    Great information as always, damn I love this community! ….. Also I have already gone through Ian’s Home Mastering Masterclass and while the class is not as interactive or communal as PLAPA, there is a wealth of fantastic knowledge which has most certainly helped me understand the mastering process and become better at it. If you are keen to improve your mastering then I recommend it. 🙂

    Thanks Warren & Ian. In my case Mastering Engineers have no fear of loosing business, have always found my forays rather lacking, the big issue of not being able to detach, possibly, not the right personality? I’ve tried refrencing from projects I have had mastered, (Rick O’Neil -Turtle Rock)
    Mastering engineers (good ones) seem to understand nuance rather better than I. Long Live Good Mastering engineers. p.s. When reading about who is recording where etc Mastering places seem to have continual work. May be thats the go, if you have a talent for mastering, you may be in a reliable long term industry. Cheers All.

      Hi @plap-disqus-43ec517d68b6edd3015b3edc9a11367b:disqus I’m with you! haha I will always use a separate Mastering IF I can, IF the budget allows! That’s not always the case though! Have a marvellous time recording and mixing, many thanks Warren

    Hi Wozza!
    Ahh ha! Ian’s the man! I’ve got his plugins and been using his site for reference for about a year now. I love that fact that he agrees you can master your own stuff at home as does Bobby Owsinski, when I emailed him last. Ian says that you should make the mastering process a separate issue and NOT master on the stereo buss but make the wave file and master that separately. Good advice, and it turns out that is what have been doing.
    My process, I use Ozone 7 and run through the presets to find something I like which matches to the music and ‘THEN’ start tweaking. Ian agrees with that and says it is a one way to go! So, I’m on the right tracks which is good to know!
    Marvellous! ☺ ♫♪♫

    Love Ian’s work and philosophy we were able to get him to master my bands last ep. Really appreciated the communication and advice he gave us. Have a few more projects being finished off which will all be sent to him for to master.
