    don't master, leave that to professionals. Just focus on the music, and then get your mixing down. But mastering in my opinion is overkill for us producers, especially if you don't know what your doing.

    The source material is processed using equalization, compression, limiting, noise reduction and other processes. Subsequently, it is rendered to a medium such as CD or DVD. This mastered source material is also put in the proper order at this stage. This is commonly called the assembly or track sequencing. More tasks such as editing, pre-gapping, leveling, fading in and out, noise reduction and other signal restoration and enhancement processes can be applied as part of the mastering stage.
    The specific medium varies, depending on the intended release format of the final product. For digital audio releases, there is more than one possible master medium, chosen based on replication factory requirements or record label security concerns.
    A mastering engineer may be required to take other steps, such as the creation of a PMCD (Pre-Mastered Compact Disc), where this cohesive material needs to be transferred to a master disc for mass replication. A good architecture of the PMCD is crucial for a successful transfer to a glass master that will generate stampers for reproduction.
    The process of audio mastering varies depending on the specific needs of the audio to be processed. Steps of the process typically include but are not limited to the following:
    Transferring the recorded audio tracks into the Digital Audio Workstation (DAW) (optional).
    Sequence the separate songs or tracks (the spaces in between) as they will appear on the final product (for example, an audio CD).
    Process or "sweeten" audio to maximize the sound quality for its particular medium.
    Transfer the audio to the final master format (i.e., Red Book-compatible audio CD or a CD-ROM data, half-inch reel tape, PCM 1630 U-matic tape, etc.).
    Examples of possible actions taken during mastering:
    Edit minor flaws.
    Apply noise reduction to eliminate hum and hiss.
    Adjust stereo width.
    Add ambience.
    Equalize audio between tracks.
    Adjust volumes.
    Dynamic expansion.
    Dynamic compression.
    Peak limit the tracks.
    The guidelines above are mainly descriptive of the mastering process and not considered specific instructions applicable in a given situation. Mastering engineers need to examine the types of input media, the expectations of the source producer or recipient, the limitations of the end medium and process the subject accordingly. General rules of thumb can rarely be applied.

    Well if you really wanna learn go to a sound engineering school. to be honest, it takes a life time to learn how to master music perfectly, and like I said before, you really don't need to. Just mix it down, and if your song DOES become a hit, THEN you can think about mastering, but have I have some tips on my website. Check it out here.

    Mastering is perfecting the sound. Mixing is what makes it sound clean. Tweaking the high, and lows and stuff, that's all in mixing, which is what I've been saying. I'm a freshman in high school, and I would love to learn how to master, but I also understand how gruesome being a Sound Engineer is. Trust me man, if you can mix well, you will be FINE. And one thing you should know is that, most major producers like Timbaland, Polow The Don, and Kanye West.. those guys don't even master their stuff, they have people do it for them. So if your good enough, you won't even have to worry about it.

    yeah mixing alone will take you years im just starting to understand it now. most top producers have a team who do all of that stuff they just make the beat tell them how they want it to sound and they will work on it. its better to be a master of one kraft than a jack of a few
