    Before we proceed with our next set of videos I thought it might be useful for you guys to have access to this Interactive Frequency Chart It has a lot of information that will be helpful as we continue into the next section on mixing. Keep in mind that you will need to allow scripts in order to be able to interact with it.

    Mixing
    Our next series of tutorials will focus on mixing. Since this is where the releases have stopped by Wickiemedia we will have to wait for continuation of this season. Please be patient as it takes him a long time to make the tutorials particularly because of their quality.

    Frito bro, glad you're here to join us. Thanks so much for all your kind words my friend and let me be the first to congratulate you in your new role as Dean Of Girls Locker Rooms. Go out there and make us proud, we're counting on you.

    Apparently I tried to introduce too much awesomeness at once and I may have fried a circuit on AudioSex. :rofl: However you helped out just with your presence and you don't even know it. Thanks to your post I was able to finally get those last 8 videos on page 2 which should alleviate some of the bottlenecks. I don't think the pictures are the root cause as I removed some and wasn't all that impressed with the change. Also your suggestion is great for our users and I use it myself but I am on Chrome right now because it's faster for me to post and do all the searches I need. Honestly I prefer Firefox because of the customizability but I've been having some problems with Flash that are exacerbated by the use of said browser. I need to install an extension like that in Chrome because it's so annoying when you're working on a page in which case you have to reload all the time. I also think that for you the pictures might be bigger because NoScript blocks resizing of the images.

    PLACEHOLDER


    THE FIRST PAGE OF THIS THREAD IS THE ONLY ONE THAT IS SLOW. THE SECOND PAGE WORKS LOVELY WITHOUT SCRIPT BLOCKING SO TURN IT OFF TO GET THE FULL EXPERIENCE.

    I like the idea of videos being short, rather than a 4 hour marathon, and losing the will to live :wink:

    Glad you've enjoyed yourself, that's why I made this place and filled it with some of the best tutorials one can find. I will be expanding it as time allows but unfortunately I'm very busy on both forums. Sometimes I add videos where I have left placeholders so check back later. :wink:

    Wow,

    I've been away for so long and I just came across this.

    Catalyst, fucking hell! Man do you even sleep!? This is amazing. As you and many others know I am very new to all of ths and I am always learning. Sometimes I read your or others' comments (i.e. Evorax) about audio questions and my mind gets blasted (note: not mind-blown... MIND-FUCKING-BLASTED!!!). These series are amazing and the fact that you took the time to set it all up in content format... amazing. Thank you so much. I learn so much from you and other audiosexuals from posts like this... Just amazing.

    Ok, I should get my learning cap on and start listening!

    Thanks again.

    Thanks so much, really happy you found a use for this section of the forums. This is an evolving series and I've made it easy to find what you want across different installments by referencing the AudioSex Academy Table Of Contents I will expand these threads as time allows so check back from time to time. As always it's my pleasure, we all learn from each other. That video you made was amazing, even sent the link to SAiNT. :mates:
