Thats some pretty serious equipment. I will keep adding to mine as I learn more. I have been reading various magazines and checking out stuff in some....



Might try that with one of these songs I am working on. Will have to look into the cost.



I have considered taking some type of online course on mixing and mastering.


Not meant to knock (and sorry if it sounded like that) what you have or are doing and trying to achieve is fine. We all start some where and tbh what you have is a good start and better then when I started smile.gif.

Not at all. I am glad that you took the time to make the post and to talk about your equipment and some of your experiences. I have learned in my 42 years to listen to those that have experience. It does not mean that you follow them blindly but you must listen and learn I would like to hear more anytime. smile.gif
On another note. I was down in the reading room and I opened up my new REC Magazine and the first article I read was titled What is this thing called Mastering? It then when on to talk about many of the things we covered today. I thought about Scanning the article and posting it. smile.gif

if you can try and attend the mastering session for two reasons:

1 - gives you a first had chance to see what is done and to ask questions.

2 - also gives you a chance to see 'high end' mastering equipment. Mastering equipment, in my experience, is pretty hard to come across and demo so if you can get to see lots of mastering grade stuff all at once wink.gif biggrin.gif.


Yes this is very true. It is one thing trying to poke certain settings at home, but if you don't have any contact with real mastering grade gear it can be impossible to try to emulate the process with software plugs or low cost outboard gear.
So the more time you spend seeing how the ME works and go through all the real pro mastering studio gear, you can then use that knowledge to effectively emulate the mastering process at home. The results will be poor considering the fact only plugs are used, but it will still sound ok for demo projects or semi pro use - the kinda thing you can do with home studio.
