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, you can achieve anything and everything you can imagine 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 deep 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
- Using linear phase multi band compression to balance dynamics and polish up your sound
- Using analog emulation and saturation to introduce warmth, character and richness

frequently asked questions
You're right there are tons of courses and videos out there about EDM production. The problem with pretty much all of them is that they leave stuff out and don't answer all of your questions. Every Beat Tweaks course is built from years of experience and constantly updated based on feedback from students and other producers.
Also, you'll never be left to just learn on your own. When you take a Beat Tweaks course, the support and answers to all your questions comes with it.
Nope. You can follow along and learn no matter what DAW, plugins or equipment you have. It doesn't matter if you use Ableton Live, Logic Pro, FL Studio or Garageband, the concepts you learn can be applied anywhere.
You'll also learn how to use the plugins and equipment you already have to make amazing music. So even if all you have is a laptop and cheap earbuds, you'll still be able to make professional EDM tracks.
This course is meant to help you learn the skills you need to make amazing music at a fraction of the cost of hiring a coach.
If you do end of needing one-on-one help because you don't have the time or simply don't want to do it yourself, then you can I offer discounted coaching calls to my students.
You can also check out this awesome service (if you use Ableton or Logic Pro) where you send in your project and you get it back professionally produced, mixed and mastered.
You have 30 days to ask for a full refund, no questions asked. That being said we're always trying to improve, so your feedback is always appreciated.
