Volume is back to front, freguency is vertical, panning is horizontal, color shaded blobs are the labeled instruments. Great for beginners. Fun and cool to look at for anyone interested in mixing. Various genres shown. These were part of a course from back in the 80s/90s still relevant. (Each video is about 5 mins so less than 10mins to see both.)

I have always had a visual of a mix in my head; of my own songs and songs that I enjoy.
Lately I've been listening to a genre that I guess is called 'dreampop' and 'shoegaze'.
It's quite different to the ear - almost like you are listening to a band performing in a big canyon with different lead vocals and instruments coming 'forward' out of the murk.
For some reason, Russia is one of the hotbeds of this type of music. A couple of things that I like about it:
1. Usually a female singer is involved, with a light tone, airy, not nasal or demanding. 2. It seems that they use lots of baritone electric guitars, or Bass VI guitars, going from sparkly clean to heavy distortion and back. I think Duane Eddy and The Cure would be fans of this genre. 3. Everything gets reverb. 4. Ride cymbals are totally o.k. in this genre, where it seems like most pop and rock have forgotten the rides.
All this to say, I would be curious as to how Mr. Gibson would visualize these mixes.
We've taken the RealDrums and RealTracks source audio and remixed, remastered, and combined it to create these original loops. All of your favorite genres are covered, like jazz, funk, rock, pop, electronic, hip-hop, and more! To show them in action, we've created 50 new RealStyles that each include two of the loops. Plus, if you use the loops in Band-in-a-Box, we've included intelligent versions of the loops that automatically switch at A and B part markers. Each loop has a matching sister loop that works perfectly for another substyle!
