Mastering your own tracks can be exciting and exhilarating because you’re getting close to finalizing your project. If you are new to this process, however, it might drive you right up the walls. Some issues may be the types of plugins, the order of the chain, or maybe it’s time to upgrade your DAW.
Below is a video tutorial with Shawn Hatfield on how to get started with your mastering chain using purchased and stock plugins. The session is a track called “Jeremy’s New Song” by Surprise Attack. Keep at mind that we are using Pro Tools 12.7.1 and macOS Sierra 10.12.3. That said, there may be some differences between versions. Thanks for watching!
