The Importance of Mastering Relationships
I was recently alerted to the availability of an online, inexpensive, and automated, yes automated, mastering service. This concept makes me rather curious about the audio world in which we currently live. Can a song be instantly mastered using one click of a button by a computer server alone? Is this clever? Is this correct? It screams of the ‘that’ll do attitude’ we have all become used to with ‘we’ll fix it in the mix’ and the widespread adoption of substandard audio quality to CD.
