Michael Brauer Mixing Masterclass


Join seven-time Grammy Award–winning mix engineer Michael Brauer in this Mixing Masterclass hosted by Sweetwater Studios. Michael will take you through his unique approach to mixing with emotion, his in-the-box “Brauerize©” technique featuring multiple bus compressors for his signature sound. He’ll share his multi-parallel vocal compression approach to achieving intimate, engaging, and exciting vocals, and he’ll teach you how he keeps an open and creative mindset when diving into each new mix.

Michael’s signature sound can be heard on many hit records by artists such as Coldplay, John Mayer, the Rolling Stones, Luther Vandross, Aretha Franklin, Bob Dylan, Paul McCartney, My Morning Jacket, Ben Folds, Grizzly Bear, James Bay, Prefab Sprout, Leonard Cohen, Pet Shop Boys, Dream Theater, and Elle King, to name a few. We are excited to give you this opportunity to join Michael in the studio and learn his Grammy-winning techniques.
