If you’re a musician or engineer who wants to make sure the tracks you release are top notch, The Ultimate Mastering Formula will give you the exact steps to turn your mixes, into world-class professional masters…
(without having to buy a bunch of expensive equipment or spend years in sound school.)
I’ve got a question for you…
How much time have you spent writing, recording and mixing your tracks?
I’m going to take a guess here and say: – ‘A LOT’.
Just by the fact that you’re reading this and looking to improve your sound, I know that you’re serious about your music, and you’ve put a LOT of time and effort into making it sound as good as possible.
…And I bet you’ve found it pretty tough right?
How do I know?
Because I’ve spent the last 10 YEARS of my life devoted to figuring out how to produce WORLD-CLASS sounding tracks.
And yes, it was TOUGH.
But long story short, I want to SAVE you the trouble, endless trial and error, and frustration that I went through trying to figure this stuff out for myself.
That’s the reason I spent the last solid 6 months putting together ‘The Ultimate Mastering Formula’.
Why did I put together a mastering course instead of recording or mixing?
Because even if you don’t quite get the recording or mix right, mastering is that ESSENTIAL final step that can make the crucial difference between people enjoying your music, or passing it off as some ‘cheap demo’.
Simply put, mastering isn’t ‘optional’, your tracks HAVE to be mastered PROPERLY before you release them to the world.
Now I don’t know whether this program is right for you –only you know that.
So I put this page together to give you everything you need to know to decide.
I know it’s pretty looong, but I wanted to make sure that you have ALL the facts before going ahead.
And just like my video’s and books, I like to make things as SIMPLE as possible.
So there’s 4 main questions that I think you need to answer for yourself BEFORE you decide whether this program is right for you or not:
1. What can The Ultimate Mastering Formula do for me?
2. What’s included in the program?
3. Will this system work for ME and MY music?
4. What guarantee do I have that this will work for me?
This page will help you answer these questions, and if you decide you’re ready to take your music to a new level, you can order The Ultimate Mastering Formula at the bottom of this page.
Just wanted to say that the ultimate mastering formula is awesome. I’ve been trying to learn mixing/master for the past year and have read/watched many tutorials, but now I feel like I’m finally getting a great understanding on mastering. The way you explain everything in detail really helps to understand the material.”
How The Ultimate Mastering Formula can help you.
If I had to just ‘sum up’ mastering, and what The Ultimate Mastering Formula can do for you and your music, this would be it…
If you’re a musician producing your own tracks, or an engineer who wants to ‘upgrade your skills, The Ultimate Mastering Formula is a simple system that will give you the exact steps to turn your mixes into world-class commercial quality masters – without buying expensive equipment or wasting years (and a LOT of money) at sound school.
By now I’m sure you’ve seen my ‘How To Master A Song’ Video and eBook, well The Ultimate Mastering Formula is the COMPLETE system – with ALL the details you need to go from scratch, to ‘MASTER’ (no pun in intended).
“Your potential fans decide whether they like a song, or hate it, within the FIRST FEW SECONDS.”
Here’s the thing, I know you want to focus on making MUSIC, not worry about all this ‘sound stuff’.
However, I’m sure by now you’ve figured out that how your music SOUNDS is just as important as the the songs themselves.
If it sounds terrible, people AUTOMATICALLY assume the SONG is terrible –and won’t even give it a second chance.
We live in a world where the ‘clutter factor’ is rising everyday, and people are relying more and more on first impressions to make snap judgments.
Never in history have more ‘books been judged by their covers’.
And your music is being judged in the same way.
Your potential fans decide whether they like a song, or hate it, within the FIRST FEW SECONDS.
The FIRST IMPRESSION has NEVER been more important than right now.
And when it comes to music, MASTERING is the critical final step in making a GREAT first impression.
I can tell you first hand, the ONE thing that made the BIGGEST difference to the quality of my tracks was NOT a mic, NOT a piece of gear, NOT some fancy software. It was learning the SKILLS.
“I can tell you first hand, the ONE thing that made the BIGGEST difference to the quality of my tracks was NOT a mic, NOT a piece of gear, NOT some fancy software. It was learning the SKILLS.”

