I’m giving away $10,000 in prizes to Pro Production System members!

Share your Mix Transformation for a chance to win!

The entire HCMS community will vote on their favorite Mix Transformation, and the top 3 will win:

1st Place - $5,000 Studio Prize Packageincluding:

  • CLA10 Monitors (Pair)
  • EL Distressor
  • SSL UF8 Control Surface

Here's how to enter...

  • Create a 15-20 second audio clip that compares one of your mixes before purchasing a Hardcore Music Studio course, and one of your mixes after taking the course. The audio file should show approximately 10 seconds of the “before” mix, and 10 seconds of the “after” mix. It does not need to be the same song.

Here's an example:

  • Grab your phone or webcam and record a short video telling your story, following this format:
  • Describe the struggles you had with your recordings/mixes before becoming a HCMS member
  • Describe one or two of the biggest shifts or “a-ha” moments you had from the course(s)
  • Describe how your recordings/mixes have improved, and what impact it’s made in your life (more clients? increased rates? released your own music?)

Your video *MUST* be under 3 minutes. 
Any videos longer than 3 minutes will be automatically disqualified!

  • Complete the form below and submit your audio and video links to enter. Use Dropbox or Google Drive links and make sure to set permissions so we can access your clips!

Then, starting April 11, we will be inviting the entire HCMS community to vote for their favorite mix transformation!


Submission deadline is 11:59 PM (EDT) on April 9, 2024
