“I’ve been in this program for less than a month, and so far my income has doubled. My mixes have gone from hobby level to sounding totally pro. I couldn’t get this much experience and information from any of the $40,000 a year colleges. I would recommend this to anyone. Your money and time will be well spent.”

You are actually able to see professionals mixing a song with the same tools as anyone that runs a professional or bedroom studio. These guys are highly informative and the live mix event was powerful and entertaining.Robin Leijon, Lionheart Recordings
I’m so glad I got on board! It’s fun! I’ve picked up so much cool stuff from the live mix event and can’t wait to try some of what I learned in my own mixes. Being given high quality raw files to work with is an excellent bonus!Simon Pettiford

Having looked forward to this since it was announced, I didn’t gear myself up to be disappointed and I can safely say that I wasn’t. The broadcast quality and information were top notch. It’s one thing to be able to YouTube certain people’s mix tricks, but it’s another to be virtually sitting over the shoulder of someone who has proven their worth in a mixing situation countless times. I learned more in those few hours than I have in years of self learning. There’s no better way to learn than seeing it happen in a real situation and that’s exactly what Nail The Mix provides.Dan Martin-Hall, Pyar Recordings

Frequently Asked Questions


Don’t worry, you will have access to a VOD (Video On Demand) replay of the event for as long as you’re subscribed.
No. The files we provide are stemmed in wav format so you can just import them into your DAW, and get to mixing! We also include meter, tempo, and song information.
No, you don’t need to have the same plugins we have. Plugins are tools for audio just like a hammer is a tool for construction. Plugins come in a variety of colors & tones, and they each provide a way to sculpt your mix. We educate you on all kinds of plugins, when how and why to use them, and we often give you additional solutions using alternative plugins for solving mixing problems with similar results. As long as you understand the reasons behind the decision making, you’ll know what to do. Oh and pro-tip, every DAW comes with stock plugins that are more than good enough for Nail the Mix.
No. But, we encourage it because it’s fun, and you’ll learn more about your strengths and weaknesses as a mixer. You won’t win cool prizes if you don’t compete!
No, you can only access the files and videos for the months you’ve paid for. If you want a previous month’s material, you can purchase each one separately.
Don’t worry, you’ll have access to the current month you paid for plus our first month’s (November 2015) files.
