About the course

With the Audio Mixing and Mastering course, you get in-depth training about how to take your mixes from average to spectacular!

You’ll learn everything from basic audio mixing, all the way through to creating dynamic mixes and mastering workflows. During the mixing process, you’ll discover how to create a cohesive sound by taking separate sound elements that make up a song. After that, the mastering process will teach you the skills to take the finished mix and improve the overall tonal and dynamic characteristics.

The best part? This course takes you from A to Z in a total of just 8 weeks. 

Don’t be just “another” music producer, become “THE” music producer that people are talking about!
