Doug and Matt ask the big question, what is mastering? In this discussion we get beyond the strictly audio side of what people call the ‘dark art’ of music mastering and into the other, less-discussed things a mastering engineer brings to the table. Topics covered include metadata, file formats, the RIAA curve for vinyl, and more.
Doug and Mojo finish off their recording and mixing series with a discussion of arguably the most important and tricky part of a mix, the vocals. Topics covered include room treatment, mic choice, mic technique, mixing tips and more!
A casual discussion of what’s going on with our bad selves turns into an in-depth discussion on music business development and marketing! We touch on sponsored ads, social media post reach, analytics, process documentation, soliciting help when you need it, and above all, the client experience and how proud we are to be in this business.
