It’ll take your mixing and mastering skills to the NEXT LEVEL!!

Summary: How To Mix BINAURAL AUDIO in Logic Pro X

So, that’s how to mix binaural audio in Logic Pro X.

For the time being, Logic Pro X is the only DAW that has binaural pan integrated. I imagine that the other major DAWs will soon follow suit, but Apple is also planning to integrate an entire suite of spatial audio plugins by the end of 2021.

Apple Music is also starting to stream 3D/360-degree music, so let’s just say that I’m happy to be working with Logic Pro X.

I still can’t believe that I just recently found out about this feature!

It makes me want to go remix ALL of my music in binaural…

If you’re not using Logic Pro X though (or want to look at other options), I also wrote an article entitled “4 of the Best Spatial Audio Plugins”.

I’m personally considering the upgrade because the binaural pan plugin in Logic Pro X is actually missing some features.

Like I said, just check out the article.

AND if you have any questions about mixing binaural audio and music, feel free to drop me a line in the comments. Also, make sure to join Decibel Peak on Discord and to support our Patreon page if you’re enjoying the content.

Now, go and create some breathtaking binaural mixes…
