Top mastering engineer's review...

"Hello David

I have always believed that one is never too old to learn something new. I purchased your material because it appeared that you have a real passion for your craft as do I.

I thought your tutorials were well written and easily understood. The area that I read where you stated that you were mastering a project for an individual over a three year period was priceless. I was easily able to relate to your dilemma of constantly improving your craft and the need to go back and redo the previous masters because you were constantly learning and becoming more proficient.

There is plenty of business to go around so I support my fellow mastering engineers who appear to be honorable.

Both of your books were a breath of fresh air and I will be sure to tell others who are getting started in this wonderful field to purchase your books.

Fantastic book for both the beginner and anyone whose been mastering for a while. The proof's in the pudding and my masters are now sounding better than I ever expected. Very easy to read yet packed full of information. This book takes you through the whole process from start to finish, even covering things like how to acoustically treat your home studio. Every explanation is detailed yet easy to digest. Anyone operating from a home studio must read this book.Yes definitely i would recommend that to a friend!
I am very happy with my purchase! THANKS!!!

I found this to be a great resource while trying to get my head around the mysterious subject that is Audio Mastering. David’s clear and concise explanations of processing techniques, that are also supported by videos on TGMaudio’s Mastering Tuition website is great for demystifying the dark art of the subject. I can hear the difference in my mastering projects and will continue to use the guidance given by David, but practice makes perfect. I would recommend this book to both new both new starters in the world of audio as well as seasoned engineers as you are sure too learn new techniques or understand the reasons why you get certain results.

Steven Bury (United Kingdom)

Absolutely brilliant book. The techniques in this book are priceless. I like the way the book is laid out and written, really easy to read and understand. Anyone who just wants to know pure technique on how to get their masters sounding professional should read this book.

I absolutely love this book. Any one interested in advancing their mastering and mixing skills should read this book. Next book to read is Mastering audio the science and art of mastering by Bob Katz.
