Frequently Asked Questions

Question: Is the only way to watch the monthly content via streaming? Can I download the videos?

Answer: Yes, you can download the videos to keep forever in addition to being able to stream them on your computer or mobile device.


Question: Does the monthly content stay up forever?

Answer: No. It is the member’s responsibility to download the monthly content in a timely fashion if they wish to keep it. The monthly content stays up for 2 months. For example, if you sign up in April, April’s content will be available for April and May. May will be available for May and June… so on and so forth.


Question: How many times can I download the content?

Answer: You can download the content as many times as you like while it is up and available. We recommend downloading the content and keeping it in a safe, designated place (like a desktop folder or external hard drive) for further watching, study, and reference.


Question: Do I have to be a Studio One or Pro Tools user to join?

Answer: Absolutely NOT! Pete and Dave teach universal mixing concepts that are applicable to ANY DAW on the market. Just because you may see them using Studio One or Pro Tools, that in no way is a pre-requisite for learning and getting the most as a member of Learning To Mix.  


Question: Do Pete and Dave use outboard gear or plugins?

Answer: Pete and Dave both mix 100% in the box with plugins and do not use any outboard gear like hardware compressors, EQ’s, effects, and so on.


Question: Do I need to have 3rd party plugins to join LTM?

Answer: NEVER! Pete and Dave do use a variety of plugins (including ones from 3rd party manufacturers), but what’s most important is the concepts and philosophies as to WHY they’re using them. So for example if they are using a compressor, what’s important and universally applicable is WHY they are choosing to compress something in the audio… Not what company makes the compressor or how much it costs. Pete has a saying that applies directly to this: “It’s always the wizard, never the wand.” As long as you have a stock eq, compressor, reverb, and delay, you have everything you need to learn and benefit from being a member of Learning To Mix. As part of your membership, Pete and Dave give you a list of their favorite free plugins available as well as links where you can go download them!


Question: Do I have a say as to what songs we mix each month?

Answer: YES you do! The primary focus of Learning To Mix is YOU, the student/member. Pete and Dave have built Learning To Mix to be a mixing community FOR THE PEOPLE, BY THE PEOPLE. They often refer to it as “blue collar mixing” because everything they do is with YOU in mind. There’s no arrogant, posh, stuck up gate keepers here. What makes Learning To Mix so different and special from other mixing membership sites is that as a member you get to submit your own sessions for Pete and Dave (and the rest of the LTM community) to mix for the month. Once a few have been selected, you will be able to listen to the songs and vote on which one you’d like to mix.


Question: How do I submit my music for consideration to be mixed by Dave & Pete & the LTM community?

Answer: Simply email us ([email protected]) an MP3 of your mix of the song you’d like to be considered. It can be rough and does not need to be mixed at all really. We’re not picking songs based on your mix, but rather the song itself and the quality of the recording. You can submit a song at anytime and we will let you know if your song has been chosen to be featured for a month’s mix!


Question: How do I enter my mix for the monthly mixing contest to win free plugins from Slate Digital, Plugin Alliance & PreSonus?

Answer: That’s easy! Just send us an MP3 or WAV file of your best mix (a WAV would be better due to the hi-res quality of audio) to [email protected] by no later than the 30th of each month. The winners will be announced and contacted by the 15th of the following month.


Question: If I miss the monthly LIVE STREAM Coaching Call can I watch it at a later time?

Answer: Yes! Just go to the Live Stream page and you will find the videos of the broadcasts.


Question: I have a question about the website and/or my membership. Who can I contact?

Answer: Simply send us an email to [email protected] and we will respond to you within 48 hours doing our utmost to take good care of you :-)


Question: How do I cancel my membership?

Answer: We would really hate to see you leave LTM, but we understand that things happen for a variety of reasons. Send us an email to [email protected] and we will take care of your wishes as soon as possible.
