If you want a peek behind the production curtain, and advice on how to conduct yourself as a professional within the production scene, or seeking motivation in general, this is the podcast for you.

Great podcast

Love the content, always great guests and I get something out of it everytime!

The greatest

I can’t describe in enough words how great this podcast helps the communities of musicians and future recording engineers. Forever grateful Eyal


Appreciate this dude and the pod. V insightful.


Perfect balance of tips, inspiration, and entertainment.

Exceptional quality - broad value

I checked out this podcast expecting some nerdy deep dives into audio production, and there is plenty of that. But what I didn’t expect and am currently floored by is the depth of these conversations - Eyal Levi is a brilliant interviewer with a deep knowledge of the industry as well as the completely artistic side of the business, and he brings out the absolute best from the star-studded lineup of guests. Listen now - there is no bad episode.

This podcast gives me hope!

Thank you so much Eyal for all your hard work!

Great Podcast

Amazing insight into the music industry, and what it takes to be a producer in the modern music scene.

Heady good

I produce record etc. this is got to be one of the most surprisingly recording work Psyche appreciable conversations I’ve heard in a while with John Congleton as well as with Eyal. Well done.

Simply The Best

I have learned more from this podcast than I have from some classes, what else can I say, the knowledge is second to none, I recomend it to everybody I can.

Invaluable Insight

Rarely have I encountered a podcast that is so informative but also entertaining. The URM podcast does a fantastic job of going beyond the monotony of questions that are asked of every producer in any given video or magazine interview. Anyone can listen to a producer or mix engineer's discography, but to be able to get a deeper view into their psyche is invaluable for those of us who are looking to learn the craft of producing and engineering. Any given episode of the URM podcast can provide insight into how some of the greatest minds in today's music business operate, whether that comes in the form of more technical information or via their mindset. A definite must for anyone looking to up their game in the audio world.

Amazing Resource to Learn About Your Favorite Audio Engineers

I’ve been a URM member for a year now and have also been listening to the podcast for just as long. While URM NTM sessions give you all the insight as to how these people create their great mixes the podcast fills in the gap of showing you more how they are in every day life. They share their backgrounds, experiences, and provide professional advice. It really makes you feel more connected to who your favorite mixers are and can often be inspiring to hear how they succeeded.

Professional level info for freeeeee

I don’t know where else you’re going to get to hear so many pros talk about how it’s done and how to succeed, let alone for free. This podcast is how I integrate audio into my life when I’m doing anything else. It’s a great way to stay fired up by constantly learning new things to try out and how to be successful by learning from others who did it first.

Essential Industry Knowledge!

The people on this podcast are the real deal, and hearing them in such a casual setting talking freely about their experiences is CRITICAL for understanding the mentality you need to succeed in this industry. Know the people you could potentially work with and how they think and interact, and you will hit the ground running if you decide to make a career in music. Otherwise, there’s lot of great insight for fans of music and the process of making it!

Must Listen for Producers

This podcast gives you a wealth of knowledge from top producers. I have learned something new from every episode I’ve listened to. If you are into audio this is the podcast for you. I was never really into podcasts then I listened to this and now I listen to a episode every time I have to drive somewhere.

The Best, No Questions!

Nothing could beat the amount of insightful, actionable advice packed into this podcast by real world professionals. The information is honest, proven to be successful, and the online FB community is chock-full of 100% positive engagement and support. If you aren’t subscribed to one of the services or a listener of the podcast at minimum you’re missing out!! The amount of people who’ve gotten massive amounts of inspiration and knowledge out of it are truly staggering!

The best, most informative podcast for producing and mixing metal.

This podcast is like no other. Every episode is just a giant well of useful information for producers and mixers of any and all forms of rock and metal music. Eyal is such a cool guy, and does an amazing job at being down to earth and relatable and makes every guest seem very calm and able to talk about whatever they want in a relaxed, conversational way. I feel like I could listen to each episode multiple times and find new things to learn with each listen. 100% recommend! While you’re at it, check out URM/Nail the mix, too.

