Mastering, mastering, mastering, a term I am quickly getting to know here! We’ve had a multitude of tracks through the studio, ranging from film music and Drum & Bass to Dubstep and Rap, all of which have had the Audio Animals analogue treatment. The variation between jobs helps to keep ears fresh, after all each track is approached uniquely and will need treating differently to everything else before and after.
The learning curve today has been very steep, not only am I learning what I’m doing but more importantly why I’m doing it, this will allow me to develop my own skills and understand what each piece of equipment contributes towards the overall effect we’re aiming to achieve.
The highlight of the day has got to be receiving the Apprentice’s Notebook, finally I have something to help me learn the patchbay.
