As a mastering engineer, on average, how many adjustments do you make in your EQ, for example do you mostly work with high ends, or have the EQ notched at every frequency, and if so, what (shape) of this look like. Here is another more direct question... Most of the time that I master work, the incoming work comes in poorly mixed, and i have to make huge improvements in the EQ, but recently, someone brought in a work that was done in a pro studio, and the eq job was near perfect on each individual track in the sequence, and the final product sounded great! So what should i do in the EQ? Should i add some brigtness to the mix with high end, or what, better safer than sorry... right? And the other problem is that if i do nothing more than n-reduce and compress and set up a limiter and use the L2 to bring it up, the client might feel discouraged and say that i didn't do enough an might not want to pay, and considering that this is my largest gig so far, i don't want to pass up this chance. Thank you in advance to anyone who responds.
