I Can Make My OWN Songs Loud, Why Do I Need Mastering??

Postby Montgomery » Sat Jul 08, 2017 3:14 pm

ok this is probably something that has been said a million times: dont master yourself! But i mix like a pro and once i send it to my finalizer the mix loud and great. So why on earth do i need mastering you guys??

Just being honestly curious.

    Jim. Of course you can make your own mixes loud but keep in mind that if you're releasing your song and expect thousands of downloads, you'll be making a serious mistake since most likely you don't have the expertise to master a song (and neither the room or tools, etc) like an experienced mastering engineer to present a song at its best light.

    That said, inserting a peak limiter into the 2 buss is not mastering.
