What people say about our tutorials

What is a Mixthru?

Frequently Asked Questions

How is Mixthru different than other tutorials?

Mixthru focuses specifically on application, whereas other tutorials present a balance between theory and application. A Mixthru is a window into the real world of a mix engineer — a virtual chance to attend a session and have me explain everything I'm thinking.

Are you teaching or just mixing the song?

I'm teaching through mixing. Each song will present universal challenges that tend to be true in many records of a particular genre, but each song will also present unique challenges, and observing how I tackle both will be fulfilling to the learning process.

Will I learn techniques to apply to my own mix?

Absolutely. But more importantly, I am teaching a thought process. Mixing is about understanding the song, creating goals, and tackling obstacles. Often times we run into situations that can be addressed with multiple techniques. I'm not only teaching those techniques, but I'm also teaching a process for choosing which specific techniques will be best.

What DAW are you using to mix?

I mix in Pro Tools, but the techniques and processes you will learn are completely independent of any one particular DAW, and will apply to Logic, Ableton, Cubase, Reaper, Fruity Loops, Studio One and other similar platforms.

Do I need to own specific plugins?

Nope! Matthew uses the plugins he prefers to teach with, but the concepts will apply to any similar signal processing. Matthew may demonstrate with the FabFilter Pro-Q EQ or Sonnox Oxford Dynamics compressor, but the same ideas will apply to any EQ or compressor, including stock plugins inside your DAW. Using high quality software can certainly improve your results, but the most important factor is learning to use what you already have as effectively as possible — and that's what we're all about.

Is my satisfaction guaranteed?

Yes, always! We're confident these videos will help you, but we want you to be absolutely satisfied. If within 30 days you’re unhappy for any reason, email us and we’ll give you a full refund — no questions asked.
