Good news –

Thousands of people are getting pumped about this masterclass – my inbox has been blowing up with questions
Here are the new details you’ll want to know:
- How will the Drum & Bass Masterclass be delivered?
Via five weekly LIVE web classes in a webinar room. You’ll see Joe’s computer screen and hear him teaching his newest techniques in real time, building a track from the ground up.
This video explains it pretty concisely:
- What are the advantages of a live web class?
You can get Joe’s insider secrets to your questions as he produces in front of your eyes. It’s like sitting in the studio with a world class producer while enjoying the comfort of your own home –
No need to need to catch the bus to a studio or blow thousands to fly to the tropics of the UK…
You’ll have time to practice your new discoveries each week to solidify your skills. You’ll get feedback directly from Joe on how to improve your track in Week Five.
Even if you miss a session, or part of one, you’ll get your own download of the recording.
- How long will each live web class last?
Each session will be three hours long. There’ll be five live classes totalling 15 hours of live coaching.
- Who can enrol in this masterclass?
Anyone who takes action quickly when enrolment opens will be able to attend.
We have to be strict on group size so that each student has plenty of chances to ask questions to Joe Ford directly
- When are the sessions?
The first session starts on Sunday June 3rd at 6pm UK time. That’s 1pm Eastern, 10am Pacific.

There’ll be one web class every Sunday at the same time for five Sundays in total.
- What’s included with this Masterclass?
- 15 hours of live coaching by Joe Ford
- Ask questions, get answers
- Recordings of each web class session (lifelong ownership)
- The Ableton Live project file from each web class
- Optional weekly assignments
- Joe Ford’s personal critique of your track or work-in-progress in week five
- How do I enrol in the masterclass?
When enrolment opens, you’ll receive an email from me with a link to the course info page.
You can complete your order online using our secure web page.
- I don’t live in the UK. How do the videos work? Can I watch them back at a later time?
You’ll be able to download them to keep forever. You can watch them at your own pace on any device without an internet connection.
- Which Digital Audio Workstation will Joe Ford be teaching with?
Ableton Live 10. But if you use a different DAW, don’t let that stop you from discovering the best-kept secrets of a chart-topping pro.
Most DAWs these days are very powerful. You can do almost anything in any DAW that you can do with Ableton Live. So don’t worry.
- What other 3rd party synths will he be using?
Only the most commonly used ones – Serum and Massive.
Possibly some FabFilter plugins (Pro-Q 2 EQ unit, Pro-L limiter) and iZotope Trash 2.
- What skill level is this for?
Intermediate or advanced. If you’re a beginner, you’ll need to pay close attention to keep up.
It doesn’t matter how advanced you are – There are several very well known producers who can’t wait to attend this masterclass.
If you think you can’t learn anything new from a guy whose album has just smashed #1 on the BeatPort Drum & Bass Charts, this isn’t for you.
- Is this only suitable for Drum & Bass Producers?
It’s for anyone who loves bass heavy music. The techniques you’ll uncover can be used to produce many different styles and tempos of music.
Joe Ford’s recent #1 album Colours In Sound features tracks like Enemy, which is more similar to electronic hip hop or glitch hop than drum & bass.
- Do I have to do the weekly assignments?
Weekly assignments are optional – you can practice your new discoveries, or don’t.
You can send in anything you like to get feedback from Joe in week five – a 4-bar loop, a work-in-progress, or a completely finished track.
Put in as much or as little time as you like. The more effort you put in, the bigger results you’ll get from this.
- What if I miss part of a web class or I can’t attend a session?
You’ll get the recording of each live web class within 72 hours of it being recorded. You’ll also get that week’s project file to dissect.
You can learn at your own pace, even if you miss a live workshop or want to re-watch parts of it.
You’ll have lifelong access to all video recordings and all Ableton Live project files from each week’s web class.
- Is there a guarantee?
Yes. We guarantee you’ll uncover the newest ways to make cutting edge bass music from a chart-topping producer, which will change the way you make music forever.
If you’re not happy after the first session, you’ll have 72 hours to request a refund.
- Do I need a mic to ask questions to Joe?
No need for a microphone. You can ask questions via live chat box. All you need is a computer with an internet connection and a good pair of headphones or monitor speakers.
- Who this is for? Who is it not for?
This is for passionate producers and “aggressive learner” types who are serious about upping their game this year.
It’s not for “flakes” and “floozies” who aren’t really interested in making next-level music.
- Is this masterclass sub-genre specific?
You’ll be witnessing Joe Ford’s unique style of drum and bass being made in front of your eyes.
Joe’s style transcends sub genres. It’s not going to be pure “neurofunk”, or super “jump-up”, or 100% “liquid funk”.
It’s gonna be the Joe Ford style of DnB, which conjures up influences from across the drum & bass spectrum and outside of it.
- How much will it cost to enrol?
To be revealed when enrolment opens. Stay tuned…
- Where can I see a detailed outline of the course syllabus?
I hope it helps you make an informed decision when the doors open.
Hope to see you in the masterclass!
