Are Your Mixes Dull And Boring?
Do Your Mixes Lack That "Pro" Sound?
Then my 101 Mixing Tricks coaching program is just the thing
to help you take your mixes to the next level.

It’s important to know the fundamentals of mixing, but sometimes you just need to pull out a sonic trick or two to make that mix just jump out of the speakers. That’s why I created the 101 Mixing Tricks video coaching program.

In it you’ll find 101 big studio mixing tricks that the A-list pros use that not many people know about, but can be easily applied to any small or home studio mixing situation to make your mixes hold up against what's coming from the major labels.

I’ve been collecting these tricks for years from great mixers like Elliot Scheiner, Ed Cherney, Ken Scott, Andrew Scheps, Dave Pensado and many more, and now you can watch the step by step process as I set each one up so you can easily do it yourself afterwards.

If you're familiar with my Mixing Engineer's Handbook or Audio Mixing Bootcamp books, or my courses on Lynda.com, you know that I'm really good at breaking down what can sometimes be a complex subject into something that's very easy to understand, and that's exactly what you'll find here.

And just to put your mind at ease, here are a couple of things to remember:

In the vast majority of tricks, you won’t need any special or expensive plugins. I'll show you how to make them work with just the native processors built into your DAW.
These tricks are platform agnostic, so they'll work on any DAW app, and even on an analog or digital console!
