Hi, I recorded and mixed my own album. I tried my best to do a good mix, but I know it still sounds like a home job. This is why I was expecting a fairly dramatic change after I got the reference tracks back from supposedly one of the premiere mastering facilities in Canada. The mastered file is the studio's second crack at it, so I can't just say that I'm not impressed. I'm wondering if my expectations were too high, or if not, what I should say to the studio. I'm perfectly open to the idea that I might be crazy as well. http://springstein.googlepages.com/Since-mix.mp3 http://springstein.googlepages.com/Since-mastered.mp3 I would be so thankful if some of you would list to these tracks and give me your thoughts. Thank you.
