    Is there any literature or a tutorial that can walk me through typical settings used in mastering? I have a Masterlink and am using it for mixdown in my home studio. Not for release, mind you, but for my own songs. I am familiar with the functions ie eq, comp, normalizing by name but the manual does not go into detail about a typical mastering session. Would love a book called mastering for dummies!

    One good tutorial on mastering I've found is at the Propellerhead site: http://www.propellerheads.se/home/discover/

    With the Masterlink's internal processing, you're best off;

    1) carry your music around to a bunch of different playback systems

    2) make notes on common problem frequencies

    3) use the EQ to *cut* problem frequencies

    4) Set up the limiter threshold to maybe just past where you start tapping digital 0.

    5) Don't limit hard, and stay away from the comp.