Metal Producers: This is it!

The culture and life of the hard rock/metal musician comes alive during Eyal’s podcast. Hearing from some of my favorite musicians and the producers behind them has helped me become even more immersed in my hobby. URM has been popping up for me in internet searches for the last couple years and I finally decided to take the plunge when the Will Putney: How It’s Done course came out. It came with 3 months of URM Enhanced and now I’m hooked. My understanding of musical production from tracking to proper communication has soared thanks to URM. This podcast is a great supplement to URM and I hope it sticks around for a long time!

URM Podcast

The technical side of URM is incredible and there’s as much info as you are willing to absorb. The podcast is where it shines for me though. You get a better understanding for a specific producer/engineer’s mindset and priorities rather than what knobs to turn and what gear to buy. This to me is kinda like Aang and the avatar state where he can channel the wisdom of those more wise, and use that information to forge his own path. It’s an inside look into the minds of those successfully doing what you want to be doing. That’s hard to put a price tag on if you can internalize/apply what you learn from listening in.

You need to listen if you’re interested in Audio

This isn’t just your normal audio podcast no it’s soooooo much better. You get to see behind the glass on the mentality of these people who make probably some of your favorite records and that’s well with the price of FREEEE!!!! I’d give it 10 out of 5 stars if I could

it's been great to be on the podcast...

Thank you Eyal, it was lovely to be on the podcast... hope to meet in person some day... Marc Urselli

Best Education based Music Podcast

Fantastic interviews and very informative insight

More than just Audio Engineering

URM is the best podcast, community, and knowledge source out there for aspiring musicians and audio production people to truly learn from the best in the business. The podcast often takes a philosophical turn at times, consistently covering so much more material than “what settings do you use on [Insert piece of equipment]? These guys are the best, period.

The Best, No Questions!

Nothing could beat the amount of insightful, actionable advice packed into this podcast by real world professionals. The information is honest and proven to be successful. One of the best communities in the online music scene as well. If you aren’t subscribed to one of the services or a listener of the podcast at minimum you’re missing out!!

You're missing out if you're an audio engineer and not listening to the wealth of information this podcast provides!

Thank You!!!!

I have been listening to this podcast for the last three and half years, and a member of URM for the last two and half years. It has changed my life and given me the chance to do something I have always wanted to do. I literally thought my chances had passed until I found this podcast. Now I have multiple sessions under my belt and have been able to work with some of the local artists I have always looked up too. It’s a great feeling of validation when they seek you out for your help and opinion. I can never thanks Eyal and the team at URM enough.

Wish I would’ve discovered 2 years ago!

WOW!!! This is the show I’ve been looking for for years. Eyal is a prime example of how being a good, real person who is passionate about what they’re doing leads to success. The show is packed with knowledge and insight from guests and it’s exactly what I’ve been looking for. Thanks, Eyal for keeping it real and having a great podcast. It’s been a huge motivation and door breaker for me. Cheers

Best Audio Podcast

Not only are they the best audio production podcast they also just inspire you to be a better healthier human being. Can't say enough good things about this podcast.

Great info from great people in the biz

Amazing Stuff!

The guys at URM are fantastic, and they’re constantly dishing out new ways to improve your mixes regardless of your skill level. Get on this!

Finally found the right audio community for me!

Before listening to this podcast was I was completely unaware where all my audio peers had went for their continued audio recording geekery from the andy sneap forum days. My chops where slipping and the only resources I found were cringy youtube channels that turned me completely off from wanting to get any better. Finally after listening to the URM podcast I had found what I have been looking for in an audio community again and it has literally jumpstarted my career into audio after years of self-doubt. I have never been happier to have URM in my life.

Informative and Insightful

The URM Podcast has rapidly become my favorite podcast to listen to. The range of topics covered spans everywhere from informative business applications to general personal quirks from some the idols I look up to in mixing and other areas of music business. Every single episode has something to offer even if I've never heard of the guest. Its enjoyable to pick through the minds of so many people that have vastly different styles and approaches to what they do best.

