Does Your Music Stack Up to The Pros?
I want to let you in on a secret, and it's one of the most valuable things that I've learned over the past two decades of making music.
The secret isn't some special plugin or VST that magically makes hit records. No, the secret is that everyone is capable of making great music. But this secret comes with a dirty truth -- not everyone does make great music.
What separates the complete newbies from the "virtuoso" players is often the influences and thought patterns that they allow into their life
Look, Alex Rodriguez didn't become one of the best baseball players overnight. He didn't come out of the womb ready to knock 95MPH fastballs out of the park.
Instead, he improved his craft by training with top level coaches and competing against top level players. Day by day, he got better at his craft until he became known as one of the greats.
Surrounding himself with positive influences who forced him to evaluate his actions and improve himself forced A-Rod to become a better baseball player.
If you want to get better at making music, then you have to train like A-Rod!

Here's Just A Portion Of What You'll Learn
Are you disappointed with your music when you hear it come out of the speakers?
I've been there.
For years, it felt like I was just adding plugins that everyone else was using, but my mixes were getting worse!
I tried everything, buying fancy EQ plugins, testing different compressors, I even tried copying the settings of A-List engineers hoping that it would magically make my mix sound better.
It's not because you're a failure, or you just "don't have the talent".
That's complete B.S.
If you have the drive to learn a DAW and start making music, no matter how "good" or "bad" you are, then you have the drive to improve and become an absolute MASTR who never runs out of music to proudly show off.
My brother and I started MASTR seven years ago. Before that, we were touring musicians, bouncing around New England and honing our skills. We got degrees in music, and have obsessed over just about ever genre of music that's ever been invented, from the performance side, and the mixing side.
Take it from us: it's not your gear, your job, your money, or your computer that's holding you back. It boils down to your mixes and your education.
In hindsight, it seems SO obvious why my music wasn't "major league". And no, it didn't have anything to do with my plugins, my VSTs or my gear. The quality of my music boiled down to how well I could transmute a FEELING into a song. Easier said than done.
Making Music With A New Mindset
When I started to work with bigger artists and people who had been making music for decades, I started to realize something about their workflow.
They didn't have some magical template that they dragged sounds into.
They didn't have a pre-saved drum kit that always matches the song.
That's just not what the top musicians focus on.
What they DO focus on, is the feeling, the unique energy that lives within every great song.
What Makes This Book Different?
The concept of transmuting a feeling was at the front of my mind over the 6 month writing process for Secrets of the DAW. I've read plenty of audio production books in the past, and none of them got much further than explaining basic EQ and compression knowledge. Sure, I might have picked up a tip or two here and there, but nothing really changed about the way I made music.
If anything, it got me more frustrated because I was copying settings and my stuff still didn't sound the way that I wanted it to.
My intention with this book was not to make another one of these typical books.
So...if you're ready...and if you'll allow me...I'd like to introduce you to my magnum opus.
