    I have been studying sound recording for about 3 months. And this forum has been extremely helpful is pointing me in a possitive direction. I was just wondering if a few of you could post pre-mastered songs and then a mastered version of the same song. I want to have a chance to test my ears and figure out what a mastered recording should sound like. as always thanks for any help.

    Two problems.

    Most songs are copyrighted and so one cannot just post them on the web.

    Second problem is that in order to post a couple of songs on the web you would probably need to convert them to MP3s which would not be good for hearing examples of before and after.

    Suggest finding a mastering studio near where you live and ask if you can listen to some before and afters of a couple of songs or go with a band or artist when they go to the mastering studio and listen for yourself.

    that's true but if anyone has something to share (even if it's mp3) please feel free.

    I have a bunch of A/B's on the MM site -

    Most of them are from somewhat problematic recordings though... The changes may be a little more "radical" than most recordings that sound really good in the first place...
