Course reviews

I now have a clear understanding on what to listen in a mix... which is supposed to be the basics, but that is also the most overlooked stuff. […] For people tempted to get involved, [this course] is really about listening, trying to master inner sonic sensations... And that was super refreshing. 
Maxime Ferrieu
Thanks to Daniel's method, […] my approach to mixing has become so much more efficient and purposeful! Every young (or less young) mixing engineer and musician should take this course, it will give them a very solid basis on which to keep building.
Bernhard Duc
Easily one of the best mixing/engineer lessons I've watched so far. What makes this course stand out is the clearly structured concept to analyze music, It not only changed the way I listen to mixes, but also how I approach mixing tutorials. It tremendously helped me improve the quality of my current mixes.

Frequently asked questions

You’ve got questions. We’ve got answers.

Does your teaching work for all kind of genres?

Yes! The basic paradigms of mixing can be applied to any kind of music genre. However, with my expertise in mixing jazz, pop, orchestral and film music, you will mostly hear examples from these genres. 

What is the time commitment?

The course duration is approx. 10 hours. However, if you seriously want to study everything, practice, and invest some time in reflection, I recommend planning more time :-)

Are their any requirements?

We recommend a basic knowledge of music mixing with a general understanding of equalizers, compressors and reverbs. Ideally, you've already mixed a few songs, but you feel stuck and want to get your sound to the next level. You should have a decent pair of monitors or headphones. 

How do I access the course, and can I download it, or is it online only?

You access the course over this site. Just bookmark it. It's not possible to download the course, so you must have an internet connection. This is due to restrictions of the video provider. 

How long do I get access to the course materials?

You'll purchase a lifetime access to this course. 

Where was the course recorded?

The course is based on a masterclass held during the Covid pandemic in 2021 at Idee und Klang Studio, Basel, Switzerland. As only a few students were allowed in the same room, we professionally filmed the lectures in 4K and created the Bible. 

Can I book a 1:1 session with Daniel?

1:1 Sessions may be available, but depend on Daniel's schedule. It's required that you have successfully worked through the Mixing Bible, since further teaching is based upon it. Get in touch via [email protected] for more information. The current rate is €250 for an 1-hour session. 

What is different in your Mixing Bible compared to the free YouTube classes?

The Mixing Bible dives way deeper into the art of mixing than the free teaching on my YouTube channel. It builds upon a clear educational concept and explains the philosophy behind a convincing mix in much more detail. You'll learn how to analyze a mix, the three criteria to look out for with the help of a diverse mix of examples. The course not only lays out the foundation for your further mixing career, but also upcoming courses.

In the free YouTube Turtorials, there is far less preparation and most of the topics are just covered at the surface.

In short: if you just want learn some basic tricks, YouTube will be sufficient for you. If you really want to get your skills to the next level, the paid class is what you need. 

How does your teaching differentiate from other teachers?

I wish I had time to check, what other teachers are doing :-) I am sure there is great stuff out there. What differentiates me, might be, that I had the luck to mix absolutely magical productions by great artists, but I also started teaching at a young age. So I gained a lot or experience to explain, what basically is unexplainable (I mean, what is a great mix really?). Most student say, my explanations are very understandable and in a way that they have never heard of before. And that it helped them, to understand things that they have not understood before. At the end, there is more, than just "Tips and Tricks" to learn. 

I already have a puremix subscription, shall I cancel it, if I got the Bible?

No! They have nothing in common. Pure Mix is great if you want to have access to a lot of videos and information, and manly it can be an inspiration to see so many top Engineers at one place. To watch how they work, and you get some tips and tricks. My course is a dedicated mixing learning experience with a concept. Maybe a comment given to one of my free videos is explaining the difference. If the YouTube comment is already so strong, how good must then the Bible be? :-)
"... This stuff is hard to find, even in Puremix there’s little about reverbs, leave alone with the gift you have for explaining. Michael Carnes have fantastic tutorials about this, but he isn’t as clear as you. Thanks for teaching the truth!" (Andrei Martinez Agras)
