Mastering Session ‚All our yesterdays‘ by Alan Parsons Part 1
Mastering engineer Friedemann Tischmeyer provides you with precious tips about mastering. Based on ‚All our yesterdays‘ by Alan Parsons he demonstrates how to use mastering tools effectively.
How Loud Should You Get in Mastering?
Mastering engineer Friedemann Tischmeyer describes the *Point Of Trade-off*.
This is the point of loudness where you can go to without damaging the integrity of your recording. If you go further you will pay each dB with an increasing amount of loss of transparency, impact, level balance and finally an increase of distortion. Finding the proper loudness is one of the most crucial questions when it comes to mastering.
