what our members have to say

"After one of the first few weeks of joining the Pro Production System, I learned more in that week than I did in the past 3 years of just trial and error, YouTube videos, and even going to school."

"Jordan Valeriote says if 'this' is your goal... if you want your music to sound like 'this'... do these exact steps... don't deviate, and you'll get there. And you know what... you will. Because I got it."

"Before taking Jordan's Mix Vault course, my mixes sounded really boring... weak, and amateur... and I honestly had no clue what I was doing. Since then, my life has changed dramatically. I went from slaving at a day job that I really hated, to now mixing bands as my full time job

Best of all though is that I now have the freedom to choose who I work with instead of actually having to accept any project that comes my way."

"These courses allowed me to quit my job as a sales associate and pursue my studio full time. They've allowed me to be more confident in myself... I feel I can take on any musician, any situation, and produce a result that is not only listenable but competitive and very much real-world."

"My mixes are much quicker... and the quality is better. That's just a win-win for me. I'm doing better work in less time, which means I'm making more money, and my clients are happy."

So if you want to…

  • Produce competitive, professional quality records that sound just as good as (if not better than) your favorite records...
  • Have a completely booked calendar with bands reserving studio time months in advance…
  • Accelerate how quickly you track, edit and mix your projects so you’re getting more work done in half the time…
  • Know exactly what to do within seconds of walking in the studio… instead of pulling your hair out wondering what you’re doing wrong and searching YouTube tutorials to find the answers…
  • Elevate yourself above the masses of confused newbies out there and become a sought-after producer in your scene and beyond…
  • Finally feel confident in the studio that no matter what band walks in, what their skill level is, or what they ask… you’ll make them sound tight, exciting and professional…
  • Make more money recording and producing than you ever have before… and start living your dream life working in the music industry full-time…

If any of that sounds like something you want…
Then make sure you clear away distractions and read carefully…

Because I’m about to give you access to a full-picture, step-by-step audio training experience that will show you how to get pro-caliber
tracking, editing and mixing down to a simple science.

Hear the Before / After differences from some of our members:



















Only YOU know whether your work sounds more like the before or the after in those examples. 
And you may wonder how these engineers were able to transform their work from amateur to pro and experience all this success in the studio…
While most others are simply stuck spinning their wheels, unable to get the quality they’re after.
That’s actually an easy question to answer...
It comes down to whether or not you’re approaching records like a Full Stack Producer.
Without full-stack skills in tracking, editing and mixing….
It’s going to be really hard - maybe impossible - to build a successful career in the studio today.
Instead of control and consistency, you’ll always be at the mercy of the gear or clients you have.
So if you feel frustrated to no end with your mixes…

Settling for amateur mixes that make you cringe...

It’s likely because you’ve been focusing on the WRONG things this whole time… 

Spending your time researching gear or room physics...

Wasting money on the latest “holy grail” plugin or piece of gear...

and blowing hundreds of hours on YouTube, listening to advice that pulls you in multiple directions at once…

None of which is going to get you further ahead.

I don’t want you to waste any more of your time.

And I don’t want you to keep waiting and wishing while time and opportunity pass you by - no matter what your goal is…

Maybe you’d like to start working with clients and generate a side income so you can pay for your gear and pad your lifestyle…

Maybe you record and mix your own music, but you’re tired of your songs sticking out like a sore thumb on Spotify…

Or maybe you have the same dream I did - to ditch the 9-5 and make a living as a full-time producer.

I don’t know your exact situation… but I DO know that a lot of people who struggle in the studio feel like there’s a ticking clock in the background of their life…

And if it hits zero, you may end up like so many others who were once passionate about music but had to “grow up” and move on because they couldn’t find a way to make ends meet.

That’s why it’s so important to stop wasting time, and instead, to start getting the step-by-step formula and experience from someone who has been in your shoes and knows how to get you to where you want to be

Can you imagine how much frustration and wasted time you could eliminate…

And how much more music you could record, mix and release…

All while building up your reputation as a producer who provides gold-standard results every time?

Baz T.

"I've learned more in the last 6 weeks than I have in the last 4 years. My biggest take away in the last 6 weeks is keeping everything organized and to get it right at the start rather than diving in to fix everything later on."

Enrico M.

"There have been a lot of aha and illuminations thanks to this course and the calls. Every mix I do sounds way better than the previous!"

Braeden L.

"Purchasing the PPS has been the best thing I’ve done for myself in several years. This course is more helpful than almost anything I learned in audio school!

My biggest takeaway was the tips and tricks that Jordan shows in Hardcore Tracking to get musicians to record their parts perfectly even if they can’t play it. That’s been such a huge help for me. Learning to adapt that workflow is going to make my work so much better, and I can’t wait to keep practicing them and get more efficient with those tricks."

Let Me Tell You Who I Am 

And Why You Should Listen To Me

Let me tell you who i am and why you should listen to me

My name is Jordan Valeriote… 
I’m the Founder of Hardcore Music Studio.

Over the past 10+ years I’ve been able to live my dream as a producer, engineer and mixer.
I’ve worked on records for bands like Silverstein, Neck Deep,  Emery, Intervals, Counterparts, Forevermore, Auras, and many more… 

I’ve partnered with record labels like SolidState, Hopeless, Rise Records and Universal…
And lately I've been mentoring aspiring engineers like you and turning them into real paid professionals.

