I can honestly say that buying the two lessons were
PRICELESS. I’ve been dabbling in my home studio for around 6 years now, and I’ve pushed knobs and turned dials thinking I had a grasp on what EQ and compression were. However, now that I have studied the tools and insight you provided, I can honestly say that for the first time I actually UNDERSTAND what they are.

Joe, thank you for putting your heart in all the things you are doing…The most important thing is that you are a good teacher. A good teacher one who can think as the pupils who don´t know anything, like those who are completely lost when they see all the new things on the screen. You have that feeling. Thanks! – Jens
I’m amazed by the value you put into these courses for the price! – Ron Dawson

Editing is one of those skills that can be difficult to learn. It’s essentially the process of taking your recorded tracks and polishing them, getting them ready for mixing. In these videos (over 3 hours), I explain to you the nuts and bolts of editing audio, everything from removing unwanted pops and clicks from a vocal track to pocketing bass, guitar, and drums. It took me years to learn how to do this efficiently. Now I’ve condensed all that information down into a single tutorial series. Click here to learn more.
