Since my new mixing class (Understanding Mixing) starts tomorrow, I want to answer a few questions about it.

If you want to join later, you certainly can. But if you join today (before midnight Central Time), you’ll get in at a $50 discount.

Okay, here are the questions:

What time are the classes every Tuesday/Thursday?

There’s no set time. You download and watch the videos on your own time, at your own pace. Each Tuesday and Thursday, you’ll receive an email from me reminding you to log into the members area to download the new video content for that day.

What’s the difference between Understanding Mixing, Dueling Mixes, and the Production Club?

The Production Club is a 19-week course that walks you through the entire recording process from song demo to finished master. While it takes you through the mixing process, for the sake of time I couldn’t go super in-depth into all the aspects of mixing.

Understanding Mixing is an in-depth look at both the concepts and strategies of mixing a song from start to finish. I will teach you everything I know about mixing and I’ll walk you through mixing a song, explaining everything as I go. This is meant to be a foundational piece of training, one that complements my Understanding EQ and Understanding Compression videos.

Dueling Mixes is what I consider the “final stop” for my customers. Once you have a good foundational understanding of how to mix, Dueling Mixes provides a place for you to get ongoing practice and training on continually improving your skills.

What software will you be using?

I will be mixing in Presonus’s Studio One software. But don’t worry, if you’re not a Studio One user you will still get just as much value out of the class. I focus on teaching the concepts, not the software. You can easily apply what you learn to your DAW, whether it’s GarageBand or Pro Tools.

Can I get a refund if I don’t like the class?

Of course. You have a full 60 days to try it out. If it’s not for you, that won’t hurt my feelings one bit. Just shoot me an email, and we’ll issue a full refund. Easy peasy.

Will I be able to download the tracks so I can mix along with you?

Absolutely. Ideally you’ll mix the song AS I mix it. For example, after you watch the video on setting up the mix, you’ll set up your mix. Then after you watch the video on getting a good static mix, you’ll do your static mix. That way you’re both learning AND applying what you learn.

Will I really get better mixes?

Yes, but only if you do the work. If you’re just interested in watching videos and not applying what you learn, I don’t want you to sign up. This is for people who are hungry to get better and eager to put in the work to make it happen. I can help you, but you have to do the work.

Okay, that’s it. If you have any final questions, reply to this email.

Remember, the $50 discount goes away tonight. If you try to join tomorrow, you’ll have to pay full price.
