A free private social network for audio professionals with a separate mentorship platform for the next generation


A Private community built exclusively for the audio industry.

My name is Joe and I've been in audio post production for the past 30+ years in NYC. Audio Pro Network is a FREE one-of-a-kind, private, global community that I created in 2008 as an alternative to the various message boards and social networks of the time.I designed Audio Pro Network to be a patch bay for people and a noise free alternative to the chaos of public facing social media. It's a place where audio professionals can gather socially or use the power of community to make the industry a better place.Well, here we are in 2024, and now more than ever, big public facing social media is becoming even more intrusive and unpredictable. Relentless advertising, phishing and bots are just some of the problems plaguing your user experience and compromising your privacy. My network is private, free and filled with audio industry veterans just like you.

"An audio post mentorship platform for the next generation"

I've been mentoring young people in this industry for years. After building this network for Pro's, I thought it only fitting to build a separate platform for those just starting out.The mentorship platform is free, private and filled with people just like you. Stop making anonymous posts in public social networks when you need advice. On APN, our mentors are always kind and want you to succeed.So if you ever wanted an audio post mentor you've come to the right place! If you're currently in school or even recently graduated, this community will give you the extra support you've been looking for.

"It's time to pull the patch on big social"

Join me and hundreds of other audio professionals from all over the world in the only private, global online community dedicated to the audio industry.Let's pull the patch on big social together! I'm doing something very different here and I hope you'll join me.

I’m an audio post mixer from NY and now I work remotely. I miss the community of the audio world I grew up in where I worked in an audio facility with other sound designers like me and we exchanged techniques and ideas. Now that "world" is the Audio Pro Network. Every day I get a digest of what people posted and even though I’ve only been a member for a few months I can see that this is something I will be involved with for years to come. I see that it gives me a feeling of connection to the professionals all around me even though we are in different cities. Ideas are shared and suggestions for gear and there’s no "hyped" commercial sales activity going on…it’s just real people in my industry sharing ideas. So glad I found it.Ray Palagy

"I founded Audio Pro Network back in 2008 to unify audio professionals and enhance careers through private networking. The addition of the private mentorship platform completes this mission by creating a one-of-a-kind transformational experience dedicated to helping forge success for the next generation of audio pros.

I’ve been working for two decades in sound post-production, ranging from dubbing to broadcast and films. I specialize in voice artist direction, sound design, dialogue editorial, and re-recording mixing. Mentoring, for me, should be a dynamic exchange, where sharing knowledge and engaging with others makes us evolve and improve. Everyone has something to add to almost everything, and personality makes work unique. Improving technical skills is something a manual can provide, but being original is the way to set ourselves apart. Through this platform, I propose a dynamic exchange that will make us discover and develop our unique personalities.Matias Caldarella

"I'm an audio post professional and over the past 25 years, I taught myself a lot of what I know today, but the majority of what I learned I picked up from others who took the time to add water to the garden of dreams growing in my mind. Now I have the opportunity to BE water and use my vast array of knowledge, skills and life experiences to save you a trip if I can afford to do so. I've mentored folks who went on to the likes of NBC Universal, TikTok, Margarita Pictures (LA) and more. I don't have all the answers, but I'm pretty sure that we can find YOUR answers together."Gregory Vilfranc

"I've been in the audio post-production world for over 20 years in the New York City area. Having worked in numerous roles across over 200 projects I have acquired a wide range of skills and knowledge. I am constantly searching for new techniques and ways to make workflows more efficient, constantly learning and sharing what I learn. I tend to be laidback, so feel free to ask questions and start the conversation whenever you are ready. I'm here for you."James David Redding III

"As an audio engineer working in film/tv, my work has been featured on network television, OTT streaming platforms, theaters, festivals and some have won awards and been nominated for Emmys. I’ve also spent several years as a full-time instructor at SAE. One of my passions is sharing what I know and learn with others and helping give guidance to those finding their way in this vast industry. There’s no one path that’s right for everyone and hopefully through this mentorship program I can help you."DeLaVanta Tabor

"I'm a freelance Sound Designer and Re-Recording Mixer based in Dallas, TX. I started out in music and then moved into post 21 years ago after finishing school at The Conservatory for Recording Arts & Sciences. Once in post, I spent 12 years on staff at Reel FX Creative Studios working on animated feature films, special attraction rides and experiences, national advertising campaigns, branded content and more. I went freelance in 2017 and also taught audio post production classes part-time at MediaTech in Dallas. I currently work on TV shows, streaming content, advertising, branded content, indie film work and some music mastering for library music catalogs. I'm an active MPSE member, current Professional Member of The Recording Academy, a member of the Collin College Video Advisory Council, and a guest speaker at SMU Film Department.

Frequently Asked Questions >>>



What is Audio Pro Network?

Facebook, Instagram and Twitter can no longer successfully provide the security, dedication, and focus that private groups need. These platforms have grown so large that meaningful conversations are constantly pitted against trolls and misinformation. Audio Pro Network is a private niche social community dedicated to the audio industry, with a high signal to noise ratio and a separate mentorship platform, Audio Pro Network is supporting the industry as well as the next generation of audio professionals. If you aren’t already a member, consider joining and pull the patch on big social.


How long have you been around?

I've been around for a pretty long time! My name is Joe Miuccio, the founder of Audio Pro Network, and I've been an audio post professional for over 30 years in New York City. I formed Audio Pro Network way back in 2008 as a private social network for verified audio professionals. In 2019 I launched the mentorship platform, successfully helping and inspiring members from all over the world.


Why did you start Audio Pro Network?

I wanted to increase my professional contacts in the industry and I wasn’t satisfied with the audio message boards and business networks of the day. Non-professional members on those sites contributed to misinformation and the experience was often an unfriendly one for me. So, I set out to create a welcoming, helpful environment with a bigger objective; Create a new, friendly pro audio culture, combined with an inclusive mentorship platform to help the next generation.


What's the difference between the professional and mentorship platforms?

The Professional membership is a customized private social network designed with a low noise floor. It's a professional atmosphere with no trolls, bots or tracking. It comes with a host of benefits and it's free for verified Professionals.


Why are the professional and mentorship communities free?

Professional membership has always been free and it was always my promise that it would remain so. There are already many free social networks, so charging for Audio Pro Network didn’t seem like the right thing to do.Mentorship: When I was young I was lucky to work with great people that mentored me from the very humble beginnings of my career. Nowadays that kind of generosity is very hard to find. I made the Mentorship Platform so I could give back to the industry I love.
