Every once in a while I get asked why I don’t talk about mastering.
I do a little bit, but I tend to focus more on mixing.
The reason is, there’s somebody else who is just so much better at it than me. So I usually let him do the talking.
Next week Ian Shepherd opens up his Home Mastering Masterclass again so I wanted to take the time to show you some great resources on mastering that I’ve done in the past.
