Audio. Video. Production. Business.

Welcome musicians and audio geeks alike.

I’m Nathan E Adam and this site is full of content and videos I’ve produced to help you learn Pro Tools, learn recording, and learn mixing.

In case we haven’t met, I’ve been an Audio and Video producer for over a decade, and have been blessed with some amazing opportunities. As a kid from Kansas who dreamed of a great career in the music industry, this site is my opportunity to give back some of the production tricks & techniques I’ve picked up along the way.

My career started at the venerable, and I’ve spent the last 10 years teaching at some of the largest audio production degrees in the country (Belmont University and Middle Tennessee State University).

From starting a multi-studio Pro Tools HD facility, to producing, editing and working with unbelievable artists and producers on dozens of TV shows, books and instructional videos, I know that if the doors could open for me, they can open for absolutely anyone.

Enjoy these videos. Share them. Whatever. I’ve made them for the future great artists and engineers who want to develop the skills to make great records.

Pro Tools 9 Music Mixing

It’s always nice to improve your music mixing skills, and Pro Tools provides a lot of great tools for getting killer mixes.

Over this hour and a half, we’ll look in depth at a workflow to give you better mixes.

Pro Tools 9 Track Editing

Ever needed to fix a track that had a whole lot of Vocal and Instrumental Flubs?

In this video we’re going to dig into a track that was designed to introduce you to salvaging a disasterous recording session. Flying around Vocals, Keys, Guitars and Bass, we’ll also introduce the Nashville Number Chart.

Pro Tools 9 Editing – Dance Mixes

If you’ve been an audio editor for any length of time, you’ve been asked to cut a bunch of dance tracks together for your local cheerleading squad.

In addition to being a great way to meet cheerleaders (and likely the only time you’ll have any in your studio), this hour long video will wear out your fingers with my special blend of Pro Tools shortcuts. Enjoy.
