Our Mastering Course is designed for today’s multi-genre modern Engineers. While being completely focused on Mastering “in-the-box” (in a computer), we provide you with the ability to achieve that “Commercial Sound” thru the understanding of various Analog Circuits and Effect Processors. The end result you will leave with a fully Mastered track, and all the steps to continue improving and forwarding your abilities for decades to come.
The techniques can be applied within any Digital Audio Workstation.

Software required for homework:
2. Any Digital Audio Workstation.
Hardware required for homework:
It is suggested that you own a pair of Full-Range Headphones, and/or Nearfield Monitors (Studio Speakers) before taking this course. This will ensure that you can practice and do the homework affiliated with this Course. If you are ready to buy Monitors and Headphones, wait until after your first session to get advice on what to get, and where to get it.
Many other Plug-ins will be discussed within this course. All other third-party Plug-Ins are optional, and it is suggested to take the course before investing in ‘add-on’ plug-ins. Simply, Ozone or Fabfilter Suite will be all you need to get a professional sounding Commercial Master. Your tracks will sound as good as the music you listen to and/or DJ.
Many learners these days prefer to use their own laptops on our courses for things like getting help customizing their set-up, and they have their project exactly as they left it in class to work on at home. So we made the course more affordable, but added a $75 supplement for learners who wish to hire an iMac loaded with software. Please ensure you book an iMac when you book your course if you need one. Controller keyboards, and headphones are provided for everyone.
36 Hours | In-Person: $1199 | Online Remote Attendance: $719
