If you want to know how I went from this…
.. then keep reading.
You spend hours on a mix and finally feel like it's getting close... only to compare it to a major-label record and feel totally lost and deflated.
The vocals aren’t sitting right in the mix. The low end sounds muddy and lacks power. Drums are either peaking too loudly above the mix or aren’t cutting through at all.
Your mix lacks the impact, balance and depth it needs to be competitive.
So it's back to the internet in search for more quick-fixes, random YouTube videos and so-called 'lessons' to try and save your mix...
...but you just end up even more confused, using tools & plugins that you don't understand and trying to apply techniques that aren't even relevant to heavy music.
With this pattern, your mix quality stalls and you will make very little progress towards achieving better mixes and getting more clients!
Hey, I'm Jordan Valeriote, and I've been producing and mixing full-time for almost a decade.
I've been able to work with bands like Silverstein, Forevermore, Neck Deep, Dead and Divine and Counterparts to name a few.
But I didn’t get there overnight.
Actually, my mixes sucked for a while, and I spent 2 years trying to teach myself how to mix. It’s not surprising that I made very little progress in those two years.
I was stuck, and I needed to make a change if I wanted to realize my dream of recording and mixing records full-time in my studio.
That’s when I started searching for a mentor and landed a job as an assistant/intern at a multi-million dollar studio.
During my time there, I got to watch true professionals record and mix real records. I got to look over the shoulders of platinum engineers and producers, soaking in all of the techniques and secrets they used to make hit records - things that would have taken me 10 years of trial and error to discover on my own!
After only 6 months assisting there, my recording and mixing had improved so much that I felt confident enough to quit and go full-time at my studio… and I never looked back!
Since then I’ve produced and mixed projects for labels like Rise Records, Hopeless, SolidState, and Universal. Plus I’ve helped bands make great sounding records that help them land management and record deals.
And I accomplished all of that out of a tiny 600 sqft studio, a small collection of gear and no audio schooling.
The secret ingredient that allowed me to improve more in 6 months than I had in 2 years was that opportunity to look over the shoulder of an actual pro engineer.
Truthfully, these opportunities are getting harder and harder to come by.
The old-school path of rising through the ranks in a pro studio and learning from mentors is almost completely gone now.
DISCLAIMER: THIS IS NOT FOR EVERYONE
The reason I’ve kept this program so exclusive is because it’s simply not for everyone.
In fact, I’ve found that it’s really for the top 2% or 3% of my followers who are committed to becoming better mixers.
If you’re looking for shortcuts... if you like to pretend that you know everything already... or if you think mixing is just a fun hobby... then this is not for you!
Hardcore Mixing requires that you are committed to your goals, have a strong desire to learn and become a kick-ass mixer. You must be ready to invest the time required to go through each phase and put into practice what you’re learning.
So don’t buy this program if it’s just going to be another product that sits on the shelf.
It’s only for you if you’re hungry to learn the secrets behind a professional mix, make changes and take your engineering career to a new level!
It’s my goal to help you overcome Mindless Mixing, Sloppy Session Syndrome and Mixing Misinformation… starting NOW.
With the Hardcore Mixing course, you get access to my complete M3 Method for Massive Mixes.
Overcome "Mindless Mixing" with the 5 Minute Pre-Mix Ritual:
Conquer "Sloppy Session Syndrome" with my No-Fail Mix Prep Process:
Forget endless "Mixing Misinformation." Instead, level-up your mix skills with my Virtual Intern Access training:
At my normal private mix lesson rate of $150/hour, this portion alone is worth $900
"I was working on a mix of a song that I wasn’t happy with, and decided to mix it from scratch after watching this course. I, and the band, couldn’t believe the difference. It was on a totally different level. Everything was more clear, punched a lot more, sounded bigger and just straight up more professional. Even mixing not “hardcore” tracks are coming out a lot better than ever before, and I’m starting to get a lot more jobs just mixing.
Since watching these, business has improved so much that I was actually able to quit my shitty part time job and am now finally working full time at my studio."
"I landed a really serious record to me last night and I feel I owe it all to you.
I would have paid 3 times what I did had I known how much these videos would clear up for me. I bought 10 years of knowledge for next to nothing. Unreal man."
"I spent years learning how to make my mixes sounds tighter, bigger and more powerful. No matter what gear I had or what I what I tried - I struggled.
I always enjoyed Jordan's mixes - they had what mine were lacking. The clarity and the power, the punch and the low end - the mixes just sounded right regardless of the speakers, headphones, etc.
When I saw the opportunity to purchase the Hardcore mixing courses and watch how you approached your mixes - I jumped on it! It opened my eyes to a lot of things - especially drums. I always struggled to get my drums to sit correctly - they always lacked the punch and clarity I needed. Your course helped me understand how to achieve what I struggled with.
