If you’re a mixer, chances are you love yourself a powerful drum sound.
Well guess what? – So does Mark! 😉

For a long time I struggled to get everything to and sit well together in a dense mix, however after watching this tutorial I identified he problem areas in my mixes and I was able to go back and fix them. My confidence has grown leaps and bounds as a mixer.
After only a few months of being a Pro Mix student, my mixes are sounding much better and far more professional. The songs have grown my portfolio and I’m finding more and more work as a mixer.