And it doesn’t matter if…

  • You’re currently stuck at a soul-sucking day job you hate and can only work on recording and mixing part-time… 
  • You’re riddled with self-doubt and aren’t sure if you can “make it” in the music industry…
  • You feel frustrated and discouraged by how your mixes sound compared to commercial records…
  • You spend limited studio time going in circles on the same song or trying to find the right mix…
  • You have a hard time finishing projects…
  • You don’t have expensive gear… a college degree… or a fancy studio room…
  • You’ve spent hundreds of hours watching YouTube tutorials, thousands of dollars on studio equipment, tried tons of techniques and tricks… yet your mix still sounds muddy and thin… 
  • Or you feel like you’re ready to give up a lot of the time… but you keep getting pulled back in because you want this so bad.

No matter where you’re starting from today… the information on this page will be a complete game-changer for you…  

Just like it was for me.


I started recording just like you probably did

With a tiny space the size of a bedroom… a very small collection of gear… no college degree

And I just tried to teach myself.


I didn’t know what a plugin was…

I didn’t know how to use EQ, compression or anything like that.

And like you’d expect… My recordings SUCKED.

Even during times when I thought I was nailing the mix and felt pretty good about a project I was working on…

I’d compare it to another record… 

Or do a “car test”… 

And bury my head in my hands feeling crushed because of how thin and weak it sounded… like there was a blanket over the speakers…

And at a complete loss because I had no clue what I was doing wrong

So I did what a lot of guys do… 

And went down a bunch of rabbit holes to try and find a solution. 

I hung out on the Gearslutz forums, subscribed to a bunch of recording industry magazines… 

But their advice was always the same.

They’d say I needed different gear…

A miracle new plugin…

Or some magical mixing trick, fancy mics, or high-end preamps.

For 2 years I searched for answers and tried all the advice out there

But my recordings still sounded like lame basement demos… 

And what started out as something I loved became very frustrating

I was sick of being embarrassed of my recordings… feeling like a lost cause in the studio…

And worse yet, I was still working at a gas station to pay my bills

Spending more time stuck in a crummy day job than trying to make my dreams come true. 

I began wondering if everyone else was right…

If I should call it quits and get a “normal” job like my family told me to do. 

When I finally admitted that teaching myself wasn’t working, I spent 6 months as an intern at a studio in Toronto.

In between the typical “intern stuff,” like taking out the trash, cleaning the floors, wiping down the gear, going on food runs and all of that...

I also got to be a fly on the wall in sessions with real producers.

It was while watching John Fields track a platinum Jonas Brothers record that I had a true lightbulb moment.

In a matter of days, it became absolutely clear what I’d been doing wrong... and what was making my work sound like basement quality demos until that point.

And then after I purchased that Jonas Brothers record on its release date…
Went back to my car and put it in… And listened to that final CLA mix…

My mind was blown.

The Album Sounded Almost EXACTLY The Same As I Heard In The Studio Months Before

I was expecting that all the drums would be replaced by the mixer’s samples… the tones would be radically EQ’d and different…

But it wasn’t. 

It sounded just like I’d remembered… only a bit more polished.

This was so shocking to me because as an amateur music engineer…

I was used to changing EVERYTHING during the mix.

But that’s when I realized I had it totally backwards

Instead of reinventing everything in the mix phase, the raw tracks needed to sound as close to a finished mix as possible… 

That’s how the pros did it.

I knew I needed to completely change how I went about recording albums

So, I went on a mission to uncover and conquer everything that was keeping my records from sounding label-quality… 

And did everything I could to connect with more industry prosstudy their recordsask them questions… and take that back to my studio and try it for myself. 

After years of fine-tuning and testing… 

I Got Down The Science Of Finishing Albums Like Clockwork With Pro-Level Quality In The Studio

After that I was able to give bands a final product that could stand toe-to-toe with commercial releases… 

Which led to my studio getting booked months in advance… 

And opened the door for me to become a full-time music producer

Recording and mixing hundreds of songs for local musicians…

Getting the attention and respect of bands like Silverstein who chose to pass up on recording in iconic studios across the country to record with me in my small 300 square foot space

And the opportunity to work on multiple big label releases for Rise Records, Tooth & Nail, Universal, Victory Records and more.

Most importantly… 

I’ve distilled everything I know down into a step-by-step process to help YOU become a successful, pro-caliber music producer.

But before you take that step… you’ve gotta face the facts:

That continuing to do what you’ve always done will NOT get you any further, any faster…

And that some of the training you’ve spent so much time on might have actually been making things worse. 

But the good news is that making up ground and starting to see the results I’ve been talking about will likely be faster than you think…

Just like it was for these high-level music producers who were once in the same boat you’re in right now: 

Nick G.

"I Was Able To Quit My Part Time Job And Am Finally Working At My Studio Full Time."

“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 non ‘hardcore’ tracks is coming out 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 at my studio full time.

Dave S.

"It's a dream I never knew I had, come true!"

"Before I joined HCMS, I had only attempted playing around with my own music, trying to make it sound good, but I was always painfully aware how unprofessional it was. When I fell prey to some top notch marketing and joined a HCMS webinar, I was immediately intrigued, but I was hesitant to bite the bullet and actually pay for these courses that promised a lot... but could they deliver?
I can't begin to describe the relief I felt as I devoured these courses. So much confusion and frustration was swept away as I watched a professional show me exactly how to approach an entire production from start to finish, step-by-step, in detail. The feeling of excitement as I learned and applied these techniques to the multitracks provided was fantastic! For the first time ever, I not only felt equipped to make better music myself, but I had the confidence to take on other people's music too! I had never even contemplated that before. I should point out that I studied music performance and production in college for 3 years, and the production side of it only ever confused and bored me. Now I'm working on my first paid EP project for another band! It's a dream I never knew I had, come true!"

