Love this part:

"if you make a bad mix or bad song mastering won't do anything and if you have a bad song with very good mix and very good mastering you will have a bad song that sounds good." HAHA?

finally a cool video… keep it up like your gear too Tannoy's.. ? 🙂 cool?

Exept the fact that there are a lot o things going on, it's nice and Quick explanation. 🙂

Can anyone clarify what he was talking about at 2:10 ? 200Hz thing. It was hard to understand.?

Thanks so much with the 200 Hz thing, it really helped me a lot <3?

This is horrible advice. How can you know if you are doing anything positive on the master if your input level isn't hitting 0db?! Obviously he knows what each knob is doing cuz he's an engineer but I don't recommend any beginners use this technique. Mix first, then master later. You may not need anything besides a small limiter.?

Is it true that you should leave like -4db to -5db room in the master channel when the track finished so then you have space for mastering? ?

u can have great final mix with free plugins even !?

Rich artists also have their own cooks, drivers, personal trainers, etc. These youtube videos are tips for people who are obviously amateur/beginners in music production. Or even people who are not so amateurish but want to learn some tricks by other people's experiences. But what makes professional mastering better is many times just the equipment (of course considering the person doing the mastering is not an idiot)

The 200 hz dip trick is not always at 200. Please take your own advice tommy and listen. I find that trick can work anywhere from 180ish to 400ish depending on the track. Cool vid though man.

his english is already good, you dont HAVE TO speak with american accent to make people understand you.

7:11 the importance of transients
