Great Intro to T-Racks and Mastering
I have T-Racks Custom Shop but I'm uncertain which modules to purchase. This tutorial gave me a better understanding of many of them and some I had not considered. In addition, I received an excellent tutorial about mastering techniques. I appreciated the honesty about modern mastering techniques that do not always provide the best listening experience.

Great mastering course
When I saw this course I thought it would be a "how to use T-Racks" course. But I was pleasantly surprised when I saw that not only it's full of that, but it is even more a real mastering course that can help you get more of T-Racks or even any other tools you use for mastering.
