#AudiotentTip 265. Critical Listening.


You can learn a lot by carefully listening to you favourite productions. Choose four or five of your favourites and listen to them from start to finish. Whilst listening, make notes on all of the elements. For example, how the drums sound, where they're positioned in the mix, the patterns used etc. You can learn a lot from this exercise and then implement your new findings into your own work.