Best Audio Podcast

Of all the different audio oriented podcasts I’ve listened to this is easily the best one. The guests are all very next level and the topics which they discuss are relevant and delivered eloquently.

Kings of Audio

Life changing for someone who wants to make music their career and life. Inspirational, educational and entertaining all at the same time! Thanks URM for such a great podcast with unbelievable guests.

amazing podcast

Fantastic podcast with tons of invaluable information about how to make it as an audio engineer.

The URM team works endlessly to give the community what they want.

The URM podcast changed my conceptions of podcasts particularly those covering audio engineering, production, and the music business. Eyal and the gang are fantastic hosts to their highly regarded and diverse guests. I listen to the URM podcast religiously often going back and relistening to past episodes as there is just so much great information packed into each one. Can’t recommend it enough! Just start at the beginning and listen to them all!

The Best Interview the Best

Great teachers interviewing some of the best in the music business. The advice from Eyal, Joel, and Joey is useful and insightful. Combine that with their fantastic and detailed interviews with some of the biggest names in the industry (not just metal either) and you have an amazing podcast.

This is career and life advice straight from people who have already achieved many of the things that most producers strive to attain.

The GOATs of audio engineering podcasts

These guys are at the top of their game in the audio engineering podcasting world. They always manage to get interesting guests, each episode has GREAT information for aspiring engineers regardless if they’re amateur or pro, and episodes never get dry when listening.

This is a fantastic PODCAST that’s goes into a deep dive nitty gritty of the recording, producing, and business of music. Great guests with a wealth of information to share.

Excellent podcast!

Everything these guys touch is gold. I started listening to this podcast with no formal audio training, then joined URM Academy and learned so much from their videos and tutorials. Last week I recorded my first client and nailed the first mix I sent! If you have any interest in audio check this’ll be hooked on no time.

Still listening after 2 years!

This podcast is one of the best resources for anyone new or experienced in the music business. It provides a lot of insight into the industry, music production, mixing, marketing and business strategy. It's always on my regular podcast rotation

URM is the only place to find the bleeding edge of rock and metal producers giving you all their years of experience. The absolute best resource available for up-and-coming producers, musicians and long-time producers and engineers alike. 10/10 would bang.

Kicking myself for not getting on board sooner

One of the best podacasts around if you are a audio pro or novice. Relevant content that often goes beyond the superficial things like gear and setting- this podcast gets deep into the mindset and the intangibles that are needed for anyone in the ever evolving music or creative space.

The interviews are on point!

After listening to just the last 3 interviews that Eyal Levi has done, I find myself continuously saying, “yes, that makes sense” or “that’s exactly how I see that”. I don’t agree with everything either the guest or Eyal say, but that’s want makes it an intriguing podcast with no bullish!+. Thank you for making an honest podcast.

Industry Leaders give you the keys to the kingdom.

URM gives you everything you need to develop your skills as a producer. It’s all on the table.

Winning Podcast!!

These guys are killing it - building a great community of people who are all helping each other out to improve recording, mixing and mastering skills. Well done gents.

Nail the interview...

I went to college. It was a waste of time. I know a lot of people who went to school for audio production. They say it was a waste of time. The URM network is not a waste of time. You get exactly what college should provide- an affordable way to learn job related skills that translate directly to income- and these guys nail it.

Less cursing, please.

Great podcast, very informative. I just wished they would curse less (or no cursing at all), as I'd like to be able to listen to it in my car, when there are other people around me.

URM Rules

An amazing amount of knowledge is to be had from listening to these guys. Some of the best in the audio engineering game right now and they're great teachers as well. Thanks for all the hard work URM.

Awesome podcast

These guys have awesome guests all the time and it's rad to hear them talk not just recording but the music industry in general. Easily my top 3 fav podcasts.

