Jonas Saalbach Bio Pic

Hey PML Community,

I have been a fan of PML, since I found a sample pack on my studio partners computer and absolutely loved the sounds. So I got invited to do a short jam session with the pack on the PML YouTube Channel and your feedback was more than amazing - thank you very much for your kind words, support and motivation to go on!

I always want to explore new fields of creativity and push my own boundaries, so I was not only intrigued, but instantly said YES when the PML guys asked me to record my own Masterclass.

In the process of creating this class, my album “Headlights” was yet unreleased. So I am super happy, that you can now listen to the tracks, then dive into this super in depth session on “Transformation” I have done with Francois. After you know the track inside out you can maybe come and see me play these songs live in a club somewhere around the world (check Radikon for tour dates) - I'd be happy to see all of you!

If you guys got any questions or feedback feel free to hit me up on Instagram and I wish you loads of fun and hope you could learn a thing or two from my class.


Bonus: Mastering

In the process of planning and filming Jonas Saalbach’s Masterclass we got to know Guy - Jonas’ mastering engineer. We decided to record a short walkthrough in the actual mastering file, to give everybody a wholistic picture of the complete production process. Guy walks you through all his EQ, compression, tape saturation settings - in the box and outboard gear and shares valuable tips on really hearing the music instead of only listening.
