How to Mix a Trap Beat in FL Studio

A step-by-step, over the shoulder method to get professional sounding beats! [FREE Video Series]

Still Struggling to get Quality Beats that Knock?

Like you, I struggled to get my beats to sound professional. I literally spent days at a time mixing just ONE beat and it still didn’t sound good. I was over complicating things and thought that in order to sound “pro”, it has to be complicated…Right?

NOPE! That’s Where I Was Wrong

In fact, the simpler I made things for myself, the better my beats sounded.

You Don't Need Expensive Plugins, to get an Expensive Sound

In order to mix a trap beat you don’t need the most expensive tools out there. I know there is a lot of hype around expensive plugins but the truth is that the tools you have matter LESS than the knowledge you acquire.

In this tutorial I used 95% FREE or stock plugins, not because I “had” to but because they did the job.

Let the other beat makers worry about how expensive their tools are while you worry about being creative.

It's Possible to Get Pro Mixes in FL Studio!

You can easily compete with the sound quality of top level producers, if you know what you are doing.  I'm going show you how to treat your projects like the pros do.

Just wanted to say "Great Job" on that tutorial..... Thanks for sharing. I've been mixing for about 4 years, and it's tough because some do not want to share (tips and tricks) whats been freely given to them. A lot of the well established engineers were taught by someone else, but then refuse to teach others . . . . Thanks Again . . . I will study this intently!!!!!lped!

Frequently Asked Questions

  • Q.Do I have to use FL Studio?

    A.No you don’t, but this course was designed with FL users in mind. All the principals can be applied to any DAW but the downloads and organization videos are specifically FL Studio related.

  • Q.Are you going to be teaching production as well?

    A.Unfortunately not.  This training focuses on helping you make your productions sound better but doesn’t teach you how to produce.

  • Q.Do I need to own any specific plugins?

    A.You don’t and I used 95% stock or FREE plugins in this training so you should be able to mimic exactly what I am doing.

    I do use 2 paid plugins in this training because I really think they add something special.  You aren’t obligated to buy them to get the same results but if you want to replicate my mix, you are going to need them.

  • Q.Why would this be more useful then any other training out there

    A.If you liked the quality of the beat in the video then you won’t be dissapointed.  Mostly my background is focused heavily on mixing as that is what I spent most, if not all, of my time doing.  A lot of other training is done by producers who are not mix engineers first.

    I also spend a big portion in the beginning of tutorial going over foundation mixing concepts that, when applied to every mix, will make you a smarter, more efficient beat maker with beat quality beats that rival the top producers.
