What if I can’t make it to a live stream event?
Don’t worry, you will have access to a VOD (Video On Demand) replay of the event for as long as you’re subscribed.
Does it matter which DAW I use?
No. The files we provide are stemmed in wav format so you can just import them into your DAW, and get to mixing! We also include meter, tempo, and song information.
Does it matter what kind of plugins I own?
No, you don’t need to have the same plugins we have. Plugins are tools for audio just like a hammer is a tool for construction. Plugins come in a variety of colors & tones, and they each provide a way to sculpt your mix. We educate you on all kinds of plugins, when how and why to use them, and we often give you additional solutions using alternative plugins for solving mixing problems with similar results. As long as you understand the reasons behind the decision making, you’ll know what to do. Oh and pro-tip, every DAW comes with stock plugins that are more than good enough for Nail the Mix.
Do I have to enter the mix competition?
No. But, we encourage it because it’s fun, and you’ll learn more about your strengths and weaknesses as a mixer. You won’t win cool prizes if you don’t compete!
If I join down the road can I still access previous months?
No, you can only access the files and videos for the months you’ve paid for. If you want a previous month’s material, you can purchase each one separately.
But what if I subscribe midway through the month?
Don’t worry, you’ll have access to the current month you paid for plus our first month’s (November 2015) files.
What if I am already a podcast subscriber?
Thank you! Make sure and upgrade to Fan Level or higher, then send an email with proof of your subscription, username, and email address to email@example.com
What payment methods do you accept?
We accept credit cards or debit cards from Visa, Mastercard, and Discover.
Can I download the videos?
The videos are stream-able as long as you’re subscribed. However, they are not to be redistributed or rebroadcast in any way without explicit permission from Joey Sturgis Forum Podcast LLC.
Can I use these tracks for my portfolio?