I want to share with you that I purchased a home recording tutorial about two weeks ago for $99, and I purchased another about a month ago for $197, and your course is so simple and easy to understand, it is packed with useful information, that after two hours into it, I’ve already learned more than I’ve learned from the last two programs I purchased combined. I’ve invested upwards of $2000 chasing after “the” home recording course that promises to take you from idea to finished product, sadly most of it is hype and repetition, and I wish I had discovered you earlier. Please keep up the excellent work you are doing. There are many of us who need what you offer.
Watch this video to see what’s inside the program.
Hey Rob, I just wanted to let you know, you might not remember me, but I bought your Ultimate mastering formula course over a year ago. And it’s still proving an incredible source of reference today! As I’m working on my first feature film (film composer), it’s incredibly helpful.”
Get The Ultimate Mastering Formula and start transforming your tracks today.
With everything in life there’s always some risk involved… but often the biggest risk that we don’t consider, is the risk of NOT doing something.
So let me ask you this – are your masters really going to improve on their own?
6 Months down the line – are you still frustrated that you’re not getting the results that you want?
On the flip side, think about yourself a couple of months down the line after having invested in getting this skill – what does it feel like to know that all the tracks you work on are finally being properly mastered and sound great?
How does it feel to have this skill as a part of your music-producing arsenal, and KNOW that you can get the results?
Can you really put a price on knowing that every song that you’ve put SO MUCH work into, will be properly mastered and sound great no matter what system it’s played on, and for every fan who listens to it?
“Can you really put a price on knowing that every song that you’ve put SO MUCH work into, will be properly mastered and sound great no matter what system it’s played on, and for every fan who listens to it?”
I’m not trying to do some weird “psycho-voodoo” on you here, I’m seriously asking you to think about this, and consider the path that each option leads down.
If this does what I say it does, I think you’ll find that it’s a priceless skill.
Bottom line is, I don’t know if this is right for you, only you know that. But if it IS right for you, I don’t want anything to get in the way of you giving this a fair shot, and taking your music to a new level.
I remember VERY clearly what it was like to be frustrated and fed up with NOT being able to achieve the sound that I could hear and imagine in my head – You know what I mean.
I don’t want you to have to go through that, so if you decide to make this investment, I want you to know that it’s a ‘safe bet’ and you really can’t lose.
If you’re sitting on the fence, you don’t have to make the decision now, you’ve got 60 days to try out the program and hear the results for yourself, and if for any reason you’re not totally happy with it, just send me an email and I’ll refund you right away – no problem, no hassles… and you can even keep the program as my way of saying “thanks for giving it a chance”. Either way, you can’t lose.
So if you’re ready to take your masers to the next level, now’s your chance.

$297 Now just $197
To be honest I was skeptical when I first stumbled across your website. I took a chance on your music production courses, turned out to be the BEST $600 I’ve ever spent in my life :)
Your tutorials are amazing. In less than 2 weeks of watching the videos, my audio went from absolutely awful to pretty decent. And this is coming from someone who knew nothing about music production before watching your tutorials.
I love the way you explains things, giving specific examples e.g. set the attack time to ~ 10ms or take out -3dB at 100Hz etc. Whereas most of the guys on youtube would say “Turn the knobs until it sounds good” which really isn’t helpful at all.
Investing money in your programs is easily one of the best things I’ve done in my life. I’ve been songwriting for 16 years and have been wanting to record my own music for years. Now I can. Thanks Rob, you’re Amazing!
I went through a lot of free tutorials on YouTube and even bought some random mixing and mastering programs. But they just scratched the surface – Good for beginners, bad for advanced persons.
Then I came across Rob Williams on YouTube. I saw his “HOW TO MASTER A SONG” video and it caught me off guard! I’ve never seen someone explaining difficult things in such an easy way. After watching the video I tried to apply these 7 steps on my mix and I was overwhelmed by the result. My mix got clearer, louder and fatter … instantly!
