Mastering is the crucial and final step of the audio production process. This is the last chance you have to carefully listen, tweak and make final adjustments to the audio before sharing it with the world. In this 23-tutorial course, mastering engineer Joe Albano takes you through this all-important stage and reveals everything you need to know to master "in the box" with Logic Pro X.
Joe starts the course with a brief history on the evolution of mastering. After giving an overview of the mastering basics, Joe takes an in-depth look at the various mastering tools included in Logic. You learn about the different EQs (Channel, Linear Phase & Match EQs, as well as all the vintage models). You learn how to use dynamics processors for mastering, including the different Compressor models, the somewhat intimidating Multipressor, and Logic's limiters. Of course, Logic's metering tools (Spectrum Analyzer, Goniometer, Loudness Meter, the Correlation Meter) are also covered in detail, and you learn how they are used to fix phase and frequency issues. Optional processing (such as exciters, reverbs, and M/S processing) are also covered. Finally, the course ends with a typical mastering session where you are shown different mastering workflows and strategies.
So now is the time to learn the art and science of mastering using Logic Pro X in this course by Logic and audio expert Joe Albano!

Thanks for a great course Joe! The videos on metering, standards and workflow were very useful. It would be great to see a follow up with some more indepth info on the use of the multipressor as a dynamic EQ, for example. I never know what I'm doing with that plug-in :)

This is the 2nd time I've watched this, the first was a good introduction to the tools the second even better for understanding of their application (I was fairly new to all this the first time). Although I now use some non-Logic plugins, this is an absolute 'go to' for Logic Pro X and the principles apply whatever the extras. I've always found Joe's courses are always valuable on any topic (check out his dedicated course on mid-side processing), and I like his presentation style, so once again - thanks Joe!

If you use Logic and the tools provided by Logic for mastering, this course will help solidify and expand your knowledge of what Logic offers. There are nuggets of information and tips that should help expand your ability to get the most you can out of Logicâ€™s mastering tools.

Another great course by Joe Albano who is one of my favourite instructors at MPV. Joe provides a nicely detailed explanation of the basics of mastering and demonstrates how all the tools you need have been provided in Logic Pro X, for those who use that DAW. For users of other DAW's the principals will still apply...you just need to use the corresponding tools in your particular software. A very well done course!!
