Join Matt Piper for an in-depth discussion in this video Mastering your own recording, part of Learning Reason 8.
- Just as there's no one right way to mix,…there's really no one right way to master.…People have different tastes, there're different genres…with different popular sounds.…So I would encourage you to let your ears be your guide.…And if you have a song that you can reference,…if you have some music that you like…in the same genre that you're mastering,…it's a really nice idea to listen to that music…on the same speakers that you're mastering on,…and compare what you're doing to what…you like the sound of in your music collection.…
So as a first step in mastering this recording,…I'd like to go to the mixer, and I'm gonna hide the effects…because we're not using those, we're done with the EQ.…And now I can see everything that I need to see.…And before I make any adjustments,…I want to go undo a change that we made…earlier when we were mixing, to routing.…So I'm going to press F6 to go to the rack,…press Tab to flip the rack around,…and for mixing we were using the control room out,…especially in case we wanted to solo the send effects…
