17 MASTERING CASE STUDY: SNOWCONE
DEADMAU5 TEACHES ELECTRONIC MUSIC PRODUCTION

The processors should each do one thing as opposed
to having one thing that will do it all for you. It won’t.
— deadmau5

CHAPTER RECAP
When you sit down to do your mastering work, remember, your
track was built out of one eight bar loop then copied, pasted,
and tweaked across the timeline. Focus on mastering your
initial loop first, and your whole track should sound pretty good.

SUBCHAPTERS

Master Chains
▶▶ Parametric EQing
▶▶ Keep an Eye on
Signal Path

NOTES

TAKE IT FURTHER
▶▶ Listen to the track and try to hear what it needs. Does your
bass sound weak at times?—try multiband compressing the
low end. Is one instrument too loud?—try to limit it down, or
carve its main frequencies out with an EQ. What’s important
to remember is that every track needs a different master
chain, with a different array of processors. Here’s the gear that
went into mastering "Snowcone":
▼▼ Fab Filter Linear Phase EQ
▼▼ Waves MStereo expander
▼▼ Xfer Records OTT multiband compressor
▼▼ Fab Filter PRO MB
▼▼ Fab Filter Pro L
▶▶ Joel also uses these plug-ins in the lesson

DEADMAU5 TEACHES ELECTRONIC MUSIC PRODUCTION

ASSIGNMENT
▶▶ Congratulations, you’ve gone through deamau5’s entire
production process! It’s time to put everything you’ve learned in
the studio together. Take a break from watching the class and
focus on producing one finished track using Joel’s methods to
arrange, structure, mix and master it. Go back and rewatch the
studio lesson chapters if you find yourself getting stuck.
