WITH MUSIC PRODUCTION,
WHAT'S WAITING FOR YOU
INSIDE THE COURSE...
Mastering and mixing require two completely different approaches. In this lesson, Streaky will guide you on how to approach each and what is the best way to listen and think during a mastering session to achieve high-quality results.
With over 25 years of experience in mastering dance music, Streaky has honed his knowledge of the specific requirements for streaming services, clubs, and small speakers. Streaky is passionate about dance music and has a keen ear for emerging trends.
LOUDNESS RMS/LUFS & MARKET RESEARCH
Knowing how to measure loudness correctly is essential. In this lesson, Streaky provides techniques not only for achieving high levels on the meters, but also for achieving perceived loudness.
Streaky also shows you the levels your competition is achieving, and how you can achieve the same or better results without losing dynamics or crushing the mix.
THE STREAKY METHOD: SYSTEM & TEMPLATES
The Streaky Mastering Method has been crafted through Streaky working daily as an in-demand mastering engineer for many years. The goal is to achieve consistent sound quality and speed in delivering tracks to meet last-minute record label deadlines.
This is accomplished through a template that provides a system where you don't have to spend all your time setting up but rather you can focus on the sound itself. This lesson teaches you the Streaky Mastering Method and provides you with the same template to use in your DAW!
GAIN STAGING &
Limiters are an essential component of mastering dance music. They help control the peaks of a mix and allow you to push the overall level of your track while still preserving dynamics.
In this lesson, Streaky shares his favourite limiters and provides detailed instructions on how to use them effectively.
Additionally, he covers gain staging techniques that ensure your mix stays clean and dynamic, even when processing heavily through limiters.
WORKING WITH FREQUENCIES IN MIND
In addition to considering the instrument sounds, balance and feel, it's important to focus on frequency areas when mastering. The low end can be particularly challenging for dance music, but Streaky will teach you how to manipulate it for tightness while maintaining depth and feel.
Mids are also crucial, yet often overlooked in this genre, they are where you can add hidden weight which is essential on smaller speakers. Adding top-end EQ to your hats etc can sometimes just thin out the mix.
You'll learn how you can achieve a posh and open sound without taking a razor blade to your eardrums... Unless, of course, that's what you're after!
