Mastering Tutorial Part 2: The Secret Notebook of a Mastering Engineer (Advanced)

Commercial sound and RMS in one step?

If I could teach you that in one article I would. The truth is, if you want your masters to sound crisp, clear, loud, spacious, dynamic and big then you're not going to learn how to do it in one afternoon - audio mastering requires patience. But it doesn't take long to learn either. You just need to be willing to put in a little time and read the mastering tutorials you find on this website. Start from the beginning and take your time, if you feel you're reading something you already know, simply skip to the next chapter.

I understand it must be very tempting to jump ahead to chapters that have interesting titles like 'Fatness and RMS'. But if you really want to find out how to master your own mixes (or other's mixes) like a true pro, you need to follow what I've written, in the order I've written it. This website is laid out in such a way that it takes you on a journey of discovery. It takes you through the mastering process, start to finish. Then once you've become a master of the basic tool kit, you have the option of moving to a higher level where you can discover a whole load of new and powerful techniques - things that many people would never know that mastering engineers are doing.

This website is free to view and is totally dedicated to teaching you how to become pro at audio mastering. There is no other website like it.

Do you want to become a master of audio?...
