We will be mixing and mastering a track from start to finish in this course. You will get an in-depth, real world view of exactly how to mix and master your own music. You will learn the art and science behind various types of compression (regular compression, sidechain compression, multiband compression) and some recommended settings that can be used depending on the type of sound you are treating with compression.
What are the requirements?
You should have access to a modern Digital Audio Workstation (DAW) such as Ableton Live, Cubase, Logic Pro, Reason or others.
You should have a fundamental understanding of how to use EQ, compression, reverb, delays, etc.
As stated above, around 6 months of electronic music production experience is recommended.

What is the target audience?
Anyone who has at least 6 months of experience of making electronic music can take this course, whether you are relatively new to music production, intermediate or advanced. I am confident that even advanced level producers will still learn a lot from this course.
If you are completely new to making electronic music, the material covered in this course may be too advanced for your current skill level.
