On this episode of the podcast, Mike Kalajian (Saosin, Against the Current, Moving Mountains) joins the show to cast some light on the subject of mastering.
Ever been confused about mastering? You’re not alone. It’s a process that a lot of audio professionals just take an, “It’s just weird magic or something” approach to. Well, no longer! Mike is here to demystify the process a bit and, by the end, hopefully you’ll be on some better footing about what mastering is, why it matters, and how to get started if it’s a part of the audio production process that you’re interested in persuing.
