Let’s Get Better Online


These are interesting times we’re in and with that I’ve been working on creating some new opportunities for engineers to get help improving their skills. So here are some options you might be interested in.

Free Webinars

First up, I’m setting up a couple of free online webinars. The first webinar will delve into how to grow as an engineer. Whether you’re trying to take your own engineering to the next level or whether you’re leading a team and trying to figure out how to help your crew improve, this one is for you.

On Thursday, April 30th at 2pm EST I’m going to unpack my roadmap for audio development and simplify it into a repeatable process you can use for you and your team’s development. I’ll have details on how to join the webinar on my website and on social media early next week, but go put it on your calendar now.

The second webinar I’m working on will be a live Mix Deconstruction Q&A. My goal is to open up a mix session and answer questions about approach, why decisions were made, how things like artist feedback weighed into the process, technical matters, etc. You’ll be able to see how and why I did certain things such as plug-in choices, routing, grouping, using VCA’s, etc. More importantly you’ll be able to ask questions based on what you’re learning in real-time. I know a lot of guys are trying to figure out how to navigate mixing online right now so I’m hoping this may offer some help.

The Mix Deconstruction Q&A will be exclusive for subscribers to my website, so please head over to my website and Subscribe to the updates if you haven’t already done so.

Remote Online Training

Next up, I’m gearing up to offer remote, one-on-one, real-time training via livestream. This won’t be quite the same as what we can accomplish in person in your space, but with the growing importance of streaming I think this will still be quite useful. Plus, in a lot of ways, mixing is mixing whether we’re live or in a studio environment so fundamental and advanced techniques ranging from EQ to basic compression to multi-band compression, dynamic EQ, delays, reverbs, etc. are potentially applicable in any mix setting from live sound to the studio. And, of course, just like the in-person training I usually do on-site, we’ll be able to use recordings of your musicians and dig in on ways that might help you in your particular context.

I’ll be doing this at a discounted rate for the first sessions as I work out the technical side of it, so if you’d like to get in on that please send me a message through my website.

Mix Evaluations & Coaching

This isn’t a new offering, but I have re-tooled my approach to these in order to make them more beneficial and budget friendly. So if you’re looking for feedback and suggestions on a mix, drop me a line to find out more about this opportunity.

If you have questions or would like to find out more about these opportunities, please contact me through my website. And to stay up-to-date on special offers, make sure to subscribe to the updates as well.
