    This course is pretty clear! The different stages of mastering (eq, compression, limiting and dithering) are explained very well.

    I learned some new stuff, totally worth the money.


  4. 5

    I learnt so much from this course. whatever genre of style of music you produce you can learn a lot from this. Fruad takes you through the whole mastering process step by step. He is very easy to follow and understand. I hope he does more tutorials in the future for me to buy and learn from.

    This course gives you a solid foundation of the mastering process with stock DAW plugins.

    Excellent delivery for someone new to the Mastering lingo. Before you start destroying one of your own tracks, take this course as it moves along swiftly and Faud makes things easy to understand.

  19. 5

    Fuad passes on to you precious information that you need. But the subject could be like a raincoat on a sunny day it may look boring to you if you just watch it for the heck of it and don’t need it that day, mainly because of highly detailed abstract nature of the mastering and audio. But get the course and start it a day when you need to master a song. You’ll realize that you’d sponge all the information with great interest and immediately use and get impressive result. Very important distinctions are made during the course that I believe would help mastering engineers of all levels.

  20. 5

    Nice course ! I learn a very cool secret here 🙂

  26. 5

    Simple and straight forward. The track noticeably became better with each step and with clear explanations on why it became better.

    Wow, it’s an eye-opener on how to produce great mastering results with Ableton w/o spending further money on plugins. You should bring a sound understanding of sound production, then it really adds to your knowledge. The course is built up in an easy-to-follow and very comprehensive way. Fuad makes you listen along a lot, and at first that seems a bit lengthy, but eventually you realize how that enhances your own listening skills. Then he explains what he does or just did and you start connecting it to what you hear. Very well done!

  30. 5

    Great Course , I’ve really relied on other people to run the mastering process mainly do to lack of confidence. I can track and mix fine … but mastering ain’t mixing LOL …
    I feel pretty confident now that I can get one “out the gate” , thank you so much for putting this course together …


  31. 4

    good clear examples and instructions

    Instructor was very good at explaining in layman’s terms anyone can learn and understand mastering if they apply what he’s saying.

  34. Luke GamertsfelderAugust 22, 2017 at 1:12 pm


    i want to make music, not this

    Hands down the best audio mastering course, these concepts could be applied to any genre with any daw. In other words, it is a concise explanation of the ‘concepts’ necessary to begin to actually master your own tracks. Also, his attitude is very humble and modest. Which to me is a clear indication that he is an expert in this particular field as he doesn’t have to bring anything or anyone down to be at the highest level!
