About This Class

In this class we will go step by step as I master a song for rapper Cam Meekins. The topics we will discuss are: Compression, EQ, M/S Processing, Tape Emulation, Multi-band Compression, Limiting and how to send your song out for final delivery. After this class you will be able to take your song at home and give it that radio ready polish it deserves!

Very descriptive both verbally and visually
I found the tools (plug-ins) and the work flow very helpful. I just finished up a final mixes for 12 songs, and I've incorporated what I've learned in this course, into a new, and I'd suspect better, template for the mastering portion of this current CD project. I did find, however, the use of a sample song with profanity to be a poor choice on Matty's part.
