Why We Made This

Almost daily at Warp Academy we get asked questions about mix width. From high hats to the master channel, width is an elusive concept for many. Having identified this issue, we created a course to answer these super common questions, dispel popular myths, and overall take the mystery out of widening your mix. Our goal: the ultimate course to accelerate your knowledge of mix width, making it both EASY and FUN. 

It can seem daunting to get your music as wide as your hero’s. Honestly, we’ve been there ourselves. You might have heard it’s as simple as cranking one expensive plug-in on your master track, only to find out that it left your mix hollow and wimpy. Exciting mix width can seem unachievable — available only to those with out-of-this-world budgets. 

But, luckily it’s not! The secret to creating wide mixes comes down to assembling many small (but POWERFUL) skills. You also need to know which tactics lead to unfavorable results (even if it’s not super obvious at first). We made this course to clear things up, once and for all…
