Introduction To Mixing & Mastering with Abe Duque

  • 343 Labs 243 Canal Street New York United States (map)

Techno legend, producer, DJ, and 343 Labs instructor Abe Duque presents an exclusive introduction to Mixing and Mastering. Since the rapid technological developments of digital audio workstations and software plugins, Mixing and Mastering has become infinitely more affordable, allowing producers to achieve mixes that rival those created at multi-million dollar studios. In his masterclass Duque will give an overview of the essential steps involved to achieve a clean mix, from gain staging, compression, eq-ing, sound coloration, and time-based effects such as reverb and delay to create depth and ambience. This masterclass is a great introduction for producers just getting started with mixing, as well as providing creative techniques for more experienced producers looking for a structured mixing approach, best practices, and mixing workflows.

With a career that started in the early days of house and techno at New York’s notorious Limelight, Abe Duque has been releasing tracks since the early 90s, on labels such as International Deejay Gigolo, Tension, Abuse Industries, and Rapture, as well as remixing tracks for household names such as Chemical Brothers and Pet Shop Boys, Abe later turned his attention to education, where he is now considered one of the most respected educators in his field.

Open House: 6-7pm
Masterclass: 7-8:30pm
