When it comes to mastering EDM, few names are as synonymous with ‘industry-standard quality’ as Waves.  With a virtually endless selection of plugins to choose from, anything imaginable can be achieved in terms of mastering.

Mastering electronic dance music can be tough, but by having a clear plan of action and the right set of plugins, you can get a grip on the mastering process and understand why and how to use the tools you have at your disposal.

In this course I’ll walk you through mastering a hard-hitting disco house track from start to finish using some of the best plugins Waves has to offer.

We’ll dive into EQ, linear phase processing, multi-band compression, peak and RMS levels, analog emulation, and much more.  Some of the things you will learn in this course include:

  • Why and how to use linear phase EQ to balance frequencies, improve clarity and reduce muddiness