Ben J.

"I have had almost 14 years of experience, and have never made progress quite like this."

"I have had almost 14 years of experience, and have never made progress quite like this. I listen back to my mixes now, whether it's in the studio or on headphones or even in the car and I am completely blown away by the results. It puts a huge smile on my face and has rekindled my desire and passion for mixing. I cannot stress how much becoming a part of your courses has helped to transform my mixes and my entire mindset towards mixing."

James B.

"Way more punch, clarity and depth"

"I went to Uni and got a 1st Class music production degree but was still pretty clueless about mixing. I'm really grateful to Jordan for sharing all this. I've now adopted his no-nonsense, streamlined approach, aimed at quick, instinctive mixing. I'm loving it. Before this course, my metal mixes were okay, but there was something missing to get them into that radio-ready pro category. Since devouring some of the content on the course, my mixes already sound better. Way more punch, clarity and depth. I'm super excited about it."

Kevin C.

“You Not Only Helped Me Dramatically Improve My Work, But You Also Motivated Me Again… Something I Desperately Needed.”

“Looking back on what I was doing a couple of months ago to what I can do now is shocking and exciting at the same time. The passion I felt for mixing back when I first started is all coming back now. And I have so much more confidence than I did a few months ago.

You’ve not only allowed me to dramatically improve my work, but you’ve also given me the tools to become motivated again, something I desperately needed.”

Austin H.

"An absolute plethora of working knowledge"

"I've bought a number of courses from you and so far, yours have always had a fantastic bang for your buck. I've taken away an absolute plethora of working knowledge that I've been able to implement immediately. I also come around multiple times a year to re-watch videos etc when I feel I need brushing up on certain skills. Thanks for all that you do for this community and I hope to learn even more from you in the future."

Shawn B.

"Learned more in 5 months than I did in 2 years of school!"

"I paid a TON of money for the Art Institute of Vancouver's Recording Arts Program and to be honest, I've learned more in 5 months of Jordan's courses than I did in 2 years of school. If I were to do it again, I wouldn't pay all that money to go to school. In the last year and a half, I have been able to take my studio full time, launch a second company and land a dream job. None of this would have been possible without Hardcore Tracking and your other courses. I am forever grateful."

Artur B.

“I Can’t Even Express The Joy Of Making My Own Songs With Pro-Quality Production!”

“A couple of years ago my mixes sounded like crap. I’m laughing at myself thinking about the poor quality of my work. Thanks to Jordan I’ve been able to start my own studio and recently released an album with my band 100% produced by me. I can’t even express the joy of making my own songs and getting them to have pro-quality sound!”

Shannon S.

“It’s Insane How Punchy And Tight My Mixes Are Now!”

“It's insane how punchy and tight all my mixes are sounding after watching your videos. You've really helped me a lot in my career as an audio engineer. Can't thank you enough.”

Gyan K.

"I've learned to up the detail in everything"

"It's all way more detailed than I imagined it to be. I’ve learned to up the detail in everything, mainly in tracking and automation, but to also be efficient and keep a steady workflow."

Chris L.

“For The First Time I Can Compare My Mix To A Pro.”

“Even though I felt like I had some innate talent and a good ear… I wasn’t able to get anything to sound how I wanted. Because I didn’t know the right tools and how to get where I wanted. There is SO MUCH MISINFORMATION lying around the internet

So I went for it, signed up for your course, and suddenly something clicked. You gave me the keys and it happened. For the first time, I can compare my mix to a pro and say, ‘Yeah, I could mix for those labels and bands.’ Thank you, Jordan!”

William M.

“I Did A Mix For A Friend… And He Compared It To An As I Lay Dying Record!”

“I would like to thank you for your service and training. I did a mix for a friend of mine the other day and he was comparing it to an As I Lay Dying album. He loved the mix and was happy it was competitive with pro mixes. Thanks again!”

Diego E.

“Suddenly More Bands Want To Work With Me!”

“I cannot express how thankful I am. Suddenly more and more bands want to work with me to the point that I think I could make a decent income from this! I wanted to emphasize that apart from all the technical stuff I'm learning in the courses, what I think really made the difference to me is the motivation you gave me. Just sharing your experience in this field and all the passion you have about it really gets through the screen. Again, thank you!”

DC Mabon

“I can NOW mix/master to a commercial standard, and owe it all to you!”

"If someone had told me 7 years ago to simply do WHATEVER the track needs to sound how you want it - no matter how extreme it may seem - I would have saved TONS of time and money! Doh! I can NOW mix/master to a commercial standard, and owe it all to you! I can now put my mixes on shuffle on my iPod, and NOT cringe when my mix comes on next to a professional production."

Ryan M.

“Recordings sound 100x better.”

"This is hands down the best investment I ever made with my recording/mixing career. School is great for basics, but what Jordan does with this course is in-depth. I love that I can reference back to the material and have the cheatsheets for a helpful hand when needed. My recordings have gone quicker, smoother, and sound 100x better than they used to. I love that Jordan thought of the fact that most of us have home studios with smaller rooms and included the bonus features of tracking in a small room! I have learned and applied more from Jordan's tracking course than what I learned in school 10 years ago!"

Starting right now, you can join these successful music producers… 

And earn tons of new clients that keep coming back because you give them a pro-level studio experience…

With a commercial-record quality product… 

That makes you one of the most respected music engineers in your area, scene and beyond… 

And gives you the freedom to spend more time working on music, and maybe even leave your boring 9-5 job and make a living doing what you love.