Nothing has helped more than this

This is by far the most helpful resource I've found to get better at recording, mixing, and production. Since listening I've gone from recording myself in my bedroom to building my own studio and getting happy paying clients. Between this podcast and subscribing to nail the mix, I'm well on my way to having the skills needed to make a career recording bands and producing music. Check this one out!

Outstanding Resource

These guys put in loads of work to bring us quality information each episode! There is something for everybody here, and I listen to entire episodes in one sittings just because they're so engaging. There is never a shortage of lessons learned and life stories from the professionals in the industry, and these guys know how to carry a conversation. I highly recommend listening daily if you are looking to take yourself to the next level of audio engineering.

Better than audio schools

This podcast is super informative & teaches listeners how to learn about audio, which is a big deal in this world of terrible YouTube tutorials. Knowing how to critically listen & learn about audio production & the audio industry is the best way to succeed in this business.

Fire Emoji

The Greatest Podcast In The History Of Pods and Casts!!!

If you're looking for and incredible wealth of knowlege on recording, mixing, mastering and life in general, it's impossible to go wrong with Eyal, Joey, and Joel.

There's no better recording podcast out there!

Even if you are a seasoned veteran in the audio industry you can benefit from this endeavor. The Nail the Mix courses are full of tips and tricks that would take 7years to figure out on your own. The greatest value to me is the networking and the exposure to new / different approaches to getting the job done quickly with a stellar sound.

Invaluable information for mixing and beyond!

To say the podcasts and information contained is an understatement. I've learned more in the last half year with Unstoppable Recording Machine than I have in the last 10 years. This is no compromise, no b.s. and no apologies. Eyal, Joel and Joey provides the best information possible, and strives to help anyone who is willing to learn to become the very best they can be. Highly recommended and incredibly thankful something like this is available to me.

Great Way To Learn

I've done the whole school route and interned at multiple studios, I've been out of the field for almost 2 years now and have recently pushed myself to get back into engineering and I'm happy I did. FInding URM and NTM was the best discovery I've made, I've been a part for over a week now and the amount of info I've learned is amazing. Now it's time to train my ears again.

Free candy without the creepy van!

So much knowledge gained by just listening. Great talks with the people in the industry. Did you hear a song ever and like it? Want insight on how the big name producers do it? It's all here. Musicians, producers, mangers, proper vocal usuage, dude it is all here. Ha, you thought Netflix was addictive. 100+ episodes.

Member for over a year

I really dig the podcasts and listening to an industry professionals knowledge on audio. I like their attitudes and how they go about being productive. There is tons of audio related knowledge as well as how to get there or how to think (mindset). Its a no BS approach that I like.

Required listening

It’s impossible to sum up just how valuable this podcast is. Eyal, Joel, Joey and all of the guests are a wealth of knowledge for any budding engineer and producer. Each episode warrants multiple listens due to the sheer amount of information spanning many subjects revolving around music writing, engineering and production. Required listening, in my very humble opinion!

Favorite audio podcast on itunes!

These dudes are awesome! They tell it how it is every time. I been listening since around last April 2016 and I have learned so much and gained so much insight! Amazing interviews as well. Highly recommended!

THE PLACE to learn about modern recording, mixing, and producing music

As a recent Berklee MP&E graduate, I found that continuing my education was tough, even with currently being an intern at a studio in Boston. Thankfully, finding this podcast has been very helpful in continuing my education while being great, funny dudes too. They have great guests on and the knowledge they give about the current trends and techniques the top producers, engineers, and mixers has been paramount to me improving in recording and mixing. If you're into audio, no matter what genre you work in, this podcast will help you improve and give you more confidence in your abilities.


Ever since I discovered this podcast I have been very inspired to keep working in Audio, thanks guys!

Best Source for Audio Education

Every podcast is loaded with tons of information on everything music. If your not learning about awesome mixing and mastering techniques, your learning about the other valuable information that goes on behind the scenes in the music industry. Along with Nail The Mix, this is the best place for audio education!

