Class Info


Good sounds are rarities, things that make your ears pop up when you hear it for the first time, something unexpected. [SOUND PULSING] [MOUSE CLICKING] Part of being original, part of having a sound, is being able to create music, or effects, or processes that can't be recreated. That's what makes you unique. This class is just a good primer for anyone wanting to get involved more actively into the production of electronic music. The way that I communicate ideas might not be super anecdotal, or-- I don't know-- funny, or helpful. Because I'll tell you right now, I'm pretty socially inept as is. And I'm just going to go through my methodology of what I think when I'm creating melodies, or how I work when I'm systematically producing music. I'm not really afraid of giving away some arcane knowledge about my creation techniques. Because this is more designed for you to develop your own, as opposed to just straight up ripping me. I would be pretty thrilled to know that at least one person took one thing away from us, which is pretty much what I hope people take away from my music, is kind of what I do it. And you have to think that if you can impact one person with your music, then it is pretty much worth it, I think, and that you are definitely doing something positive. This is deadmau5. And this is my MasterClass.

Make better music

Before he was deadmau5, all Joel wanted for Christmas was old toasters to take apart. Now, in his MasterClass, watch him take his music apart. Joel teaches you how he approaches melodies, mixing and mastering to make unique sounds you can’t find in a cookie cutter sample pack. You’ll get not only his lessons, you’ll learn how to create your own music without spending money on million dollar gear.

Watch, listen, and learn as deadmau5 teaches you how to mix, master and market your music.

A downloadable workbook accompanies your class with lesson recaps and supplemental materials.
