This is a quick before and after video. It demonstrates a song mixed with the raw tracks: before effects are added. After you get a hold of the raw tracks, then add EQ, effects, and volume automation, as well as other mixing techniques. I would recommend watching this video, and hear the better sounding mix come through.
You can obtain these multi-tracks and many more here: from Mike Senior’s Website.
What you can learn from this video is how the mixing process improves the clarity. Also, it increases the multi-dimensional feel. Mixing heightens the punch of a song. The user will enjoy it more.
