What makes a mastering engineer ?
I’ve written about the question “what is mastering” before, but when you try to explain where the boundary between an enthusiast and a “real” mastering engineer lies, things get more complicated.
I’m a professional mastering engineer. People come to me and ask me to make their music sound the best it can be – and I do.
And the truth is, if you want the absolute best for your music, I think you should do the same. Send it to someone like me to have it professionally mastered.
It took me years to get to this stage. I’ve done way more than my “10,000 hours” – and I know that experience counts.
But on the other hand, I run both this website and the Home Mastering Masterclass, where I tell people that you could get great results mastering your music at home !
Talk about conflicted.
