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.

Psychic Modulation has released version 1.4 of its Phonec synthesizer instrument for Windows.
Phonec is best described as an ‘analog flux synthesizer’. Inspired by the mystique of video logo synth scores from worn out VHS tapes, Phonec was primarily designed with character in mind.
However Phonec is capable of producing a wide range of sounds such as vintage analogue tones, lo-fi synthscapes, ethereal pads, minimal techno sequences, and synthwave leads and basses.
Changes in Phonec v1.4
- Overall sound improvements.
- New Pulse Width oscillator modes.
- Added new switch for retriggering the oscillator phase on each note; produces a much more solid sound; excellent for outrun style basslines.
- New LFO & envelope targets: Filter attack/decay & pulse width.
- Added invert switches to mod envelopes.
- Sub Oscillator can now switch to square wave; produces a much fatter sound than sine.
Phonec for Windows (VST) is available to purchase for $39 USD.
