Mastering Stylebook Vol 1

Black Friday Get 50% OFF



This is the first volume of Friedemann Tischmeyer's new series of videos.

To further the tradition of his "Internal Mixing" series, Tischmeyer takes his meticulous approach to explaining the art of sound by deconstructing the mastering process of an acoustic pop song by Banda Magda, originally mixed by Fab Dupont.

He describes the chain of processes he uses in minute details and gives tips on how to choose and setup your processing for your own mastering sessions.

This in-the-box journey will give you insights on the mastering frame of mind, and ideas on how to correct, enhance, and get the most out of a mix in order to create a final product.

This is the first installment of a multipart series to be published in the coming months.

For mastering, it's a great reference! Thanks for all your knowledge

Hey guys you need to understand that these videos are not supposed to teach you everything I don't regard these as full courses so don't blame the teachers for anything. Consider them like a series you're following on Netflix... you can't expect Thomas Shelby to teach you how to become a Mafia Boss on Netflix?? and this is the same thing.

I am a senior, about to graduate with a BM in Commercial Composition/Arranging, in Los Angeles. I know quite a bit...but there is also still MUCH for me to learn. The "Mixing" video Mick Guzauski did of A. Suleiman's song was astoundingly informative (and done in Pro Tools). I don't see much benefit to learning about plugins that do not work on a Mac. (???) This video was very difficult for me to follow. I think you would need to know a LOT about mastering before this video would make any sense to you. I am still trying to figure out the difference between "mixing," and "mastering." ??

Great video. P.S. Sonnox Limiter AAX PT 11 version now has an option to act as a True Peak Limiter .

Very transparent and fast tutorial. I wonder why I paid 12 USD for this when all these "details" that are already FREE in all YouTube or Dave Pensado's ITLs … ?!? ;(

I think there is plenty of "basics" out there, what I like on Puremix is that it goes onto another level, for more advanced instruction.

Hello Puremix , To be honest I was a bit lost until I downloaded the unmastered track and realised that the audio quality of the video was far from the quality Friedemann worked with. Is there an HD version of this video that can be viewed ..? Also can you all have the final master available for download? If it's possible . Best.

Superb! Learned a lot.

Nice video, have been mastering for almost 10 years now but always nice to see someone else's workflow. To me it wasn't too fast at all, although this is partly probably down to prior experience.

2014 May 04
You can have the translation in Italian too. Thanks

Regarding too fast: The aim of this new series is to provide case studies and NOT to teach mastering from scratch. For basic mastering studies I have produced a 9h audio mastering video or offer the Mastering Academy courses. My desire is to deliver mastering processing samples of different genres with different tools. In the future I am going to vary the used plug-in and gear brands in order to provide a broad case study collection. Have fun watching, Friedemann

Really enjoyed this one! Very straight forward and useful - one my favorites thus far!

Too fast… Probably a more accurate description on why Friedemann choose those settings instead to limit to an A/B comparison could be more useful for the viewers… Don't you?
