Mastering 101: The Complete Beginner’s Guide

Learn the exact process used by professional mastering engineers, laid out in a simple to follow step-by-step framework.


Why I Created This Guide

Mastering is an art-form. No one is born good at mastering. It takes years of training and a good ear – this is why people that do it professionally are referred to as mastering engineers

They’re highly skilled and extremely well paid. And the reason? Mastering music is hard work – it takes skill, knowledge, and practice.

My name is Chris, and if you’re a regular at ELECTRIKJAM, you’ll know who I am and what I’m about. 

I’ve worked in some of the top studios in LA with artists ranging from Katy Perry to KYLESA and Baroness. 

Mastering 101: The Complete Beginner's Guide

This course is the distillation of 20+ years of experience into one, easy to follow document.

Think of it as a shortcut, a way to skip over all the hurdles, pitfalls, and mistakes I made when I was starting out. 

I write, produce, and master songs professionally. Alongside ELECTRIKJAM, this is how I make a living. 

I learned from some of the best mastering engineers in the music industry, cut my teeth working on major record albums during the late-2000s, and finally went out on my own in 2020. 

This guide covers everything that I learnt during this period. It is how I master tracks professional today.

It is literally all you need to take your songs and albums from “demo-quality” to sounding like a major record label release

What You’ll Learn Inside This Guide:

  • You do not need expensive tools to master. This guide shows you how to master your tracks to a professional standard, ready for release on Apple Music, Spotify, CD, and Vinyl using free tools. 
  • You do not need to pay for AI tools. Mastering is an art form and it requires a human ear. You’ll learn exactly how to master and what to look out for when doing it. 
  • From EQ to compression, the guide is laid out in a step-by-step process so you can work through it systematically on every track you master.

After you’ve got some applied experience under your belt, you’ll be good enough to charge for your mastering services – I charge $60 an hour for my time, you could charge the same. 

Your Music. Transformed…

First impressions are everything. With music, even more so. If you want your music to stand out, it needs to be mastered correctly – the different it makes is night and day. 

You can get your songs mastered professionally; this will cost anywhere from $1500 to $10,000 depending on who you use and how many tracks you’re doing. 

Or, for $35.99, you can learn to do it yourself with ELECTRIKJAM’s Mastering 101: The Complete Beginner’s Guide.

Not only that, but once you learn how to master like a pro, you can start charging for your skills. 

Playing in a metal band doesn’t usually pay the bills, not unless you’re at a level like Mastodon, The Haunted, or Periphery. 

But if you can charge $60 to $100 an hour for your mastering services, that’ll go a long ways to paying your bills, allowing you to focus more on your music and do what you love. 

And it sure as shit beats working at Wendy’s too.
