Meet Your Instructor – Scott Elliott


I’m Scott from Chernobyl Studios, and I’m just like you: a home studio musician and mixing engineer. From the beginning of my journey, all I ever wanted was to have a big, massive, metal guitar tones and mixes that I could be proud of.

In 2013, I started to study mixing and tone crafting more seriously so I could bring this desire to life. What I didn’t know was that I was venturing into a world of conflicting information and secrecy. Maybe it sounds a bit dramatic, but how many times have you seen a video on YouTube that claimed you could “sound like the pros in minutes,” just to find out they have thousands of dollars in gear and plugins and really didn’t explain anything anyway? These videos never helped me get a better idea of how to create my guitar tones or better mixes.

I wasted money on plugins I didn’t need, followed advice that wasn’t helpful, and made every mistake you can think of multiple times over. 6 years of frustration later and I now know what it takes to create great amazing guitar tones and mixes.

My goal is to sift through the noise, filter out the nonsense, and create content that helps you avoid the years of struggle and frustration that I had to endure.

Frequently Asked Questions


What is the difference between Metal Drum Programming Mastery and Henning Pauly’s Complete Guide to Drum Programming?

Metal Drum Programming Mastery focuses on writing drum parts for death, black, and extreme styles of music while Henning Pauly’s course is focused on overall drum programming techniques for rock music. Also, in this course, Reaper 6 is the main DAW while Henning demonstrates his techniques in Cubase. Henning’s course is fantastic, but if you need to know how to write convincing blast beats, double bass, gravity blasts, and any manner of drum parts for extreme music, Metal Drum Programming Mastery is what you need.

What if I don’t have some of the plugins or instruments used in the training?

Not to worry—all session files are included for you, to include bounced tracks of the orchestra in the situation where you aren’t able to replicate the same sounds. Additionally, all MIDI files are made available to you so that you can experiment with different sounds if you would like to do so.

How can I ask questions or get help with course material?

When you buy the course, you are invited to join a private Facebook and Discord group where you can join hundreds of other course owners and all our instructors to ask any questions you might have and find help. You can even show any progress you are making and ask for feedback!

Which DAW is used in these courses?

Cockos Reaper 6 and Cubase. There are some elements of the course that use functionality found within Reaper, but as long as your DAW has a piano roll and you can write MIDI—you’re good to go.

How is the course delivered?

Once you have bought the course, you can stream it all right from our website on our custom platform that lets you keep track of your progress. But if you rather download the videos for viewing later, you can do that too.
