About Your Instructor

Guido Werner, founder of Cat and Beats, was born with headphones on his ears, and as soon as he could walk, he started playing the drums.

Having worked in various professional studios, Guido has gained extensive experience in mixing and mastering for artists from around the globe, ranging from emerging talents to established names. One particular skill that sets him apart is his ability to “reverse engineer” songs. He can listen to a track and recreate it from scratch, producing an almost identical replica.

This unique talent makes him an intriguing choice as your engineer, as he can identify what elements are missing or need to be removed. Additionally, Guido is affiliated with mixmasteryou.com, where every mix and master session is recorded on-screen. This allows you to witness the transformation of your project files into a fully polished and ready-to-release song.
