The Tom Salta Masterclass contains a lot of very useful knowledge focusing mostly on subjects that are crucial but often overlooked in similar offerings, such as workflows, tips and tricks you would usually learn from an actual composer apprenticeship. Unlike many tutors out there, Tom is actually a working composer (and a very hard one at that!), so he’s always in touch with the latest developments/trends of the industry, which shows in his videos. Can’t recommend enough!
Leo Voin, Composer
In the 8 hours or so of videos, Tom goes through his process of analysis, understanding and the methodology behind scoring the game Deathloop. Beginning with his in-depth review of the brief and the references he used, he brings us into his mind and pieces together how and why he created the score the way he did.
I was blown away by the amount of detail involved in the arrangements of the musical cues, but also by Tom's focus on having the right sounds be in the right places to let the player know what is going on at the different times within the game. Additionally, I was very impressed with the amount of detail he went into explaining the different in game music for the different levels as well as the individual music for the main characters.
Pablo Wunderlich, Composer

Tom Salta’s Masterclass Series is a must for ANY Composer who’d always wanted to write for Game.
