Learn how to turn your songs into crystal clear, rich and powerful commercial-level masters alongside a professional audio engineer. My name is Bastiaan, I’m a full-time audio engineer and music producer and I’d love to help you with getting your music ready for release and radio. This extensive mastering class provides a framework for massively improving the overall audio quality of your music and includes fundamental knowledge on when and why to use what plugins and techniques. We’ll master a high quality demo track together from start to finish and you’ll learn everything you need to know about compression, EQ, saturation and much more. I’ll go very much in-depth on every important process we come across.
Why should you listen to what I have to say?
I have gathered a substantial amount of knowledge and practical experience on this subject through my education in music and thousands of hours of hands-on work as a music producer and audio engineer. Some of my recent collaborations include Sara Bareilles, The Kennedy Center of Performing Arts, Sound Adventures, Babyface, Benelli Motorcycles and hundreds of indie artists and organizations.
Before you watch:
•The class is taught in Ozone 8, but can be followed using any other DAW.
•No expensive software or hardware is required to follow the class. Stock plugins will do just fine.
•This is not a quick n’ easy type of class. We will dive into the matter of mastering really deep and explore the finest details of compression, equalization, etc.
•A basic understanding of music production is required for the class to be useful.
•Experimenting is key. Use my advice as a framework, not a template to re-use over and over.
•Remember to take breaks regularly to keep the ears fresh.
