How to Escape the DAW "Rabbit Hole" and Start Crafting Remarkable Mixes
Introducing the "Netflix of Mixing" — Now anyone can become a more competent, more confident mixer and achieve a pro sound in record time!
Audio engineers in the studio
The 3 Secrets You Need to Know
Let’s be honest...

You didn’t put all that effort into your studio to end up with mixes that sound just “okay."

You know your music projects deserve better. So why be satisfied with a crappy mix?

The good news?

There are only 3 secrets to getting a pro sound quickly:
  • SECRET 1: The #1 reason your tracks are falling flat is your MIX...
  • SECRET 2: The LESS time you spend on a mix, the better...
  • SECRET 3: You don’t need to have a perfect room or expensive gear (in fact, it’s better if you don’t)...
I’ll explain each one.

I’ll also share what you can do today to become a more skilled and more confident mixer without having to spend years struggling, buying expensive gear, or driving yourself crazy in the process.

First, a quick story you might find helpful...
The SELFISH Reason I Started This Site
Dan here, founder of the Pro Audio Files.

I’ll be the first to admit, I’m not a "natural" when it comes to mixing. I’m a drummer at heart...
Dan Comerchero
…so when I came to music school, one thing drove me crazy:

How can some people make mixing seem so... effortless?

Real talk? It p*ssed me off!

My teachers couldn’t tell me. My friends only shared bits and pieces. I researched online but I didn’t know whose advice to trust.

So I took matters into my own hands—

I managed to convince a few pro engineers to write articles… on the topics I was struggling with… and The Pro Audio Files was born!

Fast forward to today, the site is one of the most trusted pro audio resources for millions of musicians, producers, and engineers of all genres & levels from around the world.

I mention all this because you will NOT have to go through all of that! It will be much easier and faster.

In fact, we created something absolutely unique. My friend recently called it the “Netflix of pro audio”, and I gotta say, that’s a pretty good description, as you’ll realize below.

But now let’s talk about the 3 secrets you need to know...
Secret #1: A Killer Mix is Your Unfair Advantage
If you’re anything like me, you know how frustrating this is:

You know your music projects have the potential to be something special.

But when your mixes sound dinky and unprofessional... people don’t even want to listen!

Artists & labels know this, too...

A GREAT mix can make crappy songs sound good (you know… like polishing a turd).

And likewise, a crappy mix can easily RUIN a great song.

Which is why the pros get paid the big bucks.


Whether you want to climb the client ladder… Or you’re just sick of your music not getting the attention it deserves…

Mixing is your unfair advantage.

And becoming the best mixer you can be is a smart move.

The question is... HOW?
Secret #2: Avoid the DAW "Rabbit Hole" at All Costs
I always believed that if I just spent enough time on it, I’d get a solid mix.

Maybe even impress a few people.

But I was WRONG.

No matter how much time I spent on a mix...

…it still sounded crappy.

Actually, it was worse than that.

Because the MORE time I spent on a mix, the WORSE it got.

In short: every time I fired up my DAW I went down the rabbit hole!

The REAL problem?

When you tinker with your mix for too long, you lose the essence of the song.

That’s why you MUST avoid this at all costs!

But it’s only possible if you have confidence in your mix decisions.

Deep down I knew there had to be a better way—and there is. But it might not be what you think... as I'll reveal in secret #3.
Secret #3: Expensive Gear Won't Fix Your Mix
I love gear.

So I thought I needed more... and more expensive gear. But it never made a real difference.

Turns out, I got it all backward!

You don’t need expensive gear. In fact, it’s better if you DON’T rely on it.

Here’s why:

When I first started drumming, I had a flimsy beginner kit. But it was a blessing in disguise…

…because I had a great teacher that taught me the right TECHNIQUE.

So what happened? I learned how to get the best sound out of my first kit. And then when I played on high-end drums… it sounded freaking amazing!

Mixing is the same. High-end gear will never fix your mix...

...and you will get better faster if you DON'T rely on it. But only if you learn how to trust your skills.

And that’s where The Pro Audio Files comes in!

Today I'm PUMPED to introduce...

Time to Decide: You Have 2 Options
And your choice you make today will affect your path as a mixer.

Option 1:

You can ignore everything you’ve read here and continue mixing the way you always have. You'll probably never come back to this page, and your mixes will sound the same as they always have:
  • You’ll keep going down the "rabbit hole" — and still getting mixes that you’re not truly happy with
  • You’ll keep getting the same reactions to your mixes from other people
  • ​You’ll keep getting the same caliber of clients (and charging the same rate) for your mixes

Option 2:

You can join Pro Audio Files On Demand for 30 days without any risk. Just watch the videos, use the mixing techniques, and soon you will realize you now have everything you need to:
  • Craft remarkable, pro-sounding mixes you're proud to share
  • Be confident about your skills because you know exactly what to do to get the sound you want
  • ​Leave your friends & clients speechless—so you can increase your rates and work on the projects you really want to
Most importantly, you’ll be able to create mixes that you’re proud of for the rest of your life.

But all of this will only happen if you join right now.

Questions & Answers
How will I get access?
After you join, you'll get a link to login to the membership site and get instant access to all the courses, workshops, and downloadable sessions.
Which courses will I get access to?
As a member, you get every course from Danny Echevarria, Phil Mantione, Ian Vargo, Thomas Brett and Justin Colletti (coming this week). Plus, dozens of courses from David Glenn, Eric Tarr, and more.
Is the training only for Pro Tools?
Nope! While many of our pros mix in Pro Tools, the processes they teach are completely independent of any one particular DAW and will apply to Logic, Ableton, Cubase, Reaper, Fruity Loops, Studio One and other similar platforms.
Do I need to own specific plugins?
Nope! Regardless of specific plugins or gear the techniques are demonstrated on, all courses are taught conceptually, so you can apply it to whatever gear you're working with for any situation you're in.
What genres are featured in the course?
Your membership covers virtually all genres. There are many genre-specific courses on mixing Rock, Indie-Rock, Hip-Hop, Trap, EDM, Pop, and many more sub-genres. More importantly, you'll discover dozens of courses that teach techniques, strategies and mindsets that will easily apply to any genre, so your new skills transfer to every project.
What if I already own one of the courses?
Our membership is separate from individual courses. It's meant as an ongoing learning resource for musicians, producers, and engineers at an affordable monthly price. You get access to a library of 70+ courses and workshops, so even if you own one of the courses already, you'll get massive value from your membership.
How do I know when new courses are added?
As a member, you'll always see the newest releases when you log in. We'll also announce new releases ahead of time, and often give you early access before we release them to the public.
What's the difference between On Demand and downloadable courses?
Downloadable courses are one-time purchases. You buy the course once, and the videos and course files are yours to keep forever. On Demand is a monthly (or yearly) membership. When you join, you get unlimited streaming access to a wide variety of courses. You can't download the videos, but you can watch them at any time and download the course files. Plus, as a member, you get access to personal Mix Feedback from one of our contributors (1 mix each month).
Will it work for me?
I've built the Pro Audio Files over the past 10 years—I'm not going to ruin the site's reputation with a sub-par product. And I stand behind this membership 100%.

You can cancel at any time. And if you're unhappy with the membership for any reason, send an email to within 30 days, and we’ll refund your first month—no questions asked.
