How/Where to get better at mixing

Hey all, NaGuul here,

Mixing tracks seems to be a broad topic, with a lot of feeling involved, but I'm pretty sure that there are a lot of good practices out there, that will help me getting better mix.

To introduce myself, I'm a french guitarist for about 15 years, and I got into composing metal prog tracks on my free time. I love writing, I love the process of materializing what's in my brain, but now I feel trapped because I can't get thing to sound like I want.

I tried to find some info on the net, but i couldn't really find any deep tutorial on how mixing really works.

So I'm asking here, where should I start, where can I learn the fundamentals, I have a lot of questions, so much that I don't want to flood this fresh topic

And last but not least, I don't want to have answers like "Do that because it works", I really want to know why it works. When I learnt about double tracking, I spent a lot of time searching why it works, what is the physical answer of this question.

Thanks in advance for your time, and I hope to have great debate with you around here.

Have a good day !

Reading,, learning your tools and practicing are the ways. It will take some time, years and then some... it will not happen in a week or a month.

After you learn what your tools are used for and you learn what each setting does for all your effects and dynamic controlled processors, you can dial the sound you have for that track that you have in your head

Thanks Unclenny, this blog looks amazing. I read some articles and this was exactly what I was looking for, a solid baseline to start from.

And thanks CJ for the kind words.
