How to Create a Cheap, Battery-Powered Production If you work at an after-school music program, maybe this dilemma will sound familiar: Your students want to learn how to make music, but maybe not the kind they find in their school's classical, marching band, or choral curricula. The Music & Youth Initiative came up with a cost-effective way to get powerful, contemporary music-making tools into the hands of students. The battery-powered workstation the group devised has everything students need to create modern pop, hip-hop, R&B, or other current music, and it will cost just about $1,000 total. Music & Youth is not new to such endeavors. For 15 years, the organization has been launching and supporting music programs for children in low-income neighborhoods. Their Music Clubhouse locations even have full-fledged recording studios on the premises.

It’s hard to hear the subtle differences between different attack and release settings—especially without knowing what you’re listening for.

The 'Mixing Secrets' Free Multitrack Download Library Below is a list of multitrack projects which can be freely downloaded for mixing practice purposes. All these projects are presented as ZIP archives containing uncompressed WAV files (24-bit or 16-bit resolution and 44.1kHz sample rate). For maximum mixdown flexibility, the contributors have made every effort to provide audio ‘raw’, in other words without additional effects or processing (beyond treatments printed during tracking/editing). When importing the tracks, just make sure all the files start at exactly the same moment in time within your DAW’s timeline. (Download problems?) In addition to the Full Multitrack packages, there are also many quick-download Edited Excerpt versions (usually featuring the song’s biggest chorus) which provide ‘bite-sized’ mixing assignments well-suited to classroom use.