What I have learned from the courses really helped jump me to the next step in quality, consistency and knowledge. Everything that the course offers is worth it - it is simple to understand. Regardless of what DAW you use, plug ins you have access to or the style of music you are looking to work on - the information is essential and easy to apply in any situation! This is coming from a guy that used to use ONLY analog equipment. Thanks again for putting this stuff together!
"Man, I can't thank you enough. I'm a full-time college student studying Audio Production… Mixing has always been the one part of audio that really really grabbed my attention and love.
Even though I felt like I had some innate talent in a good ear, I wasn't able to get anything to sound how I wanted and this is because I didn't know the tools and how to get where I wanted. There is SO MUCH MISINFORMATION lying around the internet…
I went for it, signed up, And suddenly, something clicked. You gave me the keys, and it happened. I went from complete amateur, and now I feel I could dare to call myself semi-pro. For the first time I can COMPARE my mix TO A PRO and say, "yeah I could mix for those labels and bands.” Again, THANK YOU JORDAN.
"I had a bad experience with one of those private recording colleges. Tons of buck for not a lot of bang. However, Hardcore Mixing was different.
It is safe to say that the sounds of all my mixes have been taken to the next level. In fact, as a result, I have made the decision to start a side-business in recording and mixing. My $20,000 college diploma wasn't able to provide that level of confidence!
Once again, thank you Jordan for putting together this enormously valuable product. It has taken my mixing game to new heights in a ridiculously short amount of time. My drums sound better, my guitars and bass sound huge and my vocals sound crisp and clean. You could easily charge much more!
"After my time with Hardcore Mixing my skills have improved immensely. The course really helped me with attacking the mix vs messing around with individual elements without direction.
I now have a plan that I apply to any mix situation that increases my speed, confidence, and overall sound. I have my go to plugins and I have now setup similar fx busses to yours and they are all ready to go at any moment so I'm not digging through menus and being taken out of the moment.
This process has helped me mix more efficiently which has led to more projects and this was worth the cost of the course alone."
In the past, aspiring engineers had mentors and teachers that they shadowed and learned from. That's how the all-star mixers learned the craft and got to where they are now.
In today's world, with the ability to produce and mix music from anywhere, the opportunity to shadow a pro is harder and harder to come by… actually it’s almost impossible for most people.
This course is my way of letting you shadow me on a professional mix. I don't hold anything back - you'll see all of my tricks and secrets.
A few minutes from now, after purchasing, you’ll get access to the entire course and start printing your cheatsheets, loading up the multitracks and watching the training videos.
After taking this course, you'll have a solid mixing system in place PLUS the confidence and knowledge you need to start cranking out professional, record-quality mixes.
Don't buy another plugin or expensive compressor. There isn't any piece of equipment that will solve your mixing issues... you must invest in yourself and commit to growing as a mixer.

I sold version 1 of this course at almost double the price. This is the lowest offer I ever plan to make.
The M3 Method for Massive Mixes is my all-in-one mixing system designed to help you crank out consistent, competitive mixes. It gives you a concrete framework to follow every time you mix a song so that you never get stuck or wonder how to approach a mix.
This course will translate perfectly to rock, alternative, pop and any other genre with live instruments like drums, bass, guitar, etc. I wouldn't recommend this course if you only mix hip-hop or electronic music.
In fact, check out this before/after example of a blues mix from a Hardcore Mixing student:
After Hardcore Mixing:
"Going back from what I was doing a couple of months ago to what I can do now is seriously shocking to me and very exciting at the same time. The passion that I felt for mixing back in 2011 is all coming back now and I really want to go forward with this as a career. I have so much more confidence now than I did even a few months ago.
I feel like I should be giving you more money for the course than what I paid! You've not only allowed me to dramatically improve my mixing but you've also given me the tools to become motivated again, something I desperately needed."
Until I found Hardcore Mixing, I had only been mixing with what little direction I had and my mixes were an inarguable proof of that. The fact that I was able to take this course and follow along with a complete project from start to finish and see where my mistakes were in my mixes and see how a professional handles the same obstacles that I was having has been invaluable to the progress and growth of my work.
After going through the Hardcore Mixing course, I now have mixes I can be proud of, musicians that want my style and touch, and a better understanding on why and how mixes are engineered in a professional atmosphere.
Another great star point about these courses is how open the communication is. I remember having questions during the course and Jordan responding almost instantly and always willing to help. I was even able to call him and talk to him over the phone which was huge for me knowing that not only does this guy know what he’s talking about, but he genuinely cares about our success and delivering nothing but quality to his students and customers.
P.S.: What are your mixes going to sound like 6 months from now if you stay on your current path? Are you going to reach your goals of mixing for a living or finally making your songs sound like a record? If you don't invest in Hardcore Mixing, chances are you'll still be struggling with the same roadblocks that you are right now… mixing slowly, feeling overwhelmed and falling behind those who are taking the leap.
I've seen this training completely change the course of peoples' careers in music and beyond, giving them the confidence and freedom to do what they love and follow their dreams. If you're not satisfied with what you get, remember you can contact me within 60 days for a refund (and keep the bonuses).
