HOME MASTERING - ultimate guide (22 episodes)

Become a master in mastering. In your bedroom.

After more than 20 weeks, the time has finally come for the last installment in our series dedicated to mastering at home. Today we won't be making any miraculous revelations. Instead, we'll give you one final piece of advice, "for the road."

A final word

All along this series, we have tried our best to present, in the most comprehensible way, the basic principles that underpin the delicate art of mastering. However, except for a couple of exceptions, like dithering, for example, all of these “rules” ought to be taken merely as suggestions. It’s up to you to experiment! And, above all, practice, practice, practice! After all, your main advantage in relation to a professional mastering studio is time. Nobody will be yelling at you if you haven’t finished by the end of the day, so make the most of it!

To conclude, we would like to thank you for having followed us throughout this adventure and we sincerely hope that these articles have been useful to you in one way or another.

All of it

For your convenience, here are links to the entire series.

    Thank you, Hanky. :-D Glad it was useful for you. I plan to re-read the whole series myself. I have a project I'm working on that I may try to master myself, and Nantho's articles are full of great advice.
