Take your music from 90% to 100% with a balanced, clean and pro-quality master—without hiring an expensive mastering engineer.
You need to know how to create your own masters.
And no – I don’t just mean slapping on an Ozone preset and calling it a day…
I’m talking about crafting detailed & clean masters that accurately represent your music.
Because if you’re self-releasing – poor or un-mastered music will sound weak and amateur. It’s not finished if it’s not mastered.
Sending to labels? They’ll want the closest thing to a final product as a reference (even if they use an engineer). Plus, they’ll likely be asking you to make changes – not fun if you have to go back to another mastering engineer.
Not to mention that you’re up against an entire industry of producers, many of whom know how to master themselves. And if you’re a DJ, you’ll hear the difference when you mix your track in with the pros… 😭
You need this skillset, otherwise you won’t hit the minimum barrier to quality music.
Yep – it’s another skill to learn. But it’s not a bad thing – it can actually be a HUGE benefit. Because nobody understands your music best except YOU.
Gone are the days where you have to go back and forth between your engineer to get the perfect master. You have the final say on how your music connects with your listeners.
And not to mention, being able to master your own music will make your mixing and production even better.
Plus, being able to quickly churn out great masters when playing WIPs in a DJ set is a huge advantage.
If you can master your own music well, you’ll be well ahead in the music game. Especially if you do it right 👇
For the past 8 years, I’ve learned a lot about what makes a great EDM master that stands up to other tracks (or sounds even better), represents the music well, and ultimately connects with listeners.
If you want to make great music that sounds polished and ready-for-release, you need to understand what makes a great master.
There’s no magic bullet here. It’s just a simple process that you need to follow:
If you repeat these 3 steps, you will become a great self-made mastering engineer.
You’ll finally finish music that you’re proud of AND that your fans with love.
You’ll be able to hit export on your music with no regrets.
And you’ll be a better producer for it.
But, all this is easier said than done…
Not to mention you’re learning mastering on top of mixing, arranging, music theory, songwriting, sound design, drum programming, and a whole bunch of other skills.
Becoming your own mastering engineer isn’t easy. It’s hard work.
But the creative freedom, sonic control and end result all make it 100% worth it.
Trust me – there’s no better feeling than listening to your master alongside your favourite music. And it actually sounds GOOD.
And while it’s not easy, it can be simple. Like any good mastering engineer, you need a system.
Something that can adapt to each song as you master it, yet give you a repeatable set of tools so you know what to do.
A system that’s comprehensive, practical, and delivered by a pro in the industry…
This program isn’t like any other mastering course or tutorial out there – it’s specifically designed for electronic music, delivered by a real mastering engineer (over 3000 projects mastered), and we think it’s the most comprehensive content you’ll find on the web.
It’s also based on a proven system that spares no details – from first listen to final export – ensuring you can consistently craft high-quality masters.
And for the price of mastering for 1-2 songs, you can enrol today for life! 😍
✅ You’ll have practical experience using pro-level reference material from a real mastering engineer
✅ You’ll have your own 100% polished and complete master that you can share with others (and even release)

✅ You’ll have developed your ears to hear frequencies, dynamics, stereo image with good detail
✅ You’ll be able to master your own music to a professional standard (without second-guessing every decision you make)
✅ You’ll understand how to systematize your mastering process so you get a great result every time
You’ll understand why mastering electronic and dance music is completely different from other genres. Skip the unhelpful info about recorded music and get straight into it.
Identify the details in your music that is holding it back. Understand when the best time to use different tools like EQ, compression and saturation is.
Achieve high-quality masters, even if you don’t have the best acoustic treatment or monitoring environment (yep – even if you’re on headphones).
After the dynamics lesson, you’ll know the difference between micro and macro dynamics, and how they can make for a cohesive listening experience.
Stop succumbing to the confusion of compression and know the best way to use it to control dynamics and tone.
Nail your music’s tone by using EQ like a pro mastering engineer. Go beyond simple cuts and boosts and dive deep into the details.
Finally understand the nuance behind this coveted mastering technique, and achieve clean and balanced masters (without over-processing your mixes). Know when and when not to use it.
Add character and life to your masters with subtle saturation techniques (that don’t ruin your songs). Understand what and how saturation is affecting your master.
Learn what most mastering engineers won’t tell you about loudness, and discover the power of controlled clipping for unparalleled loudness.
Give your final master the treatment it deserved with limiting. Achieve a clean master at the appropriate amount of loudness for your style (hint: it’s probably not -14 LUFS).
