Today I am VERY, very excited to introduce you to a new project that my good buddy Graham Cochrane and I are launching.

What is it?

It’s called:

Check it out here:Ā www.DuelingMixes.com

Here’s the quick summary: Graham and I will essentially be duking it out every month, both trying to beat the other at mixing the same song. We’ll also be sharing our mixes plus videos of how each of us went about mixing the song.

On top of that, members will get the multi-track files, too! (So you can mix the song in your studio along with us.)

It’s gonna be awesome, and the doors are open TODAY.

I could go on and on about all the cool things that will be going on, but you’d better see it for yourself:

    Hey Joe, are the videos for this going to be HD quality, meaning 1080 or 720?

  • Good to see you guys being creative – i.e. figuring out other ways to make money out ov mixing & music, apart from actually making money *from* mixing or music… šŸ˜‰

    • Oh Xan…always the critic. šŸ™‚

      • Not exactly… I think it’s a smart & good thing to do – diversify. Sort ov reminded me ov this dude who fished in the North Sea, but profits from fishing was declining so he diversified by going out on his boat to service offshore wind generators. It wasn’t has absolute first love – fishing – but it still got him out on the sea using his assets in a profitable way to put a crust on his table.

    Quick question for you, Joe: are these songs (more specifically, each track in the session) going to be edited ahead of time or will we (the students) be editing the tracks first. Am I going to have to push around drum hits and line up acoustic guitar strums or will that stuff be done ahead of time?

    I ask because editing drums to a grid (and then pocketing the bass…then getting the acoustic guitar’s slowly picked strums lined up) takes time (and it’s not exactly fun) but it’s also an important part of the process. I could see reasons for both sides of the argument. It’s super important but it’s also a finesse thing, too. If Dueling Mixes is about making your mixes better, it might be good to have the tracks edited ahead of time. A great mix will almost always sound bad if it’s poorly edited but a well-edited track can sound anywhere from bad to great.

    It might be worthwhile to have the tracks edited ahead of time to make sure the quality of our mixes aren’t diluted by our potentially bad editing.

    Thanks again for all the great information, Joe!

    • Hey TheSchmalz,

      Our goal is to focus on mixing, not editing. So generally the tracks will be in “mix-ready” condition.
      That’s the plan.

    Will there be a duelingmixes discount for hsc vip members like with the rest of your products?

    • Not on this one. The VIP discount applies to my products. This one is a joint product between me and Graham…but we priced it at a “VIP discount” sort of price, so it’s still an awesome value.

  • Hi Joe
    sounds like a great Idea.
    How do you pay for this each month is it 12 direct debits cos I’m not sure I’d want to go with every month maybe every other month.. is this possible?

    • It’s a monthly subscription, billed every 30 days. That’s the only option.

      • Ok Thanks… So if I wanted to try out month one and then month 3 for example am I going to have to cancel and re join for the months I want.

  • Dustin

    Can’t wait to try this Joe!!
