Mastering In Your DAW

Let’s get one thing out the way: There’s mastering and there’s MASTERING. MASTERING, as in this is a crucial CD for your band, you’re going to duplicate 1,000 copies, you want to blow people away when they hear it (“you only get one chance to make a first impression”), and you don’t want any mistakes. This is when you call in the professional who has done this dance a zillion times before, and will squeeze every last bit of musicality out of your creation. Yeah, you’ll pay — but hopefully, when you look back (and assuming you chose the right mastering engineer, which is a whole other issue), you’ll think it’s the smartest move you ever made.
