House of Kush is the one!
I think that House of Kush bloke is a bit over-rated tbh. Just because he codes his own plugins he thinks he's clever. Well he's not. And I don't like the thing he wears around his neck either. Sad!

Just who does he think he is? Some kind of mixing guru? Just take a look at his output:

Some ok videos, ok, but still not sure about that thing he wears around his neck. It's very distracting! He's also very handsome with a strange and rare charisma. Who needs that when they are learning about the ideal EQ curve? Not me! And you probably don't, either!

I think a better place for beginners to start would be this channel by our very own DJ Warmonger: ... 2YQ/videos

He covers the basics.

And he doesn't wear anything funny around his neck that distracts me.

If pushed, I would say both have merit.

Here’s the thing, after you learned a bunch of basics like knowing what each knob means/does on an eq, compressor, saturator, delay, reverb (and you alteady know these by watching any channel you already follow), the rest is just work and ear-training that no tutorial can do for you unless you spend hours working.

There is a long thread on the GS forum where John Hanes, partner of Serban Ghenea (the best mixing engineer of the last 20 years) debunks a sh*load of myths in the music mixing like no one else ever did - because (opposite to all youtube channels and blogs) he’s not advertising products. He’s a worldclass engineer not endorsing any products. The information there is so clean, simple, elegant and brutally honest. For me, it upped my workflow and mixing approach during a year of reading his continous contribution to that thread (and applying it) like no tutorials on mix with the masters or any yt channels did in over 3 years.

I can only recommend to read his input on there, there is a Q&A with John Hanes section and a “Serban Ghenea mixes - all ITB?” thread - they truly are something no one should ever skip to read. Cheers!

Produce Like a Pro and Dave Pensado for the technical stuff.
And, Kush for the right attitude/mindset

My 2 cents. Maybe ‘a little’ techno oriented, but very good tutors and theoretical backgrounds, not only showing ‘how to make this sound’. I learned a lot from them.

- Yalcin Efe/Mercurial Tones Academy
- Underdog Music School (Oscar from Brussels)
- You suck at producing (Underbelly)
- LNA does audio
- Rachel K Colliers channel
- Production Music Live
- Sinee/Björn Torwellen
At the beginning of something beautiful...

Mixing With Mike
Whitney Houston's engineer. Amazing credentials and validation.
House of Kush has concepts I never realised. I also like Colt Capperrune, he makes commercial recordings.

I prefer professional resources, anyone can start a channel with no credentials with financial gain in mind, I've seen similar dropping videos into forums and disappearing. There's a money to earned, here's a tutor who earned $75000 a month.
Currently trying to turn noise into music. :neutral: Is boutique the new old?

The ones that have the best selection of plants, quaint books and rustic items naturally positioned around their Keystep/module combos, not to mention the quality of the grain on the wooden table on which it all rests.

House of kush for me too. He's looking at music and not just sound.
His last video is veeery interesting (song analysis).

Best ideas in music productions comes from mistakes and experiments ,creating more mistakes :)
For example if you BY MISTAKE put a 16 note in a wrong place it probably become a 32 note anf create dynamic.
All the saturation and harmonic excitement devices are discovered by mistake :)
I prefer to watch random guys enthusiasts sharing ideas than super pro doing tutorials and repeating same 'techniques' for decades - where is surprise and innovations in that,music evolve,must be new ideas and sound.
When start to dealing with sound design i was driven by idea 'How better than me do it',now it's 'What better i can do,nobody else have done yet' :):):)
Cheers :)
