Whether you're a professional or a hobbyist you wanna learn to be as good as you can.

If you're a hobby composer, the MIX is the end product that provides the JOY of what you're writing. It gives you the ability to hear the music the way you intended. It would be as good as it can possibly be. The better it sounds, the better the joy.

And if you're a professional, you already know how meaningful and significant a good mix is to get and keep a job. Sending a demo is like an advertisement. If it doesn't sound good, you're not gonna get the job. And if you do get the job, you're not gonna keep it for long if your music doesn't sound good.

This is NOT a beginner's course. This course does NOT teach how to set up a compressor! ;)

This course instructs the thought process behind the mixing process.

You’ll compose differently after this course because you’ll compose with the mix in mind. You’ll be able to hear the mix in your mind before you start to write and you’ll know how to get to the sound that you hear in your head. Dennis will show you how to think about the sound and how to shape it to get the result you want.

Frequently Asked Questions

You’ll have access to the course materials for life.

YES. You can go at your own pace. Don’t need to follow the course’s schedule.  The course materials do not expire and you’ll have access to them for life. Even for the future course updates and improvements!

You can do it a bit faster, or take as much time as you want/need.

Yes. The contents of this course are only in English at the moment

You do not need a Mac for this course. Marc uses a PC. Half of our Cinematic Composing students are Mac, the other half are PC.

Any computer, desktop or laptop, with an i5 or similar (i7 desired), 4-8Gb of RAM (16 desired), and 150Gb of free HDD storage for samples (SSD desired) will be enough to get you started. You can always upgrade later.


Dennis uses Pro Tools. But, all the concepts that you'll learn apply across the board, no matter what sequencer you use. In fact, more than a 1/2 of our students are Logic users.

The same concept about plugins. You can learn and apply all the concepts taught in the course using any basic plugins. Once you're in the course, you'll have a better idea of what is the next plugin that you wanna buy. Plus, you'll be around a great community of composers who already own those plugins and can give you valuable feedback or advice what library to invest in next.
