PRO RECORDING AND MIXING SERIES 1
5+ hours of the ultimate music production education
In our Pro Recording & Mixing Series we take you into a world-class, multi-room recording studio to give you the best possible music production education.
Then we’ll show you how to apply all this info into your home and/or project studio. We emptied out a huge mic locker, recorded world-class players, and we show you in detail how to apply these techniques in your studio. (Applies to all systems analogue and digital/DAW, and all styles of music).

Mixing Like a Pro
One of the key features of this series is a 3.5 hour, in-depth look at mixing techniques most commonly used by pros. Our Lead Trainer, Manny LaCarreubba, is a top-level mixer and will take you through dozens of techniques that will definitely improve your mixes. We also have the audio tracks from the session available to you so you can download them and follow along with your system.
Our Lead Trainer was also the Technical Director & Lead Engineer at a famous multi-room studio where he helped a long list of the best Producers and Engineers with any technical issues they would have. It was the best possible learning experience and he will show you the key secrets he learned.
Expert Vocal Recording Overview
We’ll show you how to record vocals like a pro, and help you with mic choices. There are high quality, inexpensive mics out there! (hint: it’s less about the mic pre and more about the room.)
We cover exactly how this works in a “big” studio and how to get the same results at home. Great vocal tones will be easy after you watch our recording and mixing clips on this topic.
The Ultimate Drum Tone Experience
Whatever kind of music you are producing, if you have drums the tones must be awesome. This is the best drum recording and mixing education you will find. We started by putting roughly 40 mics on the drum kit of one of the top drummers in the field, and then we also show you how to get great results with as few as 3 mics.
Even if you use samples and produce Electronic Music knowing how acoustic drum recording and mixing works is critical and will help you get pro results.
This series gives you an experience most expert engineers have never had! Then we go into detail about how to mix and blend drums for all different styles of music.

Your expert level education will include putting over a dozen mics on acoustic guitars so you can see and hear which you like best. This is the best possible education you can get on this topic, and will give you a huge jump start in finding the best acoustic guitar tone for your music. Watch the short clip and you’ll see we went all out on showing you all the popular ways of recording a great sounding acoustic guitar.
Recording Electric Guitars – Master Level
We will also take you through many of the most popular ways to mic guitar cabinets. You can see and hear exactly how pros work and speed through decades of trial and error.
