I Left a post in the mastering section tell those guys " mastering is Overated"... and that it's only a song .., I can just imagine what theyre really saying (aside from the sarcasm). Why I did it ? Well to me , mixing is the most important thing in the process of a final product . matter of fact more time is spent perfecting a mix than actually mastering ., while mixing 10 songs may take 2 weeks , mastering 15 songs can take 1 day., If you have a great mix mastering guys have little to do except levels an EQ for cohesiveness. Some of those guy are just salesmen drumming up busines for those who dont know anything. You may get a master your happy with or you may get in your pick-up truck (shotgun in tow) hunting for the guy who messed up your mix...,and for this is say mastering is overated.., a great mix is more improtant, for without it how can you obtain a great master ???????