Always Be Learning!

Since listening to this podcast I've shifted from listening to music on my carrides to these podcasts and I cannot stress how much I've learned in just a few short months. Essential, fun listening for anyone interested in anything from recording processes to music business philosophies


Started listing with in the last few month and can’t stop. Already through most of the podcasts. Have learned a lot from the hosts and guests...

Just want I was looking for!

I love podcasts and really wanted one centered around audio production. This was way more than I could ever hope. I am now a proud member of the Nail The Mix and URM Enhanced academies. These guys offer an opportunity that is so unreal and there is no better way to accelerate your skills.

An Incredible Wealth of Knowledge

When I first discovered Nail The Mix and this podcast I had no idea I'd learn as much as I have and will continue to do. The guests are all people that have been in the business for years and have unique experiences and ideas to learn from. I highly recommend this podcast for anyone interested in the music business. Topics in podcasts are not always solely focused on production though and there are often engaging and interesting stories even for people not interested in joining the music world. The best thing you can do is surround yourself with people better and more knowledgeable about the subject you're interested in. This podcast and Nail The Mix provide that opportunity to people who aren't anywhere close to being in the network to do that in their daily lives. I am incredibly grateful to all of them for doing what they can to spread their knowledge. I have wanted this exact sort of opportunity for a few years now. I only wish I had gotten involved sooner.

Life changing

I've been working with audio for the better part of the last 10 years and learned more in a these podcasts than I did in my life. This is a place where you get to see inside the minds of some of the best engineers/producers that the world has to offer.

This is where you come to learn!

I've learned more in the 9 months that i've been in contact with these guys, than the last 6 years trying on my own. If you have a question, they have an anwser...or they know someone who does.

So much good recording/audio engineering info!

These guys know how to get great sounds, are current working pros, and are helping you get to the same place they are. If you're new to audio engineering or if you've been around a while, listening to this podcast WILL make you better.


I have a degree in music industry recording arts. This podcast and nail the mix are still showing me new things everyday and help me take my productions and creativity to the next level!

The best record podcasts hands down

Can't beat this podcast! Every topic from acoustics to business gets talked about from real producers and major game changers in the music/recording business. You can't get the little golden nuggets of info packed in these episode anywhere else. No small time...

These guys are great

Joey, Eyal, and Joel bring a world of knowledge and experience to the table. Then on top of that along with their expertise they invite a number of industry professionals to help with mixing, producing, and other aspects audio today!

This is the podcast you're looking for

If you want to know what it takes to succeed in the audio production industry this is the podcast for you.

Couldn't ask for more

This is the best podcast for anyone who is interested in making a career out of music. You get to hear the struggles these dudes had to deal with on their way to success. Already saving me a lot of time by bypassing all these problems that I otherwise would of had if it wasn't for them. Eyal, Joel, and Joey are amazing producers and I'm very grateful to be learning directly from them. If you want to succeed then this podcast will give you the knowledge to do so!

I really wish I hadn’t already paid for audio school...

I wish I had this 6 years ago before I started college. I have learned more from their live mix sessions in 6 hours than I ever did in college for 6 years and over $100,000. You won’t get a better deal or better info from an educational standpoint in audio with this incredible organization. They are the nicest guys, and I consider them my friends even though I’ve just communicated with them online and have never met them in person. Do yourself a favor and give this podcast a shot. I barely listen to actual music anymore because I’m always listening to these.

Listening to this podcast has not only made me a better producer, but has also prepared me for many situations that I'll likely encounter in the future. Joel, Joey, and EYALLLLLL LEVI are very interesting and keep things light and funny but deliver the message you need to hear. 5/5


I discovered this podcast a few months ago and my mixes have improved leaps and bounds since then. I get super excited every time there's a new episode because I know I'm going to learn something new each and every time. The a-list guests are never shy about giving away their secrets and they focus a lot on the business aspect of engineering and mixing as well. A+ podcast for sure!

