Mastering Explained: If you’ve never understood why mastering makes a difference to your mix (besides making everything louder), here’s a great post by Chris Graham that describes how it works. Chris is mastering my band’s album. Previously, I’ve given him some sub-par mixes in my first few years of recording and they’ve always come back sounding better than what I gave him. Looking forward to hearing my latest batch of songs with his added touch. Visit Chris Graham Mastering for more examples.
