the class

MixDirection is a masterclass seminar where you'll see two songs mixed in one day. Dax Liniere walks you through the mixing process, using compression, equalisation, reverb and saturation to create mixes that best serve the songs.

MixDirection will help you understand how to get punch, depth, clarity and character from your mixes.

Some other seminars deconstruct an existing mix. Building it from the ground up means you will have the opportunity to see not only the final choices, but the decisions that lead to them.

MixDirection is your shortcut to the perfect mix.
"A deep understanding of the mixing process teaches you how to solve problems. That's long-lasting knowledge you can apply in any production scenario." - Dax Liniere

the studios

Puzzle Factory is London's newest premium studio complex, located only 5 miles from central London.
The Tottenham complex was designed by US acoustician Jeff Hedback and features 5 sun-lit studios, live rooms big enough for an entire band and a great selection of the best gear money can buy.
With comfortable & inspiring spaces, Puzzle Factory is the perfect place to create.

reviews

“The most valuable thing I learned was the way Dax taught me to think. It was so important to me because in the real world, when I am working in the studio by myself or with an artist, I can apply the thinking you taught me to the situations that I'm be presented with, and use this to help others get a better result.”

“Dax taught me to look past my own musical preferences and to truly focus on what will bring out the best in a mix. His teaching absolutely helped me take my mixing knowledge and abilities to that next level.”