Absolutely amazing

Best podcast I listen to hands down.


This podcast, alongside Nail the Mix, has greatly contributed to my groewth as an engineer over the past two years. The amount of content covered rivals some of the best recording schools out there

This is just the beginning!

This is my favorite thing to listen to. I have never heard audio covered this way, this well, ever before. The URM guys really know their stuff, and they stay current with the industry. URM Nail the Mix(a Mix competition where you can also learn a TON) is a BLAST!

Invaluable knowledge from some of the best!

If you're into metal or modern rock and punk you can learn so much from each of these podcasts. I can't believe this stuff is free so take advantage. I highly recommend signing up for their Nail the Mix site as well if you have the money and want to learn to mix some pro tracks. Just a great community they have built here all around.


Great podcast. If you're looking to learn and not be bored doing it, this is for you.

A wealth of information for any aspiring producer/mixer/engineer. I wish this was around when I started recording 15 years ago!

Cool dudes telling it how it is

This pod is great for someone getting into audio and want to learn from the vast guest list of top audio engineers, producers, mixers, and musicians. Mostly in the metal genera but that works perfect for me!

Funniest most awesome pod cast

With the special guests each week there's always something new to take away. If you are not signed up , stop what your doing and listen!


I find the podcast as an online solution to Audio Production Technical Problems and Industry Related Information. Hosted by 3 of the Worlds Best Metal Producers that have vast vision into ALL Genre's of Music and the Engineering / Production of it. They discuss everything from Digital Audio Workstations to Quantizing MIDI. They dig deep with MANY of some of the BIGGEST Metal and Music Personal. There's a bit of something for EVERYONE in here!

Every musician/producer needs this!

Cars rides, sitting at home, waiting in line. I listen to this wealth of information every time I get the chance!


Love these guys. They get to the heart of it, have fun, and don’t waste your time.

Thanks for the information!

ChaosBasement studio

Hands down the best audio engineering podcast on the planet!!! This is must hear information for any aspiring Mix Engineer, Mastering Engineer, Recording Engineer or Music nerd!! Love it! Outstanding work Eyal, Joel And Joey

So sick

Killer information from the most respected dudes

I can't say enough good things

I am a subscriber to both Nail the Mix and URM Academy. The services they provide are perfect for anyone just starting out to seasoned veterans! As for the podcast, it's amazing. It's a breath of fresh air to have a podcast I can actually connect with. They discuss topics that I want to hear and can't get anywhere else!! It has really changed my life, I almost completely gave up on audio until I signed up for my first month of NTM. It's been helping me find my passion again. Thank you URM!

Inspiring. Makes me want get back into it.

I haven't been recording for some time. I've gotten my AA in digital audio engineering. I've been working and I know I need to get back into it. The guests they have are great and have good insight and great tips. It's great to hear what they use and how they use it. A lot of the episodes have a same saying, they don't know what they're doing and they learn and experiment. Make me feel inspired to try new things and move forward. The only thing that irritates me about the podcast is Eyal. He always brown noses and thinks the way he does things is the right way. I can just hear it in his voice. Also the flow is kinda weird at times. Very edited. But it won't stop me from listening. A+


Eyal, Joey and Joel collectively have decades of audio experience under their belt and they have so much knowledge between them. Each host has their own skill set and isn't afraid to tell it how it is. They give you the most relevant information for modern audio engineers and on top of that they seem like really nice guys and fun to listen to.

Best Source of Audio Information

I can't stress enough to anyone who is thinking about becomming an engineer to check out this podcast. While it may not even be in your realm of music, the information that these guys have to bestow on anyone who is trying to learn more about audio is well worth it!

Killer podcast!!!!

I love the URM podcast! So much great information. I am also stoked that I joined "nail the mix" and "URM enhanced" off of listening to the free podcast. If you love to hear about professional audio production this is a great way to spend your valuable time.

