MIX Magazine says this about our course...

"This complete course for new engineers provides a well-rounded music industry curriculum that doesn't just stop at the final mix. It does much to duplicate and augment the hands-on experience students need. The series of 25 big lessons in a 500+ page manual are rich in detail but presented in a gradual style, so one doesn't get overwhelmed by the technology."
