Get an in-depth perspective on how award-winning mix engineer and producer Hannes Bieger mixes some of the world’s biggest club records.
343 Labs and SAE present a full-day masterclass with Hannes Bieger on how he creates the “perfect mix”. Creating a good mix starts with working with high-quality sounds, and no matter how good you can mix, your mix will never sound good if your source material is inferior. Drum tuning is another important aspect in creating a good mix, making sure that the track is balanced harmonically. Hannes will demonstrate how he approaches his mixes, built on years of experience working on some of the biggest club records. He will share his personal tips and tricks that he has accumulated, from basic concepts such as training your ears and determining good sound to the nuts and bolts of EQ, compression, and limiting.
With a client list that includes the likes of Âme, Ben Klock, Dixon, Stephan Bodzin, and Tale of Us, Hannes Bieger is one of Europe’s most in-demand mixing engineers. In this in-depth masterclass, you’ll spend the day with Hannes as he breaks down the techniques he uses to mix some of the world’s biggest club records. Expect lots of detailed knowledge, both technical and philosophical.
This masterclass will take place at Riverside Studios in Berlin and can be attended live, or attended remotely via live stream. Please note, if you are joining via live-stream, the recording will only be available in your account for 48 hours.