Best Music Production Podcast evaaaa!!

Out of the few podcasts I listen to this is by far the best, each week I'm like a little kid getting excited about Christmas. Wanting to up my game with mixing I joined the Nail The Mix crew, got Periphery stems and already started mixing. Everyone should join! Keep it up guys!

Fantastic Content

This Podcast is entertaining ,humorous, informative, and insightful. It is applicable to beginners and experienced producers, engineers, and musicians alike. It's beneficial whether you work with heavy music or not. The interviews are fantastic, and so many times, I take away invaluable "gems" of wisdom from these guys. Their experiences yield great stories and examples from with to learn. I can confidently say this is my favorite recoding podcast.

Love this podcast!

As a fan of music production these guys are doing a great job! Not only is the podcast entertaining but educational as well. I've learned tons of tips from these Eyal, Joey and Joel that have helped my mixes. Keep it up!


Love hearing your tips. Joeys work is some of my most listened to music

Awesome Podcast

I've listened to almost all of the podcast episodes including those not yet posted on ITunes thanks to my subscription to Nail the Mix. It's safe to say this is the best podcast out there regardless of category. There is tons of information around recording, mixing, mastering, songwriting, producing and more. I get a good amount of laughs out of it to boot. Enjoy!

A must-sub for budding producers and engineers

Having started to run a small studio of my own earlie rthis year, I have found this podcast quite invaluavle. There are lots of YouTube channels out there devoted to audio, but not too many podcasts, and URM fits the bill very nicely.

One of the best Podcast for newer and established engineers,mixers,producers alike!

When I first joined Nail the Mix I was so thrilled I could get an even more insight on whats going on in the industry from these Podcasts. So much knowledge to soak up and I think everyone should invest in this!

Great podcast!

Love to shuffle through these while I work on things. Good way to listen to some great conversations, educate myself and get stuff done at the same time. Thanks for the the podcasts guys!


Can't even place a value on this stuff. It's a chance to learn from some of the best in the business. They don't have to share this kind of stuff but they do. That makes it all the more amazing.

The best audio engineering podcast

Great podcast about recording, producing, mixing, etc. Shares really knowledge with people, not fluff info!

Great podcast!

This pod cast is great to listen to whether you want to learn or are just bored. It has some really good information that will help with your mixes.

Insight across the board

Incredibly valuable insight and advice on not just recording, but band dynamics and band life in general. These eps are teeming with stuff that should be taken straight to heart by everyone in your band or if your involved in recording in any way shape or form. Well done and valuable is an understatement.

I find each podcast to be helpful and informative.

Supplement Your Education!

I'm lucky enough to go to a local college that has a fantastic recording program. Sadly my school doesn't have a crazy heavy focus on Metal and Heavy music, so I've turned to this podcast to really help solidify my personal prefence for mixes. I've binged on a great portion of the podcasts upon discovering them and really enjoy the interview style talkshow. The whole show is very inviting and a nice change of pace.


This is some great info, easy to understand and pretty great!

mixing gods

great podcast


The amount of information gained from listening to these incredible episodes is overwhelmingly awesome. Every episode changes how I work with audio whether it's a new micing technique, paying attention to something new in a mix, or just a more efficient way to organize files! You also get little anecdotes about popular bands that are just amusing.

Best Audio Engineering Community Period!

I have been listening to the podcast for months now and the wealth of information these three season vets give is amazing, along with special guest who give industry insight just leaves the listener with a sense of control to take their productions to the next level, but also what advice they can apply towards their own business practices to achieve a successful professional career in the audio industry.

Car rides are much more enjoyable.

Yeah you got music and all but whats better than 3 of the best educate in a humorous entertaining way? I've never once enjoyed a podcast until I found URM. I'm a podcast listener because of URM. Amazing thing going on here.


