In perfect world mastering would amount to a flat transfer. As recorded music shifts to production done in project studios and personal spaces, mixes are often sent off to mastering with any number of difficult issues that were not apparent until heard on full-range, high-resolution monitors. A revised mix is the ideal solution, but revisions are not always possible. This tutorial looks at recurring mix issues and explores mastering approaches made possible by recent advancements in digital audio processing tools. The panel will also explore creative possibilities made available to us via the new tool sets. An issue faced by independent mastering engineers working solo is the limited opportunity for exchanging new ideas and technical solutions. This tutorial is an ideal forum for attendees to discover fresh approaches through demonstrations by a panel of seasoned professional mastering engineers.
