How to use reference tracks when mixing music.

Reference tracks are a great way to make sure your music is “radio ready” and that you can get you mix sounding the best it can.

Using a reference track simply involves importing a track that has a similar sound to what you are going for, then soloing your song and this song separately to see how your track compares, so you can make changes.
