As we enter our last day of the CDR X Roundhouse production workshops anticipation is high and the room is abuzz with creativity.

To help putting those finishing touches on their tracks, our participants entered into the final of their masterclasses with John Flynn from Balance Mastering. This was one of the most anticipated of all, as our participants had yet to think about mastering for physical formats.

John went over the basics of mastering discussing the what and how, while also giving a step-by-step guide on setting up reference tracks in Ableton. After the masterclass John spent time with each participant helping them get their creations ready for their final master, which will be debuted on Saturday at the CDR X Roundhouse Rising event.

We want to send a big shout out to the Roundhouse for having us involved in this year’s festival, and we can’t wait to get down tomorrow night.
