A nice, broad overview of mastering. I'd say this one's good for starting out learning about mastering, but if you're past that point and are looking for more detail, I would recommend the Audio Concepts series videos instead.

Two thumbs up man. I mean, you said a couple of things here that I've never heard or read anywhere before, and it blew my mind, holy crap that's not what everyone is saying and it totally makes sense. Not gonna reveal it here in the review, just watch, it's a quick course anyway...

I really enjoyed this mastering class. It was exactly what I was hoping for. There are countless courses on how to use certain mastering plugins and apps from a technical perspective, but very few courses that really dive into the more gnostic secrets of mastering. This class is just that. You will come out wiser and armed with new tips and tricks that you can apply in your next session. I also enjoyed the very original examples that help to explain and cement certain important concepts. Very well done!

There's a lot of relevant info that comes across quickly to assimilate in one gulp. Fortunately, the course is broken down into bite size pieces which can be snacked on as many times as necessary. For my taste, very well presented!
