins are great, if I don't have the skills to begin with, it would be very hard to become the mixer I was hoping to be.
These days, we are blessed with the technology to create amazing music… in our bedrooms, basements, garages, and anywhere else we can put a computer.
We’re able to do things that past generations of studio owners could only dream about. And while it’s fun to debate the pros and cons of analog vs digital gear, the fact is, this technology allows us to create better-sounding mixes than at any other time in history. But this is a blessing and a curse.
With so many great options out there, making decisions becomes overwhelming.
Be honest… how many plugins do you have on your computer right now that you’ve never put on a mix? How many plugin versions of the 1176 have you bought over the years? How many reverb plugins do you have?
Paralysis by analysis quickly sets in when you’re faced with so many decisions over the course of a mix.
So what do you do when you’re not sure what the next step in your mix should be?
Many of us turn to YouTube. And there’s tons of great information out there on YouTube, but this also creates a problem…
The Dark Side of YouTube
You can find ANYTHING you want to learn on YouTube. And while that sounds positive, something not so positive starts to happen to your mixing…
You accumulate a huge arsenal of tactics and techniques…
...That may work in isolation, but won’t help you create a coherent mix when you put them together!
It’s kind of like cooking. If you were to take all the ingredients you need to bake a cake, and put them on your counter… they still wouldn’t be a cake!
You need a recipe that shows you how to combine them in just the right amounts and in just the right ways.
Believe it or not, the same thing applies to your mixes. You need a framework to put all those great tactics and techniques together, so they come out as a beautiful, radio-ready mix.
And that’s exactly what I’m going to give you.
WAIT! Before you buy
another plugin, read this...
What if I told you that everything you need to get full, balanced, powerful mixes… Is already in your DAW?
But first, there’s one more hurdle many of my students have to overcome before they start cranking out the best mixes of their lives...
The idea that they need another tool before they can really get their mixes to sound great.
They think that if they just had that new plugin, or the sweet piece of vintage hardware they saw on Reverb, it would give them the sound they have in their head.
But here’s the truth:
It’s not the tools that help you make a great mix…It’s the SKILLS.
And that’s exactly what you are going to learn!
Improving your SKILLS is the key to
get the mixes your dream of.
This is a step-by-step course that teaches you the fundamental skills, process, and workflow that you need to consistently put out top quality, radio-ready mixes, every time you sit down at your DAW.
You won’t ever have to wonder what to do next, what plugin to use, or how to dial it in for the best sound for your specific mix. You’ll find yourself finishing mixes faster than ever before… and sounding better than you ever thought possible.
Here’s How It Works
The best way to learn is by working alongside an experienced mentor who can explain not only what they are doing, but also the “why” behind it. While you won’t be sitting in a chair next to me as I mix a song, this course is the next best thing.
Throughout the course of over 11 hours of 4K HD video, you’ll look over my shoulder as I mix a full-band production of a modern rock song. Not only will you see my approach to mixing a song in great detail, but I’ll also take the time to explain the thought process behind what I’m doing.
This will give you a much greater understanding of the process than simply watching a mix and trying to copy the things I do. You’ll be learning the skills you need to take a mix from start to finish. Skills that you can carry over to any song that you work on in the future.

(Barrie, ONT - CANADA)
Nicely done young man, very informative, very resourceful, very precise and very refreshing to be shown the in's and out's without the needless compulsive dialog of other tutors.
And this course clearly shows you don't need to over expense yourselves with third-party plugins, to obtain a studio quality/radio friendly mix. The listener isn't concerned if you've used the latest overpriced plugin to achieve a super duper mix. All they want is quality of product, which this course and yourself clearly deliver, in bucket loads ....

I've been mixing seriously for around 3 years and I have been a fan of Chris Selim since discovering his YouTube Channel around the same time. This course "The Ultimate Cubase Mixing Masterclass" blew me away. I thought I had a pretty good understanding of what I was doing using Cubase. Wrong! Watching Chris do a live mix, while showing you his tips and tricks will help out your mixing workflow tremendously in Cubase. I will continue to go back and watch over and over again to soak up all the education that is offered here. Thanks Chris for all the education you continue to provide.

This course proves that mixing is not to be feared but can actually be fun. Chris demonstrates how getting a song to sound amazing can be done with everything that’s already included in Cubase. His teaching style is easy to follow - he talks you through his decisions and provides a clear roadmap. I used to fear mixing but now I feel confident enough to try out my new skills on one of my songs! This is exciting!

Faithful to his style on his YouTube channel, in his Cubase Mixing Masterclass, Chris presents all topics in a very orderly, structured, didactic and enjoyable way that serves not only to follow the course, but also to use it as future guide and reference, where topics are quick and easy to find.
Personally, although I have studied a lot of material before, I feel that in this course I have learned to handle things whose solution is not always evident, what has given me new criteria for facing mixing problems.
For example, how to improve a mix attacking little issues on different instruments or busses and not only on the master. That is far beyond of what you could find on YouTube. Chris answers the question related to what to look for, how to face the problem and which alternatives I have available to apply or try.
The course is very complete and for sure enjoyable by both beginners and advanced ones.

Chris finally released something we all have been waiting for: “The Ultimate Cubase Mixing Masterclass”. If the title wasn’t this long I would add “...and the only one you will ever need”. Besides the mixing philosophy and blend of different techniques (such as: top-down mixing, rear buss parallel compression, mixing into a limiter, and much much more...), you will also learn how to save your hard earned money by utilizing maximum out of every single plugin that comes within Cubase.
“The Ultimate Cubase Mixing Masterclass” with over 14hours of beautifully recorded videos (and still growing) will expand your knowledge, regardless if you are a newbie or advanced user. If you are passionate about Cubase Mixing, this is the best gift you can give to yourself. “

Profound. As beginner to intermediate music producer using Cubase, this course will give you a solid foundation for your mix work, but is also full of wonderful nuggets of special information that we have sometimes seen on Chris' YouTube channel.

Definitely my recommendation for the "course of the year" - if you wonder which one to get and you are working on Cubase, this is definitely the one!
