Our blog is and has always been written with the advanced home studio production in mind. One of the hottest topics when it comes to full home productions is will you master it or ship it out? This is why I’m very excited to be interviewing Ian Shepherd next week to hopefully answer some of the questions you may have about it and talk about how his videos and courses can help you efficiently do it in your own studio. I have personally went through the course before and it was absolutely a tremendous help. Over the course of 8 weeks you will receive in depth videos dedicated to certain mastering techniques along with interviews and bonus material. Whatever concerns or issues you may have with tackling a solid home master can be put to rest with this excellent in depth series.
In the mean time if you haven’t checked out Ian’s resourceful website productionadvice.co.uk I highly recommend you do. There are a lot of useful free blogs you can check out along with his course and technique videos such as in depth looks at multi-band compression and mastering EQ. I’ll also add if you purchase the full 8 week course you get invited to a private Facebook group that is super cool and full of great resources. If you’re on a tight budget and want to reach that next level commercial sound from the house you’ve got to check out Ian’s class. Below are several links Ian’s provided me with for purchasing the course or some of his videos. I hope you take a look and decide to pull the trigger because I promise you it will take your productions to the next level!
