Hello All, At final stages of mixing projects to send to mastering housing, questions? 1. I look at my Eq curve of the final mix on a RTA realtime analyzer and try to get it as flat as possible. (right now they are pretty close ) Is this a good thing? 2. I bounce my final mixes with NO comp or master EQ on the master buses. 3. Should I send my final master to the mastering houses this way or should I put a final EQ, Comp, Dither, on the master bus to get it to sound the best to my ears as possible. 4. Does the mastering house sweeten the final EQ and such, so it is better to send them the unprocessed mix. Thank You for any input on this.
