“Mix Finisher Formula was my perfect class. Without a doubt the best investment I’ve made this year. It’s helped me understand so very much. I told myself my whole life that I don’t have an ear for this and that was my excuse for never learning how…It finally hit me that my DAW is a musical instrument and that really woke me to make that musical choice. I’m absolutely loving it."
-Gina LaMonte


"these lessons really made a huge difference to me... I'm a rookie, and an older one as well, unfortunately, so it took me some effort to get it right, but thanks to this I finally plunged into my DAW, which is Cubase. I set up a template where I routed my kick/snare/toms & overheads into a drum bus and my lead and backing vox into a vocal bus. I love the parallel opto and fet-compressing, which does magic for the vocals, in my particular case. Very happy with this course, thx!"
-Tom Vandegoor


"I found this course to be detailed, relevant, and very practical - and quite a bit of fun. Specifically, I found each of the tutorial videos engaging and detailed, yet it was not "preachy" as "this is the only way to" I learned the difference between EQ'ing for balance and cohesion and EQ'ing for color and dimension. The visual component of seeing the specific instrument's frequency range really helps nail problem areas more efficiently. Also, this course has changed (and simplified) the way I set up a session. The idea is great. You explain a little bit of why you use the plugin and what the overall goal is. Then you do it" live and then explain what you have done. I realized that all you need is basically only these 5 plug-ins."
-Ken Bauer, Mixing Engineer


"I felt like I had a basic knowledge of recording and mixing. The issue I had was putting it all together and figuring out a way to get a song finished (or knowing when a song is finished) and ready to be mastered and released. I learned a lot about EQ and compression but the biggest takeaway was learning a rock-solid workflow that keeps me mixing and creating instead of losing valuable time sifting through hours of articles and videos. Now when I start a new project, I have more confidence and feel better about my mixes. This course was great and the support was outstanding. I have purchased similar courses before and I have never received this kind of one on one attention from the others. The course worked well for me and it was presented in a way that never felt like information overload. If you are looking for a straight forward mixing course that teaches you advanced techniques that you can actually understand and use to improve your mixes, then this is for you."
-John Owings

Who am I and Why Should You Trust Me?

In case you don't know me well yet, let me introduce myself.

I'm Björgvin Benediktsson, author of Step By Step Mixing: How to Create Great Mixes Using Only 5 Plug-ins and the founder of Audio Issues.

I'm here to help you turn your amateur demos into professionally produced records you can be proud to release. 

As a professional audio engineer in the last 15 years, I’ve done live sound, broadcast radio recording, and studio mixing for artists in all types of genres. I’ve written over 1,000 articles and tutorials on audio production, both on Audio Issues and for other audio publications such as MusicTech magazine, Audiotuts+, The Pro Audio Files, and Recording Revolution to name a few.

My mixing techniques have helped thousands of musicians and producers gain the confidence and skills to make professional mixes they can be proud of. They've used their mixing skills to successfully release their own records and some have used their new-found mixing skills to get paying jobs from their home studios.

Now you can learn from my experience in the industry and my hands-on training at the SAE Institute to get easy to use, practical mixing tips to get rid of your muddy demos and start mixing pro, radio-ready records.

Looking forward to helping you improve your mixes!
