In the Producer II the focus is to improve your music. Techniques like gain staging, parallel processing, sound layering, advanced composition, advanced mastering, you’ll give you the knowledge that top artists use and with them achieve such good results in their productions.

Without this course you are only halfway there, this is the launching pad for almost secret techniques that will be like the icing on the cake of your productions. Not just anyone who can join, you have to go through a brief interview to get access to this course.

We added many hours of practicing in a professional studio with flexible online scheduling that you can use to practice and record alone or with friends.

You will also have access to twenty hours of practice in a professional studio with flexible online scheduling. Access to ten hours of classes in LAB format where you are face to face with your tutor and where you will be able to clarify all your questions. Two hundred video-summaries of all the subjects are also part of this course. And also access to two video-tubes: your projects revised and improved by a ProDJ tutor. See an example HERE. Finally, altought our classes are on-site, you can also attend online classes from other schedules with other tutors, making your training experience much richer.

The course includes theoretical and practical methods that will help you to clarify all the important aspects, and there is also the possibility of career development guidance after completing the course.
