Mixing Techniques, Reverb Strategies, and Advanced Sound Design with Zen World

In this episode of The Sound.Academy Podcast we spoke with Zen World. Zen runs one of the largest music production channels on YouTube, teaching millions of producers each year. He also is the Founder of Evolution of Sound, and even teaches production at Symmetry Music Academy.

Zen does feedback streams with hundreds of music producers each week, so he’s very familiar with the challenges faced by new producers. In this episode, Zen talks at length about the two biggest mixing mistakes he hears new producers make.

We also discuss how to create a balanced mix on any setup, how to use delay and reverb like a pro, and even how to approach learning music theory.

Zen also breaks down some of the new sounds he made as a part of Evolution of Sound’s newest preset bank, Dirty Chicken. The pack is filled with unique and interesting tech-house sounds inspired by Dirtybird artists, and will definitely be a huge asset to any house producers using Sylenth1.