All of these editing lessons have been adapted for each major DAW… 

So no matter what you’re using, you don’t have to figure out how to adapt my workflows to your situation. 

Editing is one of the most important aspects of creating a high quality product… 

So if you want to go anywhere with engineering, and if you want your recordings to compete with the best commercial albums… 

You need to be able to edit like a pro.

And on top of that…

When you sign up for the Professional Production System you’ll also get…

For the next 6-weeks you, me and the other members of the Professional Production System will jump on a Zoom call together once per week… 

And I’ll guide you through every phase of the system… so you know exactly how to implement each step and make noticeable improvements to your recordings beginning the very first week. 

Plus— this is a chance for you to ask me any questions you may have in-person… and enjoy a live interactive experience with other like-minded members in the group… 

So you can come out of every group coaching session with clarity, confidence and deep connections with other PPS producers.

A Pro-Certified System Like This That Gives Away Every Secret Would Normally Cost You Thousands Of Dollars…

It would take hundreds of hours of your time, too. 

For example…

If you were to try and get an online audio degree from Berklee, it would cost you more than $60,000 and 120 credit hours to get a bunch of theory, lectures and homework… 

But no real life application

In fact, some guys who went to audio school and then used the Professional Production System afterwards…

Said this system did more for them than the expensive education.

But I won’t charge you anywhere near $60,000… 

I won’t charge 1/10 of that for $6,000… 

And I won’t even charge you the $2,091 it would cost to get all these programs separately… and have 6 Zoom calls with me…


When you invest in the Professional Production System right now today, you’ll get everything in the system for just $997.

Now I know that’s probably a higher price than you’ve seen some other places…

But remember…

The Professional Production System is a FULL solution to boosting your music production quality… 

Which is something completely different from what you’ll find anywhere else… 

Because while others are giving you tips and tricks that they’ve found helpful…

I’m “giving away the farm”... taking you by the hand… and showing you my entire step-by-step production process

This system is like an accelerator course that’s so in-depth yet so easy to follow that it’ll work like a launchpad… and take your skills to the next level, beginning the very first session.

See — in other membership sites or courses…

You’ll probably learn from a few different producers… pick up 1 or 2 tips each month… and then have to try and figure out how exactly those tips fit into your studio time… (if they even do)...

And if that’s something you’re into then that’s fine…

There’s some really cool stuff out there.

But the Professional Production System is different…

Because not only will you get dozens of my best tips and secrets over the next few weeks… 

But you’ll get so much more than that.

You’ll get a full-on pro-level production experience with yours truly… 

And come out of this course with the complete understanding, capability and confidence you need to become a respected and celebrated music producer.

I like to think of the difference between my program and others like baking cookies…

You can try to pick random parts from a bunch of different recipes… throw them all together… and see how it goes…

Or you can follow one recipe that’s proven to bake delicious, gooey chocolate chip cookies… and have them hot and ready much faster because you followed one recipe the whole way through.

I hope you see the difference.

Plus you’re going to save so much time and money in the long run… 

And cut away years of trial-and-error by learning the RIGHT way instead of listening to the thousands of tidbits of conflicting information out there on YouTube or gear forums.

Instead you’ll access a full system that conditions your ears and builds upon your skills… 

So you can rapidly develop your capability, confidence and control over every tracking, editing and mixing session.

Just like Alejandro C. who says,

Alejandro c.

Investing in your PPS course is the best money I ever spent. The difference is huge…

Before your course I was always struggling with the mix, always back and forth…

After your course I almost have my mix on the first try! I really appreciate you sharing your knowledge and experience in such a transparent way. I took other mixing courses and lessons but none clicked like yours didIt really is a game changer.”

I don’t want you to miss out on this…

That’s why in just a moment, I’ll show you how you can split up this price into very affordable payments… 

So you can own the Professional Production System for 6 monthly payments of just $197

And to make this opportunity even more valuable I’ve also added… 

5 FREE Bonuses ($2,685 Value) That You Can’t Get Anywhere Else

Bonus #1: Digital Production Blueprint ($397 Value FREE!)

Bonus #1: Digital Production Blueprint ($397 Value FREE!)

Can you really produce album quality mixes using programmed drums and amp sims?

I discovered that the answer is YES

And inside the Digital Production Blueprint I’ll show you exactly how to do it too… 

So you can finally achieve satisfying and full guitar tones… guarantee your drums sound like a real human is playing them (and get them to sit perfectly in the mix). Plus…

  • I’ll take a song that I already mixed with real drums and real amps… and re-record and re-produce the entire song using only programmed drums and amp sims… (and guess what… it’s going to sound even better than the original)...
  • You’ll get to watch my entire process to see exactly how I build a realistic and pro-caliber production using only these tools… (which is like an entire masterclass in tracking that you get for free)...
  • I surveyed over 100 hard rock and metal audio engineers about the digital production tools that give them the BEST sound from tracking to final product… and I’ll reveal them all to you inside
  • You’ll also learn the biggest pitfalls and backpocket principles you should keep in mind anytime you use programmed drums… and a simple approach to guitar amp sims that’s so easy it’ll save you hundreds and maybe even thousands of hours of frustration…
  • Plus a huge BONUS lesson by Auras and Intervals drummer Nathan Bulla called “Programming Like A Real Drummer”... (you’ll find out from one of the most talented and respected drummers in the scene today exactly how he writes and programs realistic drum parts.)

Bonus #2: Complete Drum Sample Library ($147 Value FREE!)

