    The September/October issue of Tape Op magazine has a hilarious back page dedicated to both Mastering engineers and Mix Engineers.
    A very funny read!!!
    If they had it online, I would post a link...but they don't digitize their articles.

    Anyway...this thread is going exactly as expected. I saw the Sticky this morning as soon as it was posted...and I had a feeling it wasn't going to pass unnoticed for too long without getting the Home Recording Forum scrutiny it deserved!

    Any mic you buy will be perfectly suited to your needs, until you use it long enough to learn that it's not.

    Here ya go, KC, just for you:

    And don't jump the gun; there's those of us who did NOT say that mastering always had to be done by a pro . Sure it can be done DIY. But not the way this guy is thinking. It can be a bogus article without the general idea being bogus.

    everybody....stay cool


    How many homerecorders does it take to replace a light bulb?

    Five. Four to reminisce about how much better the old tube light bulbs were, and one to actually do it.

    Like I said, this is the root of the problem. Mastering has very, very little to do with $2000 software. Mastering has almost everything to do with speakers and room treatment costing tens of thousands of dollars on the low end.

    It's like saying "yes, there is an investment when you learn to play guitar, but then the pic and 1/4 inch cable are yours". It kind of misses the biggest part, and the only part that matters.

    None. They're all too busy asking others if the current light bulb seems bright enough to them because they can't seem to tell by themselves.

    no its to get all your songs to have continuity in an album as far as I'm concerned

    I get tired of all the rules of what you can and cannot do, of what you need or dont need, dont dare mix without a treated room, dont dare master without $3000 monitors and a black cape

    I believe as much of it as my dentists micro chips anti biotics...

    know what you are listening for, know how to fix problems you hear..and brush your bloody teeth twice a day

    that'll do me
