Great videos on the mastering process -- almost too much to process. I know I'll revisit some sections again...

A nice course about mastering. A do it yourself approach, well suited for the EDM producer as well for any other genre. It's all about using the information well.

A good introductory course. If you are brand new to mastering, this is a great start. If you have been mastering for a while and are looking for advanced technique or theory, look elsewhere. It is what it is... a good intro course!

Excellent course, truly. Not 5-stars because really I would have liked to see the "process" from start to finish instead of the many different tools from many different companies, et al. However, Mo Volans keeps the topics interesting and is on-point. Every recording musician needs to go through this tutorial.

This course is simply amazing! I couldn't imagine that mastering could be so enjoyable. Easy to follow and understand, I really liked the tips and the plugins presented here. Since it's about mastering, I recommend to not listen to this course with a 1$ headphone or speaker.

PROPER class! It cleared up so many little things that I originally was fuzzy on. Thanks for clearing that fog!

WOW.... Mo Volans spares no punches in this course. There's all the information needed for mastering; and more importantly, it all applies to the mixing process too. I've learnt so much more about the LPX plugins, and how they compare to other 3rd partly plugs. It's amazing what can be achieved. I can go on and on about how fantastic this course is, but all I'll say is it is worth every watch; and definitely over and over again until it all sticks.
