Join David Franz for an in-depth discussion in this video Setting up a session for mastering, part of Pro Tools 10 Essential Training.
Mastering is the last stage in the production process, and it takes place after…you're done mixing all of the songs in a project.…Mastering in Pro Tools can transform your final mixes into professional-…sounding recordings.…Mastering treats your final mixes so that the songs sound good on all playback…systems, from one's speaker clock radios, to hi-fi stereos, to your car stereo.…In the mastering process the volume level of all of the tracks are made to be…competitive with other mastered recordings.…
Also, the EQ and the volume of each song are tweaked so that they create a…cohesive final product.…Some other considerations in mastering are checking and adjusting the left-right…balance and the phasing and the stereo imaging of all the tracks.…You also need to listen for and fix any unwanted noises.…You can also add real or simulated tube or analog gear into the signal path…to warm it up.…And at the very end of the process, you can add dithering and noise shaping, and…I'm going to talk about that in a movie later in the course.…
