If you’ve ever been intimidated by mastering in your home studio, you’re not alone.
It’s one of those things you sort of understand but you’re still scared that you might be screwing stuff up.
Luckily, this is a topic that’s popular every so often here at Audio Issues so I’ve got quite few articles for you to read.

In fact, you can win a free seat by competing in this super simple contest he’s set up.
For those of you who don’t know what the Home Mastering Masterclass is, here are the details:
