Mastering in the Box with Ableton Live

This course achieves what no one thought was possible, including the person that made it! Producertech tutor Nick D'Ombrain, owner of Zeitgeist Mastering, has surprised himself with the outstanding results that can be achieved by mastering using only the devices that come with Ableton Live 9. 

Currently residing in Berlin, Nick has worked with a huge number of impressive names from the music industry - Alex Smoke, Sascha Braemer, Orbital, D-Unity and Eric Volta to name but a few. With his vast array of predominantly high end plug-in mastering tools, limiting himself to Live 9's devices seemed an impossible task. However, as 8 hours of quality tutorials proves, professional results are entirely possible, and this course shows you how! 

Accompanying the tutorials is a Live Template Set, containing a giant Mastering Rack, constructed throughout the course, so students can open up the session and import their own tracks to get going straight away. In addition, there is a written Pro Tips Guide, a Mastering Flow Diagram and 8 Custom Mastering Weapons (Live Racks), which include an Aphex-style Exciter, a Bass Maximiser and various Stereo Enhancement Effects. 

Check out the pre-mastered and mastered versions of the track Nick uses as part of the course, to demonstrate the effectiveness of his Live mastering setup.
