Producertech has announced Mastering in the Box with Ableton Live, a video tutorial course from Zeitgeist Mastering.
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.
The course is now available to purchase at Music-Courses.

Dynaudio Professional has announced the release of Choosing by Ear – Practical Loudspeaker and Monitor Systems Evaluation, a paper by Paul Mac, which provides a practical guide to monitor selection by ear.
Choosing the right monitors can be a challenge in any scenario. To choose well from many candidate monitors for their multiple stereo and 5.1 monitor setups, recording studios and broadcast production facilities often conduct blindfold listening tests. They do this to make the best possible decision based entirely on pure audio considerations.
“Monitors must be the most overhyped and least understood part of the audio chain,” says Fred Speckeen, Global Business Manager, Dynaudio Professional. “Paul Mac brings together his own extensive experience and the seminal AES20 standard to this paper, providing a practical approach to selecting monitors via critical listening. Inspired by the fact that monitor selection by systematic blindfold tests is increasingly common at the highest levels of the pro audio industry, this paper covers the issues of listening environment, listening material and the listening process. Buying monitors is one of the most critical and expensive decisions each of us has to make in assembling a studio that’s a joy to work in. We hope that this paper contributes to making that process a success for everyone.”
The paper is available as a free download along with accompanying audio files for stereo and multichannel system configuration.
