I did the RAMP mixing course, and I can recommend it wholeheartedly.

I'd been struggling to find mixing advice online compiled in a way that was clear, well-structured, technically literate, self-reflective, and artistically-minded all at once. This course provided me with exactly that, and I benefitted immensely. To round it all off, it was hugely enjoyable. If you think it might be for you, it probably is!

I did the Mixing course with Chris Jarman (aka KSP) and it literally blew my mind and opened me to new perspectives.

This is not the first mixing course I' ve done, but still I can truly say it was the best I did and the best thing I could do now to take my production to the next level. Here I discovered not only new techniques, but also a lot of tricks and tools that Chris uses in his incredibly sounding productions as Kamikaze Space Programme. If u wanna have an amazing study and life experience check out RAMP Berlin and their next courses!!

I did the in depth mixing course with Chris and it's the best course I've ever done - the perfect mix of technical, process and philosophy, delivered with passion by a skilled mix engineer and a great teacher.
