foog asked me for mastering on skold's topic, but I thought its better to start new one for it.

What is mastering?

there are written many books of mastering so I try to make this as short as possible :P

when making a song there are usually several steps:
composing - recording - mixing - mastering - track on final album.

after the recording, you have many tracks (guitar, vocal, bass etc.) that you mix (setting volume lvls, effects, EQ etc.) after the mix all those tracks go to one single track what we call as master track.

Mastering that track makes it even more thick and better sounding. In typical mastering there be used three effects which are Equalizer, Compressor and Limiter or multiband limiter.

How to use all of those I do not have enough knowledge to explain, but after the mastering you have professional sounding master track.

hope this clears something.
