EQ Strategies - Your Ultimate Guide to EQ
If you want to create separation between your instruments and balance in your mixes, EQ Strategies - Your Ultimate Guide to EQ will help you accomplish that.
This eBook and video course is a comprehensive guide that teaches you to understand and recognize frequencies so you can fix common problems like muddiness in your lows, harshness in your vocals and boxiness in your drums.
Put simply, once you master EQ, you'll be able to create space and hear all the instruments in your mix.
"An immediate and hugely practical understanding of the frequency spectrum and fantastic examples of positive and negative aspects of the key audio frequency bands as related to achieving better mixes. A superbly comprehensive and humorously written book by someone with lots of of a practical experience, that beats many video tutorials on this subject. Plus you can have a comprehensively indexed pdf to hand for quick referencing while mixing without needing to fire up a video tutorial and scrub through the timeline hoping to find what you're looking for! I was a beta reader for the eBook and I liked the content so much I bought the full course!"

Mixing With 5 Plug-ins is an in-depth course with over 6 hours of content that teaches you to master the plug-ins you need for a great sounding mix. Learn exactly how to use the five most important plug-ins you already have in your DAW to transform your music from demos into professional sounding productions.
You'll learn to create separation between your instruments; You'll know exactly how and when to use each type of compressor; You'll become a master of adding space with reverb and delay; and you'll master the different styles of saturation to make your mixes stand out.
"Overall, I really enjoyed the course. I think for me the most valuable thing was seeing your screen and watching your thought process visually. I have read mixing textbooks in the past and the information is simply too dense to be all that useful. I've been mixing for a while as a hobby and in that time have picked up many bad habits, and this course definitely helped me re-learn the habits that make for better mixes. I really enjoyed the course. I personally didn't really want to use the song that you were mixing and instead opted for applying the techniques I learned from the videos to my own mix. I would certainly recommend this course to anyone who is starting out on their mixing journey as well as folks like me who have been mixing for a while but haven't learned good fundamentals...overall I am very satisfied with my purchase.

The Drum Mix Toolkit
The Drum Mix Toolkit is your one-stop-shop to getting professional sounding drums from your home recordings. Learn how to use EQ, compression, transient designers, sample replacement, reverb, saturation and parallel processing to transform your weak home studio drums into professionally produced drum sounds.
Unlock the expert advice from My 11 years of drum mixing inside the Drum Mix Toolkit. I share all the tricks and techniques I've amassed throughout the years of transforming thin and weak home recorded drums into punchy and powerful drum mixes.
"Drum Mix Toolkit is a fantastic resource. Not only is it a well written book full of tips, tricks, and workflow methods that you can implement today, but to me, the best part is that it also contains video examples by Bjorgvin himself so you can actually hear the techniques in action! It's one thing to read about audio, but it's another to see exactly how to use these techniques in a real session, and more importantly, to hear the differences made through the process. To top it off, Bjorgvin has provided the practice tracks he used in the videos for free as well! Absolutely fantastic and highly recommended! What I've learned in this package will be used on my bands/brothers drum tracks for years to come!"

"I like how in this course Björgvin goes through the whole process of recording vocals without skipping a beat, so to speak. He does not just talk about mic technique and mixing, although he has plenty of excellent tips on these subjects. He also talks about the importance of pre-production and making sure that the vocalist is comfortable in the studio, and how things that some engineers might not think about, like the lights, or the quality of the headphone mix can affect the mood and therefore the vocal performance. Overall this is an excellent course in one of the most important aspect of recording, getting the vocals right."
