"I met Danny when he was Senior Instructor at SAE NYC. Daniel Wyatt, with his A-list credits and decades of teaching experience is hands down the most important mixing and mastering instructor on the planet right now. He has more successful graduates of his system than any other single teacher."
"I met Danny when he was in charge of Mixing and Mastering at Dubspot and we have been linked ever since. When I need the most up-to-date info on the latest plug-ins, workflows and techniques I check in with Danny. Period. I am really excited that there is now a complete online training center with production, composition, mixing and mastering and music business. I am in!"
"As a teacher, Daniel Wyatt wants you to win. His system is impeccable. He stays on your side until the picture is clear. NextLevelSound has no competition. It's in a class of its own. And I can make it work with my often busy schedule. NextLevelSound are the real innovators in the game right now."
Here's how it works:
We have ongoing Live Trainings taught by our Mentors for each Course.
The Live Trainings happen each week. See Our Master Calendar for Days and Times.
As a student you are welcome to attend all Live Trainings, drop into the ones that you are interested in or maybe missed, or even repeat the entire Course of Live Trainings for any of your Courses as often as you like.
All of our Live Trainings are recorded for Video-on-Demand, All of our classrooms are stocked with the most up-to-date curated Trainings.
The Video Self-Study option offers the exact same content as the Live Training experience.
And of course you can always attend any Live Trainings that fit your schedule.
All of our Mentors offer Open Office Hours each week for Students to come and ask questions LIVE and get LIVE feedback from the Mentor and fellow students for works-in-progress.
Regardless of whether you choose the Live Training or Video Self-Study option (or mix the two options to your needs) you are invited to attend any of the Open Office Hours for your courses.
Our Courses are designed to be universal and are not DAW-specific (except for certain production courses that are clearly labelled)

No, This system works for any genre of music. Our Mixing and Mastering courses we teach workflow, principles and advanced techniques of Mixing and Mastering that are applicable to any genre. Most of our students are EDM producers (some of them have reached top positions in Beatport charts), and music for film, ads and video game producers.
All the techniques shown during the course can be applied to any plugin-lines including stock DAW-plugins. All the examples are shown based on FabFilter, iZotope, SoundToys, UAD, Slate Digital, Plugin Alliance plugins. You can replace those plugins with alternatives of other developers/DAW stock plugins.
Most of the techniques shown on the course are applicable to any modern DAW that can host VST/AU/AAX plugins: Logic, Cubase, Ableton Live, Studio One, ProTools, FL Studio, Reaper etc.
Most of our students use their own tracks but if you don’t have materials we provide stems for Mixing and Mastering. We provide track stem in variety of different genres. Last two weeks of each Mixing/Mastering course is dedicated to mixing/mastering practice and shootouts: each student receives same stems and mix the track during two weeks, providing 1.0 mix version on first week class where we listen all the tracks and give feedback. On the second week students are submitting 2.0 mix that we listen during the class and give the feedback. Listening how different people mixed same track is highly beneficial for developing your mixing/mastering and ear training skills.
