Sonic maximization

Okay, in this section, we're going to take a look at mastering and addressing sonic maximization, or trying to make sure that we have the best sonic profile for a mix possible. That means we want to look at a few things. We want to check out, ultimately, the final output volume. We want to look at the dynamic range, or how loud the loudest parts are in relationship to the quietest parts, and see if there's a way we can compress that a little bit to get a little more volume out of the overall mix. And also we want to look at the frequency distribution, or make sure that it's not too base-heavy a mix, or may be missing out on some treble, or there's some strange spike where somehow we mixed one of the guitars and it's really pushing one frequency a lot more than the rest of the frequencies.

We want to try and make sure that all the frequencies are kind of heard evenly, not per instrument, but the overall mix. So let's start by just taking a look at what we've go...