This is hands down the best information about recording that has ever been offered. Those of you that are serious realize this subject has always been hidden information that the pro’s kept to themselves and never shared unless you were fortunate enough to be in the right place at the right time. Usually that meant you had to sweep floors for a studio before you were allowed to get in the drivers seat and actually learn. Well, I don’t have time to sweep floors, nor will I….I want to drive. I already had a career, but this information is priceless and taken me to another level and quickly. Quit messing with nonsense and misinformation on youtube like i did for so long bc these guys are offering what you looking for….the little things that will take you to another level. You would be doing yourself an injustice to not capitalize on this opportunity bc nothing like this has ever been offered before. No longer do you have to wonder what goes on behind the magical curtain. Thanks for this guys!

Valuable information!

I’ve been listening to these podcasts for the last 3-4 months, and the amount of information they pack into each show is just incredible! Thank you Joey, Joel, and Eyal!

Great info!

Wonderful set of professionals giving us aspiring producers very helpful information and insight on the recording, mixing, and mastering process of making quality records! I'm definitely getting better because of listening to these guys and also you definitely want to join Nail the Mix as well!

Great educational tool

Solid material from dedicated professionals


Good place to start if you're wanting to learn more about recording!

The best source of audio knowledge, period.

I've looked for many many years trying to find something that demystifies the art of audio production. The search is over. This podcast and all their other sources have taught me more in 4 months than 6 years of other subscriptions and research. They know how to break it down and make anything understandable. I tell everyone, and I'm telling you, to subscribe to this podcast & Nail the Mix if you are even a little interested in audio production. Go, NOW!

Incredibly Informative

Sturgis, Levi, and Wanasek bring a great knowledge base to this podcast with years of experience in audio production. In today’s fast-paced industry, you need to know what’s what, and these guys don’t cut corners.

After one year of listening to this podcast I feel like a grizzled old veteran of the recording industry. They have great guests that are real professionals in the trenches. If you don't improve from listening to this podcast then you can't be saved. You should pick something else to do with your life.

AE Samurai

Since I started listening to this podcast and being a member of Nail the Mix, roughly four months ago, I can already see a measurable growth in my audio engineering skills. I have recommended it to every student of mine interested in honing their audio engineer skills.

This stuff is gold

I've been recording and mixing heavy music for over 15 years and these guys know what's up. No matter your experience level there's something to learn here, and they're also some of the most active, engaged, and truly helpful people in the business. \m/


Pumped to no longer be small time.


Such a helpful and informative podcast. It has helped me overcome many obstacles in the beginning stages of recording. I would recommend this to anyone.


The best podcast ever! I've learned so much about audio from Joey, Joel, and eyal. I'm thankful for what these guys do and how high they value education for their subscribers

Seriously the best thing that’s happened in music production in the last 5 years

I’ve seen lots of “tools” and “resources” in the past 5 or so years, and nothing has been able to compare to what these guys offer. This podcast is pure gold, and would recommend this to anyone even slightly interested in making music.

Amazing source of knowledge

Along with Nail The Mix, these podcasts give you an uncensored account of just about everything that goes on in todays actual music industry. Joey, Eyal, and Joel seriously together have just about all the knowledge you’d ever need to be an amazing audio engineer and they’re kind enough to share it ALL with everyone through these podcasts and URM with Nail the Mix. I’m grateful to have found them and to be a part of all of this!

Joey, Eyal, and Joel are masters at their craft

Joey, Eyal, and Joel are masters at their craft, and if you want to learn EVERYTHING there is to know about the recording industry and making records sound amazing, you definitely need to check out this podcast. I have been listening to this podcast since day one, and it always has something spicy to keep my listening to the next episode. 5/5 would recommend to all of my friends even minutely interested in audio.

URM Podcast has helped my productions so much.

Seriously, subscribe to this podcast. Absorb it, learn from it, and apply it. You’ll have better productions across the board. Awesome podcast!

Good Stuff

Tons of great info if your into recording.

Quality Information

You can go to professional school, university, or teach yourself, but youtube can't teach you the content that is covered here. Very coherent and easy to grasp information.