Bottom line: If you want to make improvements, just buy one of Rob’s programs. You won’t be disappointed! Period.
I want to share with you that I purchased a home recording tutorial about two weeks ago for $99, and I purchased another about a month ago for $197, and your course is so simple and easy to understand, it is packed with useful information, that after two hours into it, I’ve already learned more than I’ve learned from the last two programs I purchased combined.

The formula is excellent, his explanations leave no room for doubt, my work has improved 100%, this product is worth every penny, thanks!”

Still have questions?
What’s included in the program?
In the video further up this page I show you everything that’s inside the program.
Basically, the program consists of videos and PDF’s guiding you through the entire mastering process step by step.
From WHAT mastering is, to WHY we need master tracks, to exactly HOW to master your tracks – you’re going to learn it all.
I’ve included over 13 HOURS of practical HD videos to guide you through the process step by step.
There’s also summary PDF’s to make it easy for you to scan over the key points and recap all the most important ideas in just a few minutes.
If you haven’t yet, scroll up and check out the video, it’s all in there :)
Is this a virtual or physical product?
It’s online / download only – as much as I’d love to make a physical product available, the logistics would push the cost up far too high to make it viable.
You have the option of accessing the program online from your members area, and / or downloading it to your computer.
How big is the download?
If you’d like to download the entire program, it’s about 8GB.
Remember, you can access the program immediately from your members area and stream the videos to just about any modern phone, tablet, or computer connected to the net.
Do I need to own any special equipment or expensive gear for this to work?
Although great gear always helps, the whole point of The Ultimate Mastering Formula is to get you professional results WITHOUT spending thousands on gear, acoustics, or software.
The one thing that I do insist on, is that you need a set of monitors.
They certainly don’t need to be anything fancy, but if you’re trying to master your music using your grandfather’s HiFi speakers from the 40′s, it’s not going to be easy.
Has this system worked for OTHER people besides you?
With all the ‘hype’ surrounding things these days, I wouldn’t be surprised if you’re a little skeptical right now – I know I would be.
You may be thinking: “Well sure, this works for you, but will it get ME the results – I don’t have expensive equipment and I haven’t studied sound engineering”
It’s a fair question of course.
The answer is yes. I know this system will work for you because of the countless success stories I’ve received over the years. Just take a look at some of the testimonials listed further up this page.
If the download fails for some reason can I download it again?
NO, tough luck buddy!
– Kidding! Seriously, I get this question all the time – You have access to the videos and PDF’s from you members area and can log in and view them anytime.. If you have any trouble with the download you can just email me and I’ll send you some backup links.
What if I get stuck or there’s something that I don’t understand?
I’ve put an incredible amount of time into planning and producing my programs to make sure that they are VERY straight forward and explain everything in great detail. However, if you get stuck or are confused by something, you can always email me.
Will this work for my STYLE of music?
I’ve gotten this question MANY times, in MANY different forms…
Will this work for Hip Hop? – Yes
Will this work for Indie music? – Yes
Will this work for hippie music? – Totally man
Will this work for Trance? – Yes
Will this work for Rock? – Yes
Will this work for New Age Music? -Yes
Will this work for Death Metal? Hell yeah!
Will this work for Traditional Armish Music mixed with Irish Clay Dancing and a touch of the Spice Girls? – Hopefully not
…but for everything else –
The reason I call this a ‘formula’, is because it can be applied in any situation and to any style of music.
The principles and techniques are UNIVERSAL – The program will show you how to adapt them to whatever situation or style you work on.
I also use various styles of music in the Live Mastering Sessions module, so you’ll get to see how the system works on different styles.
Do I need to have a lot of experience or have studied sound engineering in order to understand this?
I’ve specifically designed this course to cover EVERYTHING you need to know to take your mixes and master them effectively.
Of course, any experience that you do have, will just make the learning process that much quicker and easier.
As you’ve probably picked up by now, I LIKE THINGS SIMPLE.
The reason is because this is how I THINK.
For me to understand something, I have to simplify it to it’s lowest common denominator, and so that’s what I’ve done here with The Ultimate Mastering Formula.