Bonus #2: Complete Drum Sample Library ($147 Value FREE!)

I think it’s safe to say that one of the hardest things to get right in the mix is the drums.

Now, I don’t know about you, but I have spent thousands of dollars on drum sample libraries over the years that did not work for my mixes… 

Until finally I just got fed up and decided to create my own

It took a whole lot of trial and error… but eventually I ended up with a solid library of kicks, snares and toms that would finally cut through my heavy mixes and give me the drum sound I was after

So when you sign up for the Professional Production System today…

I want to save you all the hassle of sifting through expensive drum sample libraries… or trying to create your own…

And instead, I’m just going to give you my entire, private, custom drum sample library for FREE.

These are made for rock and heavy music, but also sound great when augmenting drums in other genres as well…

In this bonus you’ll get…

  • 6 different kick drums
  • 8 different snare drums
  • 1 set of toms… 
  • Plus my Mix FX Pack full of reverse snares, cymbal swells, big crescendos, bass drops that are different lengths and are tuned to every note you can possibly need…

So you can just drag and drop these effects into your projects instantly.

Platinum Component #1: 12 week PPS Pod Experience ($1,997 value)

The PPS Pod experience adds high-touch mentorship to your PPS training.

You’ll get hands-on guidance and support from an HCMS expert coach in a small group setting (3-5 members per pod).

That means for 12 weeks, you get unlimited access to your coach via a private pod chat. This is all about making sure you have expert help whenever you need it, so that none of your questions go unanswered.

I have hand selected the HCMS expert coaches for their experience and knowledge. Each are longstanding HCMS members who know the material inside-out, have achieved pro-caliber mixes and have all carved out their respective niches as paid, professional producer/engineers.

But listen closely…

Because of this perk… I’ve limited the amount of slots available to join the Platinum package to just 15 4 people.

So if you want to get on-demand answers and support over the next 12 weeks… and gain exclusive and personalized insights that’ll help you for the rest of your career in the studio… 

Make sure you act fast. Sign up for the Platinum Package before all 15 4 slots are filled.

Platinum Component #2: Unlimited Mix Critiques ($497 Value)

And give you feedback on what to improve… ways that you’re crushing it… and how to turn your mixes into something that blows everything else out of the water

Your PPS Pod coach is available to give you unlimited feedback on your mixes during the entire 12-week Pod experience.

You won’t find this anywhere else!

Our coaches love being able to help up and coming audio engineers like you become the best at your craft

And can’t wait to help your mixes evolve rapidly!

Platinum Component #3: Studio Business Bootcamp Training ($497 Value)

And earn more money doing it than you likely believe possible right now

Then you don’t want to miss the Studio Business Bootcamp Training… 

Inside Studio Business Bootcamp Training you’ll learn…

  • How to start thinking like a successful producer (not a broke musician)... and the core mindset shifts you must make today if you want to start getting paid “the big bucks” to produce…
  • The "Studio Growth Engine" behind every successful studio… and how to get yours humming
  • A step-by-step guide on how to create your own personal studio brandbuild your website… and set your prices so musicians and bands have loads of respect for you before they even set foot in your studio
  • Learn the proven strategies that the most successful audio engineers are using to land new clients… (these strategies flat out WORK… and once you start using them you’ll have no problem keeping your calendar full.)
  • How to have artists begging to work with YOU (instead of the other way around) by implementing what I call the “Gatekeeper Framework”… (all successful audio engineers use this framework to attract top talent and stay in high demand year round.)
  • A super simple way to manage your finances and stay profitable with the Studio Banking System… (I know managing finances doesn’t sound very “sexy”... but this system will help you avoid dumb purchases, gear debt and will keep hundreds if not thousands of dollars of cash in your pocket each month.)

All eyes and ears are on you in this 1 hour private call with your pod coach.

David H.

"You could easily charge much more!"

"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!"

Don L.

"Unreal man."

"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."

Danny B.

"Bands across the UK are now booking me."

"The courses are spot on, I have learnt so much and my mixes have gone from amateur to pretty damn good I would like to think. Bands from across the UK are now booking me and I'm preparing to make the jump between part freelance/part time employment to full time freelance and get rid of my job! I couldn't have done it without you!"

Keith V.

"The difference is extreme!"

"I applied your method to a song that I already mixed and released for my band.

WOW! The difference is extreme! The new mix sounds exciting and full. By comparison, the old mix sounds like there's a blanket on the speakers. I am beyond happy with the results and can't wait to apply what I've learned to more projects."

Eric D.

"The only course that makes my mixes sound pro."

"I have read a lot of books on mixing and watched a ton of video tutorials online on the same subject. Jordan's mixing course is by far the only course that makes my mixes sound pro."

Kieran K.

"Mix Vault has improved my mixes insanely."

"Mix Vault has improved my mixes insanely. I am able to mix much more quickly and efficiently with a way better end result.

I started this course as a full time employee and student so my mixing was very part time, but during these past four months something sparked. Since December 2016, I have been doing this full time. I am booked all the way out until May. I never would've thought that would happen, but I am very lucky, and super thankful for the awesome resources you've provided!"

Chris L.

"Wouldn't be where I am today."

"It was a struggle at first paying the rent and all the bills associated with the studio. After purchasing Jordan’s Hardcore Mixing last year it has helped me open doors and achieve goals that I thought weren’t possible for me. I purchased Hardcore Tracking along with Mixing Exposé, and this was the best tutorial I have watched. Jordan explained how to capture specific instruments in complete detail. I can tell you that without Jordan and his courses I wouldn’t be where I am today. I have many clients that I am working with not only in Metal/Hardcore, but in EDM, EDC, POP, HipHop Hard Rock and recently gospel/Jazz Band. I owe it all to Jordan and Hardcore Music Studio."

