I will certainly be signing up for this!


If it’s good for @Paul then it’s good for me. I will be on a future course though so that I have completed next level mixing 1!



Already signed here :slight_smile:
See you on board folks :slight_smile:


Definitely doing this…AFTER…I finish next level mixing 1…which starts on the 19th!


I think a few of us are Derek… I know Sean is up for it.


What plug-ins are necessary for this course? If I take it, I want to make sure I have them before starting the class.

Also I’m torn if I should take next level mixing 1 or if I should jump straight into this course, as the advanced bus processing and mixing template sections look really intriguing. I’ve been an engineer/producer for several years, and have bachelors degree in it so, maybe next level 2 is a better investment than next level 1?


Hey @AlexNovick, if you go to the main homepage of the site where you get the chat facility, ask @Danny and give him the details of how you currently work etc. He really helped me to decide what I would get most value from first etc. What I can say is that I get those ‘LightBulb’ moments in almost every session. Danny is very good, not just in his technical ability but also as an educator. He covers a lot of not just ‘how’, but ‘why’ and suddenly things make a whole lot more sense. I don’t know, but i bet there will be things in each level that you think ‘doh! I’ve been missing that’!!

Hope that helps. I am on Next Level Mixing 1 from next week. There are a great bunch of guys on that course if you can get on it??


yup Ill be doing this one in the future. these courses are the absolute best.


@derekjuan @Elton I am indeed :wink: I’m going to look at doing it after (or during) the mastering course. Are you doing the ultimate course?


Yes. My thing is, I also want to do composition. So, I intend to do NLM 2 and composition but need to know chicken and egg, which one first! Will speak to @Danny to workout the best timetable.


NLM 2 is so good guys, we had our first session yesterday and damn this is going to be fun!


I’m looking forward to it @Paul - I’m well jell lol :slight_smile:


I’d like to do the EDM comp, I have no issue putting stuff together, but would like to learn the chords, tech etc


Yeah, I want to learn the science behind tension and release for example rather than trial and error. I know others may think this is the wrong way, but I want a formula!! Not for everything to sound the same, but so that I move from 80% perspiration 20% enjoying the end result (on a good day) to at least 50/50. I do have another issue which is I know I am a perfectionist and that isn’t a good condition to have. I love it when i am in the groove with a track, but that isn’t the majority of the time for me.

I also want to know (which is tied to the tension and release a bot anyway I think) about chord inversions and when to use them for what effect.

Remember @TheSheep there are only four chords required though…


I don’t have a science behind it, I just feel the music. If it feels good I go with it.


Use the force Sean, Feel. Don’t Think. And Remember, I will always be there…

Sure I have heard that advice before somewhere…


Haha a classic, love those films.
