We Transform Musicians Into Professional Producers With the Step By Step Mixing Process
“I love your emails, really love them! I read them every week/day/when I get them. They always inspire me and I was struggling with a mix, wanted to quit music, you know how it is. And you know why? Because the way you teach is the same way you write those emails. You write and teach in a way that completely makes the concept or the task easy to understand. I just wanted to tell you that. Even though I have known these techniques for a while and are very familiar with them and I was looking for something more advanced, I found myself saying "wow, that's a great way to look at that" a lot...I think you are a great teacher and a great musician. Thank you for reminding me that I have at least grown a bit, but even more so, thank you for inspiring me and helping me to push forward, grow, organize, plan and to stay positive so many times through the writings in your emails. I really appreciate it!”
"THANK YOU for your E-books. The information on mixing drums ALONE was well worth the money. I would listen to other peoples "mixes" which were typically a lot of guesswork, reapply using your principles, and come out with a far better product each time. The most recent song that I did sounds SOOO good, you can hear all the instruments clearly, there's no mud, the drums are tight and punchy, the kick is dead on, and the Toms are deep and thunderous."
"Thank you for spending the time to collate all this useful information on mixing in such an easy-to-follow way. Your written (I say written because I’m yet to dive into your videos!) teaching style is lucid, direct, and with an added sense of lightness and humour which I believe are incredibly valuable for us budding musicians and producers. In a digital age filled with information overload, “gear lust”, people selling snake oil, and those folks taking it all so seriously...your voice cuts through the noise (Lol) in the best way possible! "
Thanks a lot, Bjorgvin Benediktsson.... Kindly allow me to over-estimate your importance in the growth of my musical career from an amateur into a pro... Your information has really molded my production skills into what my clients today call good music... Thanks a lot and keep up the good work.