John H.

"Stellar Work"

"I want to thank Jordan for the stellar work you provide us in the Mix Vault, Hardcore Mixing, Tracking, Gold Standard, etc. Without these things dude I (and I know I speak for many others) would still be at square one. Respect bro. Happy Mixing!"

Franco T.

"Your course changed my life!"

"First of all, your course changed my life!! I work everyday recording bands at my studio here in Brazil, and after your tips I can reach the final sound really fast. Thanks a lot!"

Let’s have some fun and imagine what might be possible…

Say that within the next 6 months you get to the point where you’re charging $300 per song to record and mix… 

And let’s say you could record and mix 2 songs per week… 

Which isn’t really hustling that hard.

At that rate, you’d be making an extra $2,400 a month.  

That’s a pretty significant upgrade…

Especially when it’s money rolling in while you’re doing what you love

It would make your rent or car payments a lot easier… and hey, you can even use that income to upgrade your studio with the gear you’ve had your eye on but haven’t been able to afford yet.

And that’s only if you charge $300 per song…

But honestly…

The Secrets Inside This Program Allowed Me To Charge $1,000 Per Song…

Or $750 per song for mixing alone. 

So not only will you easily earn back the money you invested in the Professional Production System today… 

But because bands and artists are blown away by their experience working with you…

They’ll keep coming back… and tell all the bands they know to come to you for their records… 

Until you have a booked calendar and can even make producing music your full-time career

Just like Vincent P. who says,

I’ve gone full-time in my studio. Yesterday was the last day at my ‘day job!’ This year has been great for my studio. I’ve also hit my first 5-figures and have projects lined up for the rest of the year.”

Or Grady who says,

“The Professional Production System has paid for itself 10x over. I’m now doing what I love making music for a living.”

Or Mathias who went from charging $150 to $650 per song to mix…

And RJ who went from $50 per song to now charging $600 per song and doing it in LESS time.

Imagine that…

12X’ing how much money you make… while spending less time in the studio.

You can be next when you take action today.

I’ve done everything I can to make the Professional Production System and the Platinum Package as affordable as possible…

Which is why hundreds of formerly amateur music producers have taken advantage of it and are now making their dreams come true in the studio.

So don’t let a “broke artist mindset” keep you from taking advantage of this life-changing opportunity, too. 

And hey, to make your decision today as easy as possible…

I’ll also back up your purchase with my 30-Day 100% More-Than-Money-Back Guarantee.

30-Day 100% More-Than-Money-Back Guarantee

When you buy the Professional Production System today…

I want you to have complete peace of mind

So if you make your purchase and realize it’s not for you…

Or you don’t see the kind of results you want in the studio…

Then you’ll get a full refund on your investment…

No questions asked.

But there’s only ONE condition

You must watch and complete at least 3 hours of training before deciding it’s “not for you.” 


Well, I made this condition because some people are just interested in buying to see what’s inside… downloading some free templates… and then cancel.

So if that’s you, don’t bother

But like I said…

If you purchase the Professional Production System today… give it your all… and it doesn’t take your tracking, editing and mixing to another level…

Then please send me an email, we’ll cancel your account, and you’ll get a full refund on your investment.

And I’ll even let you keep a Mix Vault session of your choice as my gift to you which is a $147 value.

I doubt you’ll want a refund though…

Because if you’re like any of the successful members who are crushing it since using this system… you’re going to wonder how you ever got along without it.
Sound good?

Awesome. Just select your Professional Production System Package below and click the “Join Now” button to get started.

You Have 3 Options Of Where To Go From Here…

Add Icon

Option #1: Figure It Out Yourself.

If you go this route, it’ll be a lot of the same things you’re doing right now…
Putting in hundreds more hours of trial and error sifting through all the misinformation out there… 
Hoping you come across that one “aha” trick that changes everything.
You’ll continue feeling frustrated by your mixes when you do a “car test” and your mix sounds weak and harsh… 
And embarrassed when a band that hired you compares your mix to a commercial mix… 
And their song sticks out like a sore thumb because of how amateur it sounds.

You’ll continue wasting thousands of dollars trying to build a bigger studio with better equipment… even though that’s not the issue… 

And still feel insecure and second guess yourself when you have a band in to record… 

Sometimes spending days just to mix one song…

Yet even after all that work…

You can’t get the “hi-fi in your face” sound the band desires.

You’ll keep trying to fix everything in the mix…

Searching YouTube tutorials for help when the band is gone for the day…

Trying to find anything to help…

After All This Frustration You STILL Have To Go In To Work Your “Day Job”...

Because with the kind of amateur quality you’re producing for your clients…

They don’t see a need to come back… 

Which leaves you with only a few recording jobs per year.

And while you’re at your soul-sucking day job…

You’re trying to “fix the mix” in your head…

Racking your brain to figure out what’s gone wrong with it… 

Staring at the clock as it slowly trudges minute by minute of your 8 hour shift…

While you’re dying on the inside to get back to work on your studio project. 

Plus, with your unsolved studio problems in the back of your mind…

There will likely be a strain on relationships with your significant other, or family members or friends…

Because even when you’re spending time with them, you aren’t totally “there”. And instead you’re still trying to solve the mixing problem in your head.

Your parents will keep saying you should get a real job… 

And your significant other might tell you it’s time to give up on this dream because you can’t support them with what you’re doing now. 

