There has been already much controversy on the topic "analog vs. digital" when it comes to regular use inside the modern studio for mixing and mastering. Not willing to join in that discussion, here is a proposal for a processing-chain entirely conceived inside the digital domain that will deliver on any mastering application needed without the operator "having to do with" or miss anything from the analog world—an entire ITB procedure for common mastering practices for any music genre. Technical explanation of the “workarounds” as done with plug-ins for the common digital shortcomings will be fully explained along with a simple but effective mastering processing chain that is designed to be a template for most studio applications regardless of type of program material.
