I have actually seen an engineer tweaking and tweaking, for about ten minutes, the channel next to the one he thought he was adjusting. Several times throughout he would say "Now, we're talking. Sounding better." Lol #recordingstudio #musicproduction #studio #audioengineer #audioengineering #mixing #mastering #recording #production #producer #producers #musicproducer
I'll make this as quick as I can so you can get back to making great music. Have you ever finished a mix that seemed to have tons of energy and excitement in the studio but when it returned from mastering and you cranked it up loud to hear your musical masterpiece it seemed to have lost some life?
This could be because of the mastering job squishing it to death. HOWEVER, before you go blaming the mastering guy check your unmastered mix at a very loud volume. If it is still
