Should i make both an un mastered and mastered version of my e.p. to send to labels?
so first off a few things, feel free to move this thread to a more suitable area if there is one but i think this should go here? and also in regards to the title; im using the term mastering somewhat loosely here. when i say mastering, i'd just have simple little chains to do some standard compression and limiting and what have you to bring the volume up a bit. i'd bet my life that if i actually tried to do some real, extensive mastering jobs in this current set up i have i would kill the tracks.
but yeah, its all mixed and ready to send off but do labels really want you to do that? theres one or 2 i have in mind that say on the site un-mastered with around 6dB of headroom cus they'll be mastering it themselves, but others do not specify. what do you think i should do?