And so you become like 95% of people out there who give in and give up

All because you passed up on an opportunity to solve your recording & mix problems... 

And finally create pro-quality songs and records like hundreds of others have done already.

So, I know this is going to sound a little harsh…

And I’m not trying to come down on you…

But if you take this option…

There’s No One Else To Blame But Yourself.

The Professional Production System is your golden ticket to begin achieving all the success you’ve ever wanted as a music producer… 

It’s a tremendous value and very affordable when you consider…

It can be broken up into small 6 monthly payments of $197.

Or if you decide the PLATINUM package is for you…

You get a $5,480 value for a one-time payment of only $1,997… or you can split it into 6 payments for just $375 per installment.

And you will feel great about your decision because… 

You’ll easily earn that investment back very quickly because of how much better the quality of your work will be

And if you put in the effort…

You’ll have the possibility of earning enough to quit your “day job”...

And provide for yourself and your family by doing what you love for a living. 

I’ll get to more on that in a few seconds…

But before I do, let me tell you about a second option you have today that still doesn’t stand up against purchasing the Professional Production System.

Option #2: Try audio college

Maybe you decide to drop a lot of cash on an expensive audio degree.

I get that…

Going to college first to help start a career is what we’ve been taught to do since we were kids… 

But let’s look at the facts…

That’s going to cost anywhere from $20,000-$200,000… and take 2-4 YEARS to complete… 

And all you’re going to do is learn “theory” about how to make records…

And add TONS of student debt to your finances…

Which basically buries you right away in more bills… 
Meaning you’ll likely have to get a day job even after your 2-4 year education is done.
In other words…
If you go this route...

You’re Basically Pressing The “Reverse” Button On Your Studio Career

And here’s the hard truth of what I’ve learned from 10+ years in the music industry.

Not one single band or label has EVER asked me for credentials. 

Never asked to see my diploma. Or “proof” that I’m a professional.

Plus, I’ve had several guys tell me personally that they benefited MORE from the 6-week Professional Production System than they did in their entire 4 years in audio school.

Like Tate P. who says,

tate p.

“I turned to college training instead of mentor training first, and have since been through 3 audio engineering courses that did an alright job at teaching the basics, but barely taught how to use simple compression or EQ techniques in any context

Worst part is, I spent 1/3 of the cost of those courses on your online course and have learned more in 1 week than I've learned in over 2 years of those college courses. So it's safe to say, YOU are a real pro and teach far more in far less time!

So instead of falling into the same mistake…

And having tons of student debt…

Basically putting your career on “pause” for the next 2-4 years…

Why not gain access to real-world sessions (instead of just classroom theory)... 

Learn from real-life professionals at a fraction of the cost… 

In a fraction of the time… 

And with the realistic possibility that you’ll earn back the investment you put into this system in just months.

Which leads me to the third and final option today…

Which I believe is a complete no-brainer compared to the other two.

Option #3: Invest In The Professional Production System and Start Seeing Results Today!

This is the fastest and foolproof option… 

Because it won’t only save you thousands of hours of time you’d spend on YouTube tutorials or on college classes and homework… 

But it’ll also MAKE you more money recording bands in just a few months than you’ve ever made before…

Instead of emptying your wallet and leaving you in debt like expensive audio college does…

Or wasting money on a bunch of new studio equipment that doesn’t actually solve the problems you’re having.

When you take this option… 

You’ll be amazed when your raw tracks sound better than any work you’ve done beforeincluding final mixes. And… 

Bands Are Blown Away By How “In Your Face” The Mix Is…

And the pro-quality work you do that stands up against any commercial record.

Because you do such amazing work for them, they keep coming back to you for more… and tell their buddies to do the same… 

Until your studio calendar is completely booked months in advance. 

Plus, because you’re tracking, editing and mixing faster than ever… 

You can fit more bands into your calendar which means you’ll have no problem paying your bills and more. 

And with the newfound respect you earn in your scene…

You’ll be able to steadily raise your rates to clients who gladly pay it because of the awesome work you do. 

If you want, you can reinvest that back into your studio and upgrade your gear without having to work a boring 9-5 job to pay for it.

Best of all…

You’ll finally be confident as a producer… 

Word will get out that you’re some kind of wizard in the studio who can make anything sound great… 

And because you know exactly what you’re doing from tracking, to editing, to mixing and beyond…

You’ll Have More Fun Producing Songs And Records Than Ever Before…

Because you aren’t second-guessing yourself anymore…

And you’re completing projects faster and with greater ease

And because of that, you get to enjoy the creative side of producing music… 

Instead of spending all your mental energy trying to figure out what went wrong in the mix.

Now that everything has “clicked” you’ll be more passionate about music production than ever before.

You’ll record bands you’ve always dreamed of working with… 

Produce albums that get heard by thousands of people...

And give every band such an amazing experience… 

They’d rather work with you than anyone else.

When you take this third option today…

And purchase the Professional Production System, you’ll finally make your dream of becoming a professional producer a reality

Frequently Asked Questions

Who is this for? 

This program is for anyone who is passionate about recording and mixing music and who wants to make a living producing music - or learn how to produce commercial-quality records for their own band or album.

This is not for someone who is completely new to recording, editing and mixing. If you’ve been frustrated with how your final mixes sound and want to produce music that sounds professional, hits hard and has that competitive, polished sound, this program is for you.

Will this work for me even if I don’t record rock and heavy music? 

Yes — it absolutely will. 

