Mastering your music

Posted by – November 9, 2010

Why is it important to master your songs? Why should we even pay for someone to master it? These might be the questions that go around your head all day. The answer to this question is simple. There is a standard quality out there and if you want your song to be listened to, you must conform to the standards. Mastering is a post – processing procedure, it is usually done after the laying down of tracks, after the editing and the mixing process. Mastering is the process of leveling out everything, compressing and laying down the final touches of the song. This is the process where you are setting the song into a uniform format and quality that is at par with international standards.

Mastering is a tedious process and should be done by professionals. Although you could possibly do it yourself, most of the time, it would not be as good as the ones done by a professional. Professional sound engineers use expensive high quality equipments for mastering alone. If you try and listen to international hit songs, they sound the same and they have this distinct clarity and feel. That is the reason why you should master your songs.

PSYCHEDELLIC

Can you actually define what Psychedelic music is? What’s with this music? Well, if you have been listening to Jimi Hendrix lately then you have just experienced a dose of psychedelic.

In guitar world, psychedelic music is played with fuzzy guitars, delayed guitars and other guitar effects that could make it psychotic. The beetles had their touch of the Psychedelic genre too, in their album Rubber Soul up to the last; every song has a touch of psychedelic. This type of music has evolved in the late 70’s, when our mom and dad’s are currently not wearing any shoes and nature is the best thing.

Anyway, fads come and go but the music stays. Fashion is something that fades but the music, if it’s good enough, it would stay as long as it could. Have you ever noticed songs from the past that stayed up until now? That is because they are strong enough to withstand the test of time. That is real music indeed. If the music is just a fad, expect it to be gone after a year or so. Just like Justin Bieber, a few years from now, no one would ever bother looking at him because he is just a fad.
