A Great Solution for Mixing in Headphones [VIDEO]

A Great Solution for Mixing in Headphones Mixing music in headphones can be tricky, but not impossible. If you think it can’t be done, I mixed my first EP Coco Cream with Headphones because hey, I was just starting to make music. For those who don’t know me I’m a Guatemalan based in Denver Colorado. I started making music after going to a festival called Semana de Musica Avanzada. Were I saw a video on how the Guatemalan Electronic music had started. I had 0 musical training or experience. So I decided to get Ableton live and a Midi Keyboard and figure it out. Soon after I figured out that it was not going to be easy. I saw music as a way to express feelings, emotions and connect with people. Now 10 years later I have released in labels like Global Underground, Babiczstyle, and Moody Recordings. I have been able to releases alongside artist’s likes of Robert Babicz, Xpansul, Jaceo, Jonas Tempel, Ben A and Rick Wade. I Love blending gritty organic sounds with Latin instrumentation, celebrating My Latin roots and bringing that uniqueness to my production. I served as Mentor for Redline ArtCorps a network of programs that support the arts at under-resourced schools in RedLine’s community of Five Points. By establishing strong connections between art, education, and the community, ArtCorps increases student’s opportunities for creative engagement in schools, allowing for a more rigorous and well-rounded education. I mentored Evan to learn how to produce music and channel his energy into music. During my period with Redline, I understood that passing down knowledge has more impact and that Is why I decided to start my YouTube channel journey and help people interested in making music in a non-technical way with videos about music production based on my experience and mistakes that I've made in my music production journey.
