In this premium video tutorial, we show how Dan Cooper approaches album mastering using his own hybrid studio setup. The term “hybrid” is used in the audio production industry to simply describe a studio or workflow that uses a combination of both analog outboard gear and “in the box” plug-ins within the same tracking, mixing or mastering chain.
Mastering a collection of songs can be challenging, especially if there is a variety of musical genres to balance together.
In this video, Dan shows you how he approaches balancing songs together in his typical mastering workflow. We address loudness, tone and overall album vibe using a combination of a control surface, outboard EQ & compression along with the power of plug-in processing in Pro Tools.
