Transform Your Muddy Mixes Into Powerful, Radio-Ready Records With Your FREE EQ Cheatsheet

Your Ultimate Guide to EQ is 44% Off Until Friday

Yesterday I squashed some of your fears about EQ by telling you that you can use it however you want as long as you like the end result.

To recap:

  • Subtractive EQ isn’t better than boosting. It’s just one way of using an EQ to get a good mix.
  • You can boost and cut as much as you want. The “never boost more than 3 dB” advice is nonsense if it doesn’t help you shape the sound you want.

Here’s what a reader had to say about my myth-busting yesterday:

“Thanks for clearing that up! I’ve always felt guilty when I boosted around 12dB, let alone 18, regardless I did that mostly with synths where it’s easier to get away with as opposed to acoustic stuff.”

All that matters is whether your mix is sounding good. It doesn’t matter how you get there.

I want you to feel confident that even though your EQ curves might look “wrong” your mixes will sound right.

However, you might still need some strategies to understand how to fully use EQ to get there, and that’s where EQ Strategies – Your Ultimate Guide to EQ comes in.

It’s one of my most popular products and it’s helped thousands of home studio musicians and bedroom producers improve their EQ skills since the original version came out close to ten years ago.

It’s been continuously updated and revised since then and we’re currently on the fourth version of the course.

And to celebrate Icelandic Independence Day today, I’m putting it on sale for 44% off!

Why 44% off? Because Iceland became fully independent in 1944 and that’s the only excuse I need to come up with such a random number.

Even if you were only interested in a fraction of the things that EQ Strategies teaches, you’d still get your money’s worth – especially at 44% off!

Let me ask you though…If all EQ Strategies did for you was help you create more powerful and punchy mixes, would that be worth it to you?

And if all it did was give you a proven workflow to create separation between the instruments in your mixes and make your songs radio-ready, wouldn’t that be super helpful?

And what if all it did was help you create mixes that made people go “wow! Did you mix that? It sounds awesome!” wouldn’t you want that?

If that’s the case, it seems like you have two choices:

  1. Do nothing and stay where you are. Keep creating muddy mixes that sound weak, thin, and harsh…or
  2. Take action and start mixing awesome sounding songs where you can hear all the different instruments in your mixes.

I think the choice is clear.

So head over here:, use the code EQ44 to get your discount – and get started making clearer mixes.

Honestly, this package has so much valuable information I don’t know how long I’ll offer it at this price…so it’s probably best if you get it now so you can make your next mix the best one you’ve ever made.

Looking forward to helping you make better-sounding mixes!
