T9 - PREPARING YOUR MIXES FOR MASTERING
Adam Ayan, Gateway Mastering & DVD
Mastering is often described as the final step in the creative process of making a record and the first step in manufacturing. These days, it's common to receive mixes for a project from multiple engineers, producers, and studios—in multiple formats. The job of the mastering engineer is to bring the mixes to their fullest musical potential and combine all of these sources into a cohesive-sounding album. To do that, it's vital that all source mixes are clearly labeled and that all source media and mastering notes are well organized. This tutorial will cover all facets of preparing mixes for mastering, from technical and organizational aspects to final creative and musical mix decisions.
