Here's what my students are saying...
"I recently got with David to help me create a mix template and upgraded for him to record the private tutorials of his mix for a client of mine (first single on the album). I’ve always loved the way he mixes and he did not disappoint on this mix and template! The tutorial videos are the icing on top! The way he takes time to explain things will help make this album project go much smoother for me and I already feel way more confident moving into my own mixes."
Hi! I'm David Glenn and I'm a multi-platinum mix engineer. I founded The Mix Academy back in 2014 and have helped thousands of aspiring musicians, engineers, and artists deliver the best mixes of their lives. Today, with the opening of my new mixing mentorship program I'm going to help you take the sound you hear in your head and make it come out of the speakers!
I bet you've heard it before... It's the EAR and not the gear. #truth
My inbox used to be flooded with marketing emails sharing discounts and bundles on plugins, gear, as well as courses.
Don't deny it... We've all done it... Jumped on gear...
I don't blame you! I've been there. G.A.S. is real and I used to have it. Bad... (GAS = Gear Acquisition Syndrome)
Besides! Gear is fun. It's sexy. And the marketing efforts are full of incredible promises designed to make you think that when you pull that EQ up on bass that your low end is going to sit just like (fill in your favorite mixer's name here).
So what do we do? How do we become better at our craft? If gear isn't the answer, what is?
Experience and mentorship.
I stand behind the courses I release and my hope is that you've learned a ton from either my paid or even the free stuff on YouTube. My inbox is constantly filled with testimonials from students just like you who have seen major progress from diving into the courses but more importantly APPLYING the tips and techniques into their mixes.
But what if I told you there's more for you... Another level to take your mixes to that would only be possible with hundreds, if not thousands of hours of effort (experience) OR GUIDED EXPERIENCE through mentorship.
Let Me Coach You to Your Best Mix Yet
I want to put my ears and years of experience to work and take the guesswork out of mixing for you.
Are you ready to deliver the best mix of your career?
An Investment Into Your Future Success
When I first began my mixing career I had a mentor who helped guide not only the final product I was delivering to my clients but also the business side of things behind the scenes. When I launched my online business back in 2013 I had several mentors who helped me across the multiple facets of running an online business. Each time I hired a coach I saw results at a much faster pace than when I was being stubborn and relying solely on Google and YouTube videos.
Don't get me wrong! Being resourceful and hunting down answers to your many questions is incredibly valuable, but time is money and both are wasted when we have to filter to find good content in the sea of garbage online.
You Need Results.
There's nothing like 1 to 1 mentorship. What works best for someone else might not work the best for YOU. My new mix mentorship and template service are tailored to meet the needs of YOUR mixing skills.
The Gear Dilemma
Admit it... We love gear! Gear's great... It's fun... It's necessary (to a degree), but it's not what'll determine your success. Not even a little bit.
My guess is that you already know that the true key to finding success in this crazy music business is having the ear, the experience, and the skills to know what to do with the gear. And I'm talking about the gear you already have.
So What's the Answer?
It's learning to use the gear you already have.
No... I'm not even talking about the racks of outboard gear that you may or may not own. I'm talking about your DAW, the stock plugins, and your handful of trusty/go-to plugins from your favorite plugin companies. That's it.
Did you notice that nowhere did I mention a properly treated room?
How about the fact that I don't care if you mix on monitors or headphones?
Because I'm living proof that it doesn't matter what you mix on you can still deliver an incredible mix that translates!
I want to help you deliver killer mixes with the gear you already own.
You Have Options...
1. You could find a local professional and pay for lessons (probably pretty pricey and depending upon where you live not all that convenient).
2. You could go to an audio school (yikes... $$$)
3. You could keep doing what you're doing and hope for results to come.
4. You could hire me to mix a song of your choice and deliver you a new custom mix template, work 1-on-1 with me from the comfort of your studio to get honest and direct feedback about your mixes and receive a custom mixing game plan starting today!
Here's how it works after you claim your spot:
Step 1: Choose A Song
You can either submit a song OR choose from one from our pre-approved list.
Once you're inside your student dashboard your first task is to choose the song we'll use together for the mix. This can be:
- One of your songs or productions
- One of your client's songs
- Or choose one from over 50 we have available at TMA (multiple genres) at no extra charge
Step 2: Pre-Mix Strategy Call
What's the most important part of the mixing process?
COMMUNICATION with your clients.
This is why we're going to schedule either a video call or a phone call to discuss things like:
- Any/all references for the mix
- Your creative vision/direction for the song (radio/commercial, indie, organic, etc.)
- Which plug-ins and gear you already own (I'm going to stick to exactly what you have with no exceptions).
Step 3: It's Time to Mix!
David Glenn will mix the song of your choice and deliver Mix 1.
It's go time!
I'll mix the song you've chosen with close attention to your notes, references, and taste using only the plug-ins you already own.
Once I have something I would be proud to release myself, I'll deliver Mix 1 to your inbox for your review.
Step 4: The Mix Revision Process (Unlimited Revisions)
After delivering Mix 1 we'll enter the mix revision process.
While it can and does happen from time to time to have Mix 1 be "The One", chances are that we'll need to tweak things a bit in order to perfectly match your vision for the song.
To ensure that you're 100% satisfied with the mix I offer unlimited mix revisions. I won't stop mixing until you sign off on the final mix.
Step 5: One-on-One Livestream Call
Once the mix is signed off on we'll hop on a video call to review the full mix session (PRO and ELITE customers only)
Once the final mix is signed off on we'll hop on a video call via Sessionwire and I'll pull back the curtain on the entire session. We'll look at the tracks, the processing, and answer any questions you might have about how I achieved the final result.
You do NOT have to own Sessionwire for us to meet. This will be hosted on my end.
Step 6: File Delivery
The mix and all files will be packaged neatly and delivered to your inbox.
After our 1-on-1 call you'll receive the following:
- The final mix
- Any/all stems
- The final mix session (prepared in the DAW of your choice)
- Your brand new mix template (also prepared in the DAW of your choice)
- Recording of our entire coaching call
After David’s tutorials, I started getting paid clients. I took 2 years of audio school at a community college and then 4 years at OSU doing recording engineering. I learned more from 1 of David’s courses than all 6 years combined!
I’ve always loved the recording studio but am very new to mixing... I just finished the Mixing Drums course and now I'm working through the first walk-through mix. MIND BLOWN!! I’ve done a couple of the other mixing sites and The Mix Academy is by far the best out there! Thanks, David!
I’ve spent time at Full Sail, working alongside other engineers, and countless hours in multi-million dollar rooms, but my biggest wins were when I watched David mix. Something about his workflow just made it all click.
I received a mix critique from David yesterday. While complimentary in ways, he was very much the professional mix engineer finding what was less than complimentary to the rest of the mix. Thanks very much, David - I'm impressed with your ability to get right to the issues and even more impressed that your solutions are the right ones.
