Watch him at work

Watch Maor At Work

Maor will master a song from scratch. Due to the characteristics of the song, his approach to its mastering will be that of enhancing it.

For this, he will be auditioning different pieces of gear, to see which ones seem to offer something that fits the song.

After selecting those with the most potential, he'll start combining them, to find out which are the ones that really work with the song.

The last step will be fine tuning the chain, and creating the final master.

FAQ

What previous experience is required?

You need to have some basic understanding of audio equipment and signal flow. For example, you'll see Maor operate compressors, but it is expected that you already know what attack time, threshold, ratio, etc. are.

However, don't worry if you are not familiar with the exact pieces of gear Maor will be using, as you'll find extensive information about all of them. In fact, that's also one of the goals of the master class: offering a closer view to some of the top-notch pieces of equipment Maor uses in his daily work.

What equipment do I need?

If you are reading this, chances are you already own a pair of pro or semi-pro speakers or headphones that you use to produce, record, mix and/or master. Those will be fine.

However, bear in mind that some of the sonic details discussed are very subtle, but that's the name of the game!

What if I don’t like the course?

Once you discover the vast amount of useful information included in this master class, we are positive you are going to love it.

In any case, all our classes offer a 7 days 100% money back guarantee. If during those seven days, by any chance, you find out the content is not right for you, just let us know and we will make a full refund, no questions asked.
