Poolside Chats Podcast (Episode 19)

Poolside Chats Podcast: Episode 19 “We Speak Words Well”

Welcome friends, we have another exhilarating episode of The Poolside Chats Podcast in store for you today! In Episode 19 we talk about the Age of Information or in some cases the Age of Misinformation. Many channels and sites online are often filled with subjective and biased information rather than objective sources of truth. We aspire to be students for life, and we highly support you in your quest to also be humans who are hungry to learn and grow.

It was Jamie Jasta who said, “Satisfaction is the death of desire.” Endeavour to learn and grow friends, if you do you will live your human experience to the highest level while manifesting supreme levels of creativity along the way! For more info on The Poolside Chats Podcast, or to check our episodes where Kriss/Dom have been guests check out the official page for the Podcast right here at The Continuum Music Studio.


Episode 19 is packed with questions on some of the more “comprehensive” topics in the realm of mixing. Some of the topics we cover in this episode are:

  • The truth about YouTube Tutorials

  • Our approach to making tutorials

  • Thinking you know everything illustrates that you know nothing

  • How to get excited about making music in creative downswings

  • Can being high in the studio enhance creativity?

  • Stop judging yourself and allowing others to judge you

  • Leaning to live in the moment

  • How to gauge a “good” mix vs a “bad” mix (if we must use these terms)

  • How to compare mixes for maximum subjectivity

  • How to be open in terms of mixing and defining your own sound

  • Common mixing mistakes

  • Layering and more layering

  • Intelligent plugins – the death of ear training

  • The beginner mixing mindset

  • and Much More!