Discover a lesser-known aspect of mastering that most producers ignore. Control the start and end of your tracks for seamless integration of your music on all platforms and mediums (Spotify, Apple Music, Beatport, CD etc.).

Hello, I’m Nicholas Di Lorenzo! 👋 I am the owner and operator of Panorama Mixing & Mastering in Melbourne, Australia.
I developed as a budding young engineer under the tutelage of Martin Pullan (Deep Purple, Anthony Callea, Jimmy Barnes).
Since opening the studio in 2014, I’ve been involved in over 3,000 projects including for artists such as Tentendo (Majestic Casual), Dugong Jr (Mad Decent, Majestic Casual, Moving Castle) & Ava King.
I’ve also been involved with labels and publishing companies like Universal Music Group, Sony ATV, and Teamwrk Records.
You can listen to a selection of my mastering portfolio below! 👇
Here’s a rundown of the full Mastering For Producers course content:
You still might be unsure whether learning to master is worth it.
After all, can’t you just pay someone the same money and get a pro-sounding master?
Yes – you absolutely can.
But the benefits don’t stop at the end result – learning to master well will feedback into your production.
You’ll understand what the final product needs, so you’ll make better composition, arrangement and mixing decisions earlier in the process.
You’ll be informed and capable of crafting songs that sound good from beginning to end.
And when you’re mastering, you’ll be able to go back and make better mixing decisions.
So this course isn’t just about becoming a mastering engineer – it’s about becoming a better electronic music producer.
All you need is a computer, a copy of a DAW, and headphones (or monitors).
All plugins used inside the course will have free and paid alternatives. If there is a plugin you cannot access, there are similar techniques outlined that you can use instead.
Nope! Although Mastering For Producers is taught in Pro Tools, you can use practically any DAW and still follow along just fine.
The mastering templates include copies for Ableton Live, Pro Tools, FL Studio & Logic Pro X.
A common concern people have when signing up to a course of this size is that they’ll run out of time and fall behind.
That can’t happen with this program as it’s self-paced. You can go through it in a matter of weeks if you’re extremely diligent and have a lot of time, or you can go through it at a slower pace and take it all in. Whether it takes weeks, months, or even years—it doesn’t matter. You’ll always have access to the course material.
The course itself consists of online videos inside our private course platform, split up by walkthroughs and modules.
You’ll also get access to the listening exercises and guidebook to follow along with.
Our students love our courses because they are not designed just like any course out there. We create them with three principles in mind:
Action-based. Not boring. Comprehensive.
Our courses aren’t just videos to be watched – each step encourages you to follow along in your own DAW.
We aren’t just regurgitating a bunch of information – we’re keeping it interesting by helping you develop skills.
And lastly, this isn’t just a few tips thrown together – this course was deliberately designed to give you the full picture when it comes to mastering. We don’t miss any detail, and if you think we did, let us know.
Yep! Our money-back guarantee ensures that if you don’t like the course, we’ll give you 100% of your money back within the first 30 days. No questions asked.
We don’t have any current plans to discount Mastering For Producers in the future.
Let’s be honest though – between now and then you could be killing it, making the tunes you’ve always dreamed of. Or you could be waiting another 3, 6 or 12 months.
If you’re not sure now is the right time, you can take 30 days to go through the course, and if you don’t like it, we’ll give you 100% of your money back in that time frame.
This is a fully comprehensive course that teaches you mastering from the foundations up – step-by-step. It’s also delivered by a pro in the industry, not just anybody.
You won’t find anything this comprehensive just lying around on YouTube – and while you might find a few tips or tricks that we use throughout this course in a tutorials, it won’t provide you with the full picture that makes a great mastering engineer.
After you sign up and complete your payment, you’ll instantly get an email from our course platform with information on how to access the course. Your bonuses will arrive in a separate email within just a few minutes. You can start the course whenever you please.
If you’re new to production, we recommend checking out EDM Foundations instead. If you’ve got the basics down and are looking to expand your skillset, then this is the course for you.
EDM Foundations is designed for beginners. Mastering For Producers is designed for intermediate-to-advanced producers who want full sonic control over their final song.
If you’re interested in general production, choose EDM Foundatons.
If you want better masters for your music, choose Mastering For Producers.
If you’re diving head on into Mastering before you’ve learned mixing, we’d recommend taking Mixing For Producers first.
Mastering will not fix your mixdown problems, which more often than not are 90% of the problem.
Mastering is the final process that takes your final track from 90% to 100%.
In short, no. We’ve designed this course to be purely ‘in-the-box’ so anybody with a computer and a DAW can follow along.
If you have outboard compressors, EQs, limiters etc. – you can feel free to apply the concepts in this course to those devices.