Although my brand is “Hardcore Music Studio” and many of my credits are in the rock/metal world, these courses are about gaining solid foundational skills, not tips and tricks that are genre specific. As long as you’re working on any genre that has real instruments, everything in the Pro Production System will be directly applicable.

It can be rock, pop rock, country… you name it!

In fact, most of our members are NOT primarily focused on heavy music. One of the members who purchased this system wrote and said it worked amazingly well for recording jazz orchestras and other ensembles…
And another member had game-changing results working mostly in hip-hop.

So even if you don’t produce rock or heavy music…

Or you want to spread your wings and try producing all kinds of music…

This system translates across all genres.

Is this just a combination of your YouTube videos?

No. The Professional Production System contains material you’ve never seen before on my YouTube channel with a far closer in-depth look at how to track, edit, record and make professional quality albums no matter what your mixes sound like right now.

What if I can’t afford it? 

I’ve done everything I can to make the Professional Production System as affordable as possible for you… even going as far as giving you the opportunity to split the payments up for the next 6 months to make them easy to manage.

So if you think you can’t afford it, I want you to brainstorm some ways you can cut back in other areas of your life and find the money to make it happen. I know at first that may not sound very fun… But you’ll only have to cut back for a short amount of time.

Plus with everything you learn and apply from this training experience, you won’t only ratchet up your skills in the studio… but it’ll also allow you to charge more for artists to record with you because of the quality of your work.

We’ve had several people come to us who are in the same position you’re in right now… who decided to manage their expenses better so they could afford the Professional Production System. And after completing the training they went from charging between $50-$150 per song to now charging $650 per song.

So at the end of the day this system is going to pay for itself and so much more. And I truly believe this will be the biggest step you take towards making your dream of becoming a successful heavy music producer into a reality.

$197 or $375 per month (depending on what package you pick) for the next 6 months is an affordable plan. Don’t let something like giving up fast food for a few months… changing your phone plan… or things like that stand in your way.

One of my students, Eliazar, even sold gear to make ends meet. He said, 

“I sold some of my gear to start this course and I’m so glad I did… I’m amazed at how drastically better my mixes are and so are my clients! Best decision I’ve made. No regrets.”

I know that whatever adjustment you use to make this investment happen is going to be worth it and you absolutely will not regret it.

Is This the Same as Hardcore Tracking / Hardcore Editing / Hardcore Mixing?
Hardcore Tracking / Editing / Mixing have been renamed Pro Tracking / Editing / Mixing. The core content is the same, however we are continually updating these modules with new templates, downloads and additional training videos.

What if I already own one of your “Hardcore” courses (Hardcore Mixing, Hardcore Editing, Hardcore Tracking)?

You’re eligible for a significant discount when you upgrade to the complete Pro Production System! Please email and ask for your unique upgrade link. 

Depending on which courses you own already, you may be eligible to save up to $700! Just email us now to upgrade before the offer expires.
You’ll want to make sure you upgrade to the PPS as soon as possible, because this is where all the new training and coaching calls have been happening for the past year and will continue in the future.

What’s the difference between the regular package and the premium package? 
The main difference is that the regular package is primarily “Self-study,” while the Platinum package is for anyone who wants personal, hands-on guidance and feedback on their work.

The Platinum package adds 12 weeks of unlimited access to an expert Mix Coach via private chat + unlimited mix critiques for those 12 weeks, a 1-hour one-on-one coaching session, a live mix day with Jordan, bonus business training AND the full Session Vault.

What if I use different DAW/plugins than you?

This won’t be a problem. Thousands of users across different DAWs and plugins and gear have all been through these courses. We have not had a single cancellation because of the DAW or plugins not lining up.
We also have tailored mix templates for Pro Tools, Logic, Studio One and Cubase…
Plus bonus lessons inside Pro Editing that show you how to adapt my Pro Tools editing workflows to Logic, Cubase and Studio One.

Is the more-than-money-back guarantee for real?

Of course it is. You have a full 30-days to try out the Professional Production System. If for any reason it doesn’t give you the kind of results you’re hoping for in the studio (after completing the first course), let me know and you’ll get a full refund. Plus— you get to keep one of the MixVault sessions of your choice for free.

Alright, I’m ready to do this! How do I purchase the system again?

After you do that, you’ll be taken to a secure checkout page where you can complete your order.

"I went to audio school for 4 years. I did 5 videos of Jordan's so far and learned more in 2 hours than in 4 years for a lot less money."

David P.

"Jordan Valeriote basically wrecked the internet for me...others kinda suck by comparison, I don't even bother with any others now."

Ryan I.

"Jordan, out of every mixing/engineering course I've taken, I've learned the most out of yours, so thank you so much for making these happen!"

Luiza C.

Rob B.

"I started using your methods and things sounded immediately better. Word spread, and now I have triple the clients and people coming from all over, from all backgrounds (yesterday I was confidently tracking a live folk session). Your courses have given me the confidence to trust my instincts, but also know my worth. I get good results quickly, and people love it."

Rob B.

Charles Y.

"For a mix to translate out of my bedroom studio, I'd have to make about 5-6 revisions to get something short of decent. I scrapped all my processing and applied your methods and approach to one of my songs and WITHOUT EVEN A REVISION, my mix ACTUALLY TRANSLATED VERY WELL AND SOUNDED GOOD IN MY CAR."

Charles Y.

"Man I am soooo freaking excited about this!!! I will finally be able to mix my own records and have them sound pro without spending thousands of dollars for sub par results. I am so glad I found this course."

Marc P.

"My mix from 6 weeks ago sounds so weak compared to what I am now churning out!"
