Hi!  Welcome to the Next Level Sound Mixing and Mastering Department!

Having designed courses for the some of the biggest schools in the world, I am very happy to say that the Next Level Sound Mixing and Mastering Program is the most in-depth, up-to-date, and comprehensive curriculum that I have ever designed.

More about Daniel

Your mentor for the course (Daniel Wyatt) will walk you through every step needed to produce real world expensive studio results using your ‘in the box’ DAW’s and Plugins. Danny started out with the real hardware and now uses software emulations exclusively to achieve all of the sound, without the huge cost and unreliability of hardware counterparts.

Daniel Wyatt is multi-platinum, Grammy and Emmy nominated audio engineer with credits from Ultra Records to Old Dirty Bastard to Norah Jones, and one of the most influential mixing and mastering instructors and course designers. In the last decade he taught over 1,000 producers and audio engineers how to mix and master modern styles of music from deep house, minimal techno, and trance to hip hop, trap, dubstep, and drum’n’bass. Many of his students have had their tracks hit the iTunes and Beatport charts.



You need a systematic approach to mixing and mastering


You spend a lot of time mixing but are not happy with the results


You are trying to piece your knowledge together with Youtube and forums but it's not working


You compare your tracks to commercial releases and know you are missing something.





The Program is Divided Into 4 Courses


Hi, thanks for looking into the details!

Mixing Foundations is the first course in the Program.

Regardless of your experience level I really recommend you start here.

Some people skip Mixing Foundations, only to go back later and take the course.

Mixing Foundations is a very in-depth exploration of the fundamentals of mixing.

I usually joke that it's the hardest course in the Mixing and Mastering Program -- just because everything after it seems easy.  ;)

- Danny

  • Build a powerful mix
  • Use reference tracks to guide your mixing decisions

  • Finish more tracks with the consistent professional level of the sound

The Next Level Trainings Start:  Feb 7th, 2019

"Before I started the course I thought I knew already a lot of things over all those years I’ve been doing productions. But already after lesson 1 I realised I was doing the same “mistakes” everyone does. So I’m very happy that I followed these courses because it gave me a workflow which I can stick too and which make my production, mixing and mastering a lot quicker and much more efficient!"


"Finally a course that really shows the techniques to get that professional warm and fat sound I was aiming for. Danny’s cool and encouraging attitude has helped me to transform my music and take it to a totally different level. The best part for me was to mix a track before class and then see Danny mix the exact same track. This plus the possibility to ask questions during the course and for 1 hour per week during office hours, made mixing foundations a priceless experience."


"I have been studying with Daniel Wyatt and using his techniques now for several years. I was really excited when Hardwell played one of my early tracks — and now Tiesto! Danny keeps me up-to-date with all of his new techniques and workflows — and it’s made all of the difference in my sound"


Design Your Own Study Experience

As you can see, the Mixing and Mastering course is very comprehensive. It needs to be in order to ensure you come out of it able to create mixes and masters that compete with commercial tracks in your genre. It is the world’s most advanced professional mixing and mastering system and we have 2 ways to study. You can attend live lessons or you can watch pre-recorded lessons. The best thing is you don’t need to choose one or the other. You can mix and match as you go, according to your own schedule.
