Here are a few testiminials from our last seminar June 2014:

Hey Friedemann, I wanted to personally thank you again for putting this seminar together.
I gained a great deal of understanding that I previously didn’t fully understand even coming from
many years of engineering audio.
Mastering is definitely a craft and I am constantly wanting more knowledge to better my abilities.
It was also great to listen to your insight and your conferring with software developers as well.
There is so many software developers making crap with a pretty graphical interface and engineers
are being suckered into buying just to find out the thing sucks!Anyway a big thanks for all you did for us this past week!Also can you send me more info about Supervised Mastering?Best,
