You got questions? We have answers.

What if my mix is too bad to be fixed?
If anything, the earlier you are in your journey, and the further your mixes are from a pro standard... the bigger the improvement you're going to see.

Equally, if your mix is 90% of the way there, and you've been searching for that last 10% - objective analysis will help you figure out exactly what's missing.
My room isn't acoustically treated, does that matter?
Having a good room will certainly help you identify what's wrong with your mix. That's why room tuning is a major part of our flagship program, The Reverse Engineer™. 

But just like training your ears, there are stages to this process. You don't need a perfect room to significantly improve your mixes. You should continue to improve the quality of your work while gaining new knowledge IN TANDEM with improving on your room over the long-term. Otherwise, you'll get stuck on your room and won't make any progress until you have the "perfect" setup... which we both know doesn't really exist.
Can't I just figure this out on my own?
How has that worked for you so far? Sure, you could learn eventually this stuff through repetition and practice... but it's going to take you decades to get to the same point as everyone else. Instead of reinventing the wheel, it's much quicker to learn from somebody else's experience and mistakes.
I don't have time to do ear training before the challenge - will I still benefit?
We'll show you techniques that don't rely on your having great hearing. 

Yes, ear training is incredibly important. But you can still drastically improve your mixes while you're working on your hearing over the long-term.
Is this for a specific genre or type of music?
No, what you're going to learn is totally agnostic to the genre of music. 

Remember, it's mastering the SCIENTIFIC aspect of music production that's important. Once you do that, you have the building blocks for any genre or type of music.
What DAW are you going to use?
It doesn't matter - the techniques you use are the exact same in all DAWs. You'll be able to follow along regardless of which DAW you use.
Am I going to need a bunch of expensive software/plugins to see results?
No. Better gear will certainly help BUT the first step is developing your knowledge and skills. 

Only after that should you think about upgrading your gear. That way, you're using it to it's full potential, instead of having a bunch of expensive gear you don't actually know how to use.
