What People Are Saying About The Course

"I've seen so many tutorials, and this is definitely one of the best I've seen based on how you managed to find a sweet spot between where its super informative yet straight to the point simultaneously"

Recording Artist, Engineer

"Very comprehensive. I was aware of the main concepts but I don't think I've ever seen this process done entirely in one sitting. This was very helpful."

Producer, Songwriter, Recording Artist

"These lessons were easy enough to follow along with solid explanations for each plugin or adjustment made in the mix. I really liked how you would A/B so the difference could be compared and acknowledged as well."

Producer, Recording Artist

"It was good that you broke things down sonically and visually and explained not just that things sound better when you do ‘XYZ’ but why it sounds better when you do ‘XYZ' as well."

Producer, Engineer
