"I love this; I know when I have questions, I'll get expert opinions and guidance back; without having to wade through petty arguments and irrelevant content. Joe is warm and caring; 20 minutes into our first conversations we were laughing like we'd been in the trenches together for 20 years. Highly recommend!"John Tompkins

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

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.The Audio Post Mentorship platform includes, networking with peers, tutorial videos, scheduled chats, webinars, and unfettered access to lead mentor Joe Miuccio.
