I can sense the tension.

You bristle up a little bit when you read that subject line.

You’ve probably heard some forum “guru” say something like that, and he types it with such passion and authority that it must be true.


I don’t know about you, but I’m the kind of person who doesn’t like to hear the word “can’t.”

It makes me want to do it all the more.

So when I hear people say you can’t master music in a home studio, I laugh.

Now, there are certainly good reasons to use a third party to master your mixes, but that doesn’t mean it’s impossible to do it on your own.

Sure, it’s difficult.

And there are parts of it that can be really confusing.

But overall the process is quite simple.

Enter Ian Shepherd.

I’ve recommended Ian to you at least a bajillion times in the psat, and today I’m very excited to announce a brand new class he’s launching.

It’s called Home Mastering Masterclass.

You’ve been asking me for a course on mastering for years, but I knew Ian was the right man for the job. With 15+ years of experience as a pro mastering engineer, he knows his stuff.

And he can help you learn how to approach mastering in your own home studio in a way that actually works.

It’s a roughly 2-month class, and the first round of students get in at a STEEP discount.
