还记得另一个混音教程"Mixing with Pros"吗？那位大师主要用的是Pro Tools，原理虽然一样，但对于咱们这些穷人们来说，工业标准Pro Tools真的是不太亲切（想享受的话至少要付几千块钱）~~就在这时候，咱们常用的Cubase/Nuendo的开发公司Steinberg为我们送上了一道大餐（呃。。。貌似对中国用户免费，哈哈哈 ），这一套混音教程可是Steinberg出的啊~酷毙死和牛犊的用户有福了！
About Internal Mixing
Internal Mixing is a platform-independent course that offers a wealth of information, hints and practical examples for mixing multitrack recordings within a computer. The step-by-step approach to mixing guides through a variety of techniques used by professional engineers to achieve the clarity and transparency often heard on CDs and DVDs. Internal Mixing uncovers the concepts behind proper placement of instruments within the mix. A powerful, yet three-dimensional sound is not achieved by usage of tons of expensive plug-ins but by separation of instruments and voices. Internal Mxing also shows that outstanding results can be achieved even without using expensive outboard gear, and just by making good use of the host application’s internal plug-ins.
Going step by step from understanding some of the concepts that can help form a great mix, Internal Mixing gudes through organizing workflow and the application of basic plug-ins like EQ and Compressors. Internal Mixing also covers the usage of DSP-based plug-ins and offline rendered plug-ins, e.g. for convolution reverb.
Internal Mixing provides exercises to supprt learning for the concepts involved. Each exercise can be followed step by step and guides through the chapters for a joyful and satisfying learning experience.
Internal Mixing has been filmed in HD-Video and uses latest codec technology. The 340 minutes of content on Volumes 1 and 2 as well as the screen capturing are provided in four languages – English, French, Spanish and German.
