ok doods, tomek gave us a link to a mastering house that he uses for his tracks and made me wonder........ i have never had a track mastered professionally, although i do have a crack at it myself i find it difficult with my monitors and room acoustics to get the track sounding 1st class. has anyone else here had their tracks mastered professionally? how much difference does this really make? how much does it cost? i've heard different opinions on this matter,...some say it makes a hell of a difference and really does make the track sound much fatter and professional. others say that u shouldn't really need to do much mastering at all. currently im using the waves bundle for mastering. has anyone tried and succeeded with other software applications. anyone got any tips?
