This leaves them with tracks that are ok, but still need some work before they're ready for prime-time streaming or commercial licensing.

Case Study #1
"We're in This Together" - Dale P.
Gary identifies the priority element and focuses on adjusting the arrangement on this track for a Southwest Airlines submission.
Case Study #2
"Twice Alright" - Steve H.
Gary guides the writer so that there are no emotional weak links for the listener, from the very first note to the last moment of silence.
“I started working with Gary one year ago. By following his advice, I now have a successful Record Label - AND, it’s not just another label. I am constantly opening doors because of the quality of the recordings I produce that people are referring to as Masterpieces. Gary has somehow developed workflows for everything. How I mix now is totally different (and I was an “experienced” mixing engineer before), this new way of mixing is amazingly effective and efficient. It really is revolutionary. I use it all the time now.” - Ples
Why is this Critiquing System such a BIG DEAL?
Just learning how to prepare your tracks for uploading in this revolutionary system will GUARANTEE that your mixing will improve from the first minute you start mixing with Gary Gray’s revolutionary Mute Automation Checkerboard A/B Workflow (All DAWs).
This workflow, featured in Gary’s Lucrative Home Studio online training program has been helping hundreds of indie musicians create consistent broadcast quality, radio ready recordings with EVERY SINGLE MIX.
Top Pro mixers using this system swear by its EFFICIENCY and CONSISTENT QUALITY results.
Gary is known in the industry for making bold and sometimes controversial statements about what he sees as the truth about music production.
In Gary’s own words:
“There are two things I’ve been blessed with in life:
- An insatiable passion for sound, music and recording which started at the age of 8 (when I built my first home studio), allowing me to develop a balanced artistic/scientific approach to tens of thousands of hours of intense research regarding live and studio recorded sound and music.
- A fascination for people which led me to develop my personal motto, “I’m Either Networking Or Notworking!” which in turn steered me down a path where I’ve been personally mentored by legends such as Quincy Jones, Phil Collins, Phil Ramone, Jermaine Jackson and others -- and has driven me to share what I learned and what I developed with others.
These two gifts resulted in me discovering undeniable myths and brainwashing that occur inevitably in the field of music production. Why inevitable? Because of two factors:
Music and Sound, both being invisible subjective art forms and sciences, are prone to delivering to the musician and producer/engineer the most intense damage from un-researched or overtly destructive outside “authoritative” opinions. Artists, producers and engineers: beware! Don’t say I didn’t warn you.
After thousands of hours of research into the field of psycho-acoustics, I discovered a full series of ILLUSIONS which fool every recording, mixing and mastering engineer in the studio. Discovering and mapping these illusions in detail, I was able to develop workflows which ERADICATE these illusions.
So, this revolutionary Detailed Case Study Song Critiquing System is not adding to the scores of myths and brainwashing approaches out there, sifting good money from good people for little or no (or negative) gain to the indie or pro musician.
Some people ask why I use extreme terms like myths and brainwashing. From my research, those are the most accurate terms to describe what people run up against when attempting to learn the truth about music production. It’s not that everyone out there is spreading myths, and brainwashing others on purpose. It stems from one of two sources (with the vast majority of people falling into Category 1, and only a handful of people falling into Category 2):
Unknowingly spreading unworkable information due to a lack of time and/or discipline to do personal research. In other words, this is “the blind leading the blind,” or in our industry, I call it “the deaf leading the deaf.” This category can be summed up thusly:
Prior to conquering a subject of study, a student simply does not know what they don’t know.
A very small percentage of people disseminating information about music production spread lies knowingly and on purpose (such as the rare dishonest music store salesperson, saying anything to get a sale).
What I have done is organized, compiled and streamlined all the myths and the brainwashing on one hand, and all the truths on the other, sharing both with the student, clearly labeling each correctly per my research, so the student can be thoroughly enlightened and learn why the truth is the truth -- quickly without wasting time.
All of the above research has been injected and woven into the Detailed Case Study Song Critiquing System.
You will learn why the MUSIC EDITOR, and not the Music Supervisor is the person you are working for and the person who will decide your fate - based on the QUALITY of your tracks.
You will learn how the current music licensing space is saturated with less than industry standard tracks. In the words of five of the top leading music supervisors and publishers I interviewed personally, “80 to 90 percent of tracks I listen to are unusable due to low quality production.” That is the honest truth.
I want you to be in the top 10 to 20 percent!
I’m talking about LUCRATIVE licensing deals. I disagree with slaving away in your studio with less than a minimum wage return on your hard work.”
