    Getting a project mastered by a pro

    Went up to Airshow Mastering with my studio partner yesterday to play some tracks and see if they'd be interested in mastering a project I've mixed. Quite the room.

    I must say that I have been impressed with a recent mastering job done by artist that recorded in my studio.

    Mastered by Adam Ayan at Gateway Mastering Portland, ME Gateway Mastering Studios

    I sent the ME both my home master as well as the raw master out. His was IMO a way better final result.


    Here is the video:



    Of course that does not reveal the difference between both as this is compressed. I have the wav files for both mine and what Adam did. Give me a few. I'll play the difference. If I actually have the right's to do that. I better check first.

    I have gotten permission to use both for this forum.

    Sorry, it two big full wav downloads. But it is there for anyone to listen to if you have the desire.

    I find the subtle differences the reason why I would have another experienced ME master a song that I produced. I just seems to feel better with an educated outside ear. And it sounds better on multiple systems, where mine was iffy on some. Learning experience for sure to me.

    I sent them as two separate tracks instead of a zip file. So they are on two pages with separate download links. Click Right Tab for second mastered version.

    Jimmy, I'm interested in checking these examples out but busy at work and leaving for vacation soon. Can you leave these up for a bit longer?

    Link is set to never expire. So as long as I keep paying the monthly fee, it will remain. Have used Hightail/Yousendit for over 5 years so looks good.

    Have a great vaca! Doing anything super cool? Though any vacation is just that...
