Production Quick Tip of the Week #30
This tip may not seem as obvious as you think. So many times I receive mixes to master with little to zero headroom. A lot of times I get mixes that are clipping & louder than what I would ever master it at.
Make sure to have some headroom when either sending it out to be master or even if you're mastering it yourself. You will want to make sure the headroom is going into the master channel rather than pulling the master channel fader down.
Pulling the master channel down will lower the volume after the audio has already clipped the master channel. By pulling the individual mix channels down & allowing the audio to go into the master channel to have headroom, you will have better quality.
If you are mastering a song for someone else & it doesn't have the headroom, I definitely recommend requesting your client to send a mix that has headroom rather than turning the volume down of the file on your end. This will help you achieve a higher quality & let your client have a better end result.
Have a productive week, Be Different. Be Dope.
