What is mastering?

Mastering is one of the most important parts of the recording process, but far too many artists and producers – whether unknown acts or major stars – have expressed confusion or ambivalence about what it actually means. 

With today’s albums recorded and mixed by various engineers and producers in different studios, it’s crucial for the finished album to sound like one cohesive work. If you put 12 songs on a CD, and every one sounds different, it’s a big problem. You don’t want the listener to have to turn the volume up and down, bring treble or bass up and down as they are listening to the CD. This is where a mastering engineer’s work is invaluable.
