When this thead is about mastering... I've just made a new track and when I was going to master it (wich is new for me beacause I've never done it before), I felt that my mixing already was good enough for the track. I mean, sometimes mastering isn't necessary and it just makes the track too much and loud. So my question is: Is mastering an obvious part of a complete song?
Not sure if it's any help. But recently had an 'epiphany' moment. In that moment I realized that no amount of compression and limiters can save an imbalanced song. You can certainly try (as I frequently have), but in the end you'll always feel like something is missing. Best advice I can give is to try to get your song sounding as great as possible without a limiter or compressor on the main channel, but don't be afraid to do per-channel compression. Also, a little bit of clipping is better than a super-squished mix.
Hi, I make Liquid DnB and sometimes house. I use FL Studio and do not have the fancy Mastering tools. I want to start with EQing cause all my friend bitch about it lol I don't know anything about it. Anybody help?

i got a question for y'all. who here mixes with their mastering plugins on? so you can kinda segue towards that sound you're looking for (so your mix doesn't sound quiet as fuck, basically). or does it depend on the track.
personally, i tend to keep mine on.. i find it way easier. from watching many youtube tutorials, lots of pros do this too, even if it is a big "fuck you" to traditional engineers. To name a couple off the top of my head... Seamless, Mutrix (they're both dubstep/heavy dnb producers) do this... perhaps it is just a dubstep/dnb thing? I hesitate to say that it is, though.
Hi guys thanks for your patience in my replying, this blog has been fairly quiet during the last part of 2013 however over the last month I've been doing some much needed updated, getting the look right, getting rid of some ads and got a new logo:-
