Mastering ITB, Outboard or Hybrid?
This is a recording of our live stream on June 11, 2020. Mastering Engineer Piper Payne explored what it takes to make great masters in all workflow scenarios! Full Description The goal of a mastering engineer is to serve the project in the best way possible to achieve a correct sound. Sometimes, great masters are achieved by using lots of different outboard, analog gear, and sometimes it’s only in the box and digital… sometimes it’s a hybrid of both. There is no wrong way to master a song, but there are best practices and things to watch out for that I’d like to share.

Mastering: The Bigger Picture with Michael Romanowski
This video is a recording of our livestream May 28, 2020 Mastering is an essential part of process of releasing music. It is equal parts art and technology. Regardless of how your music is distributed, physical manufacturing or digital distribution, there is a Big Picture perspective that needs to inform your decisions. In this final stage of the engineering, and the art of it, is listening very deeply to “How” is the music presenting itself. Not “What” is the content of the music. In this session, Michael discussed the perspective of mastering, listening, monitoring environment, considerations for release in different formats and more. The “Bigger Picture.” We will be mastering a couple of tracks live to walk through some of the decisions that get made, and talk about the reasons behind them.
