Waveform Wednesday: Get Your Mix On

Hi everyone,
In honor of tomorrow being the Guerilla Production Techniques forum on mixing, here are some tracks to practice with. Click here to download isolated tracks of a re-do of Red Hot Chili Pepper's Snow (The "hey oh" song). This download is a zip file that needs to be un-archived, and it is a folder containing audio files. Import these into whatever DAW you prefer, all right to bar 1. The tempo is 105 bpm.

Try adjusting volume and panning to create a space for everything, and try some guitar and bass amp plug-ins. Listen to the original track and compare.

Read up on all these Sound on Sound articles on Secrets of the Mix Engineers for tips.
