Some of you will know about the Home Mastering Masterclass already. It’s an 8-week online course, where you get to be a fly on the wall of my home studio, and hopefully learn something in the process – you can read all about it here, or just watch the trailer above.
I’ve run the course several times now, and it’s always been a great success – the members have loved it, and hopefully you will, too !
And every time I run it, a message comes through clearer and clearer – mastering is simple. We all like to make it complicated, but the truth is, in essence the process is very simple:
- Choose the right level.
- Choose the right EQ.
- Compress or limit if necessary.
That’s it !
Well OK, it’s a little more complicated than that – I wrote about the process in more detail here. But it really is true – at it’s heart, mastering is a simple process, and the more we keep that in mind, the better it’s likely to turn out.
Which doesn’t mean there isn’t a mass of information on the Home Mastering Masterclass course to help you do the best job you can of it, though !
So please check out the trailer, or click here for more information to see if you want to find out more – and perhaps I’ll see you on the course !
And either way, remember – if mastering ends up getting too complicated, you may be doing it wrong !
