So you have a home studio, but can’t find bands willing to pay you?
Constantly going out of your way to find paid work?
Struggling to justify all the money you just spent on hardware and software? (or at least the software you didn’t pirate, you asshole)
Well let’s be honest with each other for a second…
You may suck at mixing. If you don’t suck at mixing, then you’re not hustling properly (and there’s nothing I can do to help with that).
So you’ve admitted to yourself that you could at least improve your mixing skills. This is a crucial step in separating yourself from all the other home studios you’re competing against for paid work.
There are TONS of bands in the “heavy music” genre. How many can you name?
Now take that number and multiply it by 500. Why?
Because most of the bands that will end up paying you will be bands you've never heard of.
For example, 90% of the bands that pay me to mix their music, I’ve never even heard of before.
What does this mean to you?
This means there is a gigantic number of heavy bands in the world that are willing to pay good money for their songs to be mixed and mastered by a professional.
Now how many professional mixing engineers in this genre can you personally name?
5 to 10 maybe? Not that many.
Making the transition from hobbyist to full-time mixing engineer is something that many people want, but few are able to achieve.
I’m talking about the guys that do only this for a living, and need no other source of supplemental income. There is a surprising lack of “known” guys in this genre.
This is awesome for pros like me, because I never have to seek out work.
I’ve literally never paid one cent to advertise myself or my studio.
I’m at the point in my career where I don’t have to advertise, I don’t have to seek out work, and I don’t struggle for money. Bands, labels, and managers reach out to me for work.
Now I make 70%+ of my income exclusively from paid mixing/mastering projects, but this wasn't something that happened over night.
I’ve spent the last 6 years of my life devoted to recording and mixing/mastering bands as my sole source of income, and I’ve put thousands of hours (and dollars) into self-education.
This is what separates me from the guys struggling to find work.
Of course, I know how to price projects properly, and communicate with bands/labels/managers, but none of that would matter if I was a terrible mixing engineer.…
“Well that’s all fine and fucking dandy, Brian, but how does this help me in any way, shape, or form? You fat idiot.”
I’m here to basically pass on my knowledge to you in the best way I can.
I’ve created an entire online mixing course that shows you how I mix a song from start to finish.
Every. Single. Thing.
From raw, shitty, unmixed tracks.
To final, mastered, not-shitty mix.
By the end of this course, you'll see exactly what I did to turn the "shit mix" into the "gold mix".
My goal for this course is to take my 6+ years of knowledge and experience, remove all the mistakes and shitty habits, and condense everything down into 9 hours of delicious content.
This is my attempt to help you fast-forward through your next 5 years of trial and error.
From Shit To Gold
The most detailed mixing course for heavy music available today. Fast-forward through your next 5 years of trial and error with step-by-step videos covering every single aspect of your mix.
"If you really want to get up to speed fast, join From Shit To Gold. It will be the best money you've ever spent...trust me...I did it, and leaped way forward!"
"I think Creative live looks like a watered down live version of what your videos are. They look precise and detailed and in depth and "in the studio" as opposed to "mimicking what I do in my studio."
Honestly I think your videos are great and it's crazy how detailed they are. Shows the true dedication one must have to "making it work". If dudes can't follow along (with the course) and/or do all those steps, other dudes will be doing it and one-upping them."
"This course covers both the specifics of Brian's sound and overall metal mixing. It's great for both beginners and pros, and teaches you to organize your workflow in an efficient way. You also get a good look at the many different shirts Brian wears."
Make the best out of what you're given, even if the tracks are terrible.
The final mile...you WILL fuck this up
...because who doesn't love free shit?
I spent 6 months of my life creating, crafting, and carefully editing this course to make it as user-friendly as possible. I've edited out every single wasted second, so there is no filler bullshit. Because of this, I'm more than 16% sure you'll love the course. If you don't love it, simply email me at any point within 30 days of purchase, and I'll actually refund all of your motherfucking money. The only thing I'll ask is "what can I do to make this course better?"

"So I decided to take From Shit To Gold, and it came with these numetal stems. I already got the kick and snare to not sound like total garbage, but I've got a long way to go.
Stoked to be learning from a pro. If you're thinking about taking the course, do it!"
"Since about June I've been booked every weekend with some sort of recording project. I've got my first national release coming out this fall on a label called Innerstrength for a band called Advocate. Thanks again for the course dude, it's more than paid off."
Previews From This Mixing Course
Here are 4 preview videos selected from the 65+ included in From Shit To Gold.
For life! Whether you pay in full, or choose a payment plan, you get all the videos for life.
This is not a live course. As soon as you pay, you get access to all of the course content. You can binge-watch all 65 videos if you want, or you can space it out over the next 6 months if that's what you need to do to fit it into your schedule.
Nope! You can use any of the major DAWs that you wish. I use Pro Tools, but just about every single thing I do has a comparable function in Logic, Cubase, Nuendo, Reaper, etc.
As a matter of fact, the majority of my students so far are on DAWs that aren't Pro Tools.
Unfortunately it takes a lot of time for me to market and sell this course. I'm constantly putting out fires here and there, dealing with payment system issues, and answering questions from potential customers.
Because of this, I'm unable to give the proper level of support for to customers who have already joined.
Since I'm a one man show (literally, I've done everything by myself here), I have to section off "sales" periods to these weeklong windows every few months.
This allows me to focus on customer support for the students while they're going through the course content.
Once registration closes, I can shift my focus to the overload of emails and facebook message I've gotten this week.
It depends on which day you sign up! If you joined on the 5th of the month (for example), then your account will be charged again on the 5th for the next 3 months.
I made a video going over the minimum requirements needed to take this course. I cover hardware, software, and mental requirements for this course
