What People are Saying

What Some Of My Top Customers Had To Say

After your tutorials I started getting paid clients. I took 2 years of audio school at a community college and then 4 years at OSU doing recording engineering. I learned more from 1 of your tutorials than all 6 years combined! That's a testament to both how good your info is and how bad my recording "teachers" were.

David, your new course is absolutely brilliant! Very well explained and thought out. I’ve seen tons of tutorials and to me your teachings are the best that I’ve seen. Absolute winner!

Joey Fernandez

I can tell you that I've spent time in Full Sail, working along side of other engineers, and countless hours in multi-million dollar rooms from Jersey to Florida recording. But my biggest wins were when I watched you mix. Something about your workflow just made it all click together.

Tom C.
Tom C. Producer/Engineer

I've bought 3 or 4 of DG tutorials and they are all extremely well done and very informative. I highly recommend anything he puts out. Don't buy another plugin that won't help you, and spend your money on what matters most in mixing - your knowledge.

Sean D.
Sean D. Producer/Engineer

David is the bomb! This is great material with great mentoring from an absolute pro. I’ve been a fan for a long time from all of the YouTube videos and learned a lot from him. I highly recommend joining his mix academy if possible. I’m still learning and I have a feeling that we are just on the tip of the ice berg with this life long learning journey. Much thanks to you David.
