Learn why we created 1st Year Producer

What makes 1st Year Producer so special?

For most beginning audio engineers browsing the internet for help can be a difficult task. From the thousands of Youtube videos and hundreds of audio production websites, we focus on new and aspiring audio engineers only. We focus on the fundamental building blocks here at 1st Year Producer. By taking the time to break audio production down into its simplest form through our Challenges section, you will begin to understand the “why” and “how” of audio production. Your mix sessions in your DAW will now begin to have structure and purpose leading you to better mixes. 1st Year Producer is the perfect place to start!

We do not explain complicated mixing techniques that make no sense to the novice mix engineer. Instead we offer hundreds of downloads followed by specifically designed Challenges designed to help the beginning mix engineer establish that fundamental knowledge
