a friend of mine recorded a project for a band and they took it to get professionally mastered at Freq Mastering. Everything on the mastered copy sounded more present, it was subtle like you couldn't hear EQing or compression it was just that every instrument found their place. Is this presence acheived by just running things through really nice analog outboard gear? Cause it really didn't seem EQ'ed. it's strange to me, as i master things but am no mastering engineer(i just pump the level and add in a little eq where i think it lacks).
