Mastering with Mike Wells

Remix Magazine has published very nice videos about mastering. In the first part of a four-part series, San Francisco–based mastering engineer Mike Wells offers advice on mix formats, labeling your masters, the benefits of FTP file transfers and tips and techniques for getting the best possible sound. Part two of this seminar continues with Mike Wells explaining signal flow, quality control and the use of analog processing and/or plug-ins in the process of creating an audio master.

Third part covers issues and techniques (including M/S sum+difference processing) for making punchy, full-sounding masters that stand out from the rest, with listening examples from actual projects.

In the last part, Mike Wells discusses compressors, limiters, bus compression, normalization and parallel compression techniques. This last segment of this 4-part series also features a question/answer segment, with some final advice for creating the best possible audio master.

Very informative seminar - it lasts about 70-80 minutes (and stream quality is very good). If you're interested in mastering - don't forget to check those videos:
