- We asked our friend and professional Mixing Engineer Guido Werner to take our template "Shipwrecked" (which was produced using only Ableton stock effects and Serum) and perform a professional mixing and mastering on it.
- We granted him the freedom to use all his favorite VST Plugins for this purpose. We only had one condition: Record, explain and comment on everything you do while working on this project - and that's exactly what he did.
- Now you have the chance to join in and look over his shoulder - this class is fire!
