When we think of a powerful mix, we expect it to be rich, deep, and wide.
But sadly, most people mixing never get the wide mixes they want.
They might have stereo instruments and tracks, but always end up with a “Big Mono” feel in their mix…
Where there are a ton of stereo tracks, but the mix just feels like one stale block of sound.

It’s about using your panning knobs correctly in your mixes.

You’ll discover some sneaky automation tricks you can use for real width in your mixes, and an easy hack to start getting more stereo separation when mixing.
