I've recently achieved a pretty cool milestone (for myself at least!) that I'm really proud of and wanted to say that your Hardcore Mixing course is the course that got me started in this direction and I wanted to let you know!
I recently placed in the top 10 in a mixing competition amongst some mixing heavyweights including Kenny Gioia (Bayside, Mandy Moore, Marcy Playground) and Matthew Weiss whose mixing talents I really respect. To be among those guys who I really respect and have looked up to is extremely awesome!
I was always used to being the one who didn't even get top 200 in these competitions. I'm super stoked and just wanted to share with you since it's your course that first showed me the "other side" and wouldn't be at the level I'm at without the HC Mixing course.
I should also say I mixed this song in around 8 hours (6 initially to mix and about 2 to tweak, fine tune, and faux-master). I used to take WEEKS just for a single song! And they still didn't sound pro! Needless to say I feel very confident in my mixing abilities now, and know this is only the beginning.
