Mastering is frequently regarded as a technique that is best left to the experts, one that requires an almost superhuman level of hearing and a bespoke mastering suite, filled with state of the art equipment. It’s little wonder that when many music makers and producers reach that stage in the process, they outsource their mastering without a second thought.

However, that need not always be the case. In our cover feature this month, Adam Crute unravels the deep mysteries of mastering and explains how – with a little know-how – you can take on the daunting task of preparing your music for release yourself.

Also in this issue, we had the amazing honour of speaking to Doctor Who’s new composer Segun Akinola. A BAFTA Breakthrough Brit, Segun’s compositions for the beloved series are inspired by the original, experimental approach that the BBC’s Radiophonic Workshop spearheaded in the 1960s, but they still retain his own unique stamp.

Elsewhere, we have a whole new heap of lovely products in our review section, with IK’s all-analogue UNO synth in particular being a tremendously useful (and fun!) piece of tech. Our practical, DAW-specific guides this month cover a typically vast range of topics alongside a general guide to EQing your tracks.

No longer a ‘dark art’ performed by hermits in lab coats, the final stage of mastering is an essential topic that every computer musician should understand. 

If you know what’s required to optimise the sonic quality of your music from the start, you’ll adapt your music-making strategies to suit. And if you want to master music yourself, you’ll be aware of the dos and don’t that the job demands, and avoid common mistakes such as two-bus ‘overcooking’ or mindless processing just for the sake of it.

There’s an often repeated cliche that mastering is a kind of ‘dark art’ – a deep and impenetrable science that is beyond the capabilities of mere mortals. However, given the amount of tutorials, courses and mass-market plugins out there, all designed to tackle the mastering process, this is clearly nonsense. 

That’s not to say that the process doesn’t require a fair amount of skill and expertise, but given the power of modern DAWs and plugins, these are now techniques that even the most cash-strapped producer can get to grips with at home. In this issue’s cover feature, we’ll introduce you to the tools, theory and essential skills you’ll need to get to grips with mastering in your DAW.
