MixCon is the free, educational event about mixing conceived and organized by gear blogs SonicScoop and Delicious Audio.

Keeping Mixcon 100% Virtual (at least for now)

Although MixCon has always featured a powerful in-person component in prior years, for the vast majority of those who experience it, MixCon has always been an online event! 

That’s where hundreds of thousands of producers, engineers, musicians and audio obsessives have viewed the MixCon presentations before 2020: From the comfort of their homes and mobile devices.

There are clear advantages to organizing this event—the world’s only convention that’s all about music mixing—100% online for 2022. This is especially the case for our “Mix Walkthrough” and “Product Workshop” formats. Here are a few of them:

  1. The ability to draw on a potentially larger live streaming audience.
  2. An ever more intimate video experience, directly from the producers’ studios.
  3. A more affordable event for the participating sponsors.

Since the online format doesn’t force us to stick to a strict two-day schedule, we have decided to allocate an entire day for each Sponsored Mix Walkthrough, for a whole Month (or more) of MixCon content!

This keeps with the successful strategy we have employed for past MixCon video releases and allows us more time to promote each of the presentations without oversaturating our followers with excessive content, like in so many other virtual conventions.

The Jazz/Fusion Mix: Nic Hard Mixes Snarky Puppy’s Grammy-Winning track

A MixCon 2023 Presentation Sponsored By Sonarworks

Video Premiere Date: October 23, at 2 pm ET

Watch the presentation and live Q&As (at 4 pm, ET) on YouTube for live comments.

Thanks to Sonarworks for allowing us to make this presentation free to the public.

Nic Hard‘s career in music began in the mid ’90s while DJ’ing in clubs and house parties throughout Philadelphia and later, London. On his return to the States, his resume began to take shape as he shifted gears focusing on studio recording and mixing. He quickly earned the position of head engineer at RPM Studios in New York City, a “Noah’s Ark” of gear. In 2002 Nic went freelance when given the opportunity to record and co-produce The Church’s Forget Yourself album in Sydney Australia.

In 2016 Nic won a Grammy for his work on the Best Contemporary Instrumental Album “Culcha Vulcha” by Snarky Puppy.

His catalog of work includes collaborations with world-renowned bands such as The Bravery, Aberdeen City and The Kin as well as up-and-coming acts such as The Ropes, Ghost Beach and The Perfects.


MixCon is a free educational event for musicians and aspiring producers/mixing engineers. Its goal is to advise them on the art of mixing, the science it’s based upon, and the techniques top engineers employ to shape the sounds in the directions they envision, and to make them coexist in a balanced fashion.
