Hi all, I was wondering about your thoughts on normalizing certain tracks before mastering. What I mean is, though I have some of the equipment, I'm certainly not going to be mastering myself. I don't even want to learn that badly. Really I want to send all my mixes to a professional mastering studio who know what they're doing. Now I realize that most mastering engineers do NOT want us to tamper with, compress, EQ or limit the final stereo mix. But what about normalizing weak tracks during mixdown as a way of helping the mix? Would this make mastering any harder later? Any input greatly appreciated!
