In this tutorial we look into the mix and engineering techniques of a simple melodic techno song. We will explain summing the channels to optimise the elements, respecting the dynamic range available without compression in the main output.

Compression will be applied to some drum elements individually and to send busses. All of the elements of this song are composed using MIDI and virtual instruments included in Logic pro x (latest version).
Sidechain compression will be added to the main bass and melodic elements to create more movement. The side chain compression is triggered with the main kick drum via a ghost send bus, retuning to the compression signal via internal routing.
We also use an equaliser with high pass filter and automation to create movement using selective frequency filtering.
