What people are saying about our tutorials:

Vocals being the king of the song, it was always tricky for me to get them right - especially when you have multiple stacks of background vocals. This tutorial really helped me out to see them break down their vocal chains step by step and explain the thought process behind mixing vocals in detail. By following the techniques I've learned from this course my vocals are sounding a lot more polished and professional.

- Amos Y., Engineer

For a long time I really struggled to get everything to sit well in a dense mix, but watching these guys go through each track step by step really showed me the problem areas in my mixes and I was able to go back and fix them.

I´m now much more confident in my skills as a mixer.

After being a member of Pro Mix Academy for only a few months, my mixes are sounding much better and more professional. I´m able to get more work and mix songs for various artists by using the songs as pieces in my portfolio.

- Clayton A., Producer/Musician/Artist

After watching 'Anatomy of a Mix' with Bob Horn, the tips and tricks that I learned allowed me to save a home recorded mix I was ready to give up on.

The easy going delivery also makes it easy to digest the information they're giving you and sit through hours of tutorial at a time.

- Sam K., Producer/Engineer
