OK, it's a nightmare - the pre mastering of a track. I know Reason 3 has some really nice presets - but I understand NOTHING of the settings and why they are set like that. I have trawled through the net for sooooooooooooo long about mastering and it seems to me that a lot of these 'experts' who put up their knowledge on the net contradict eachother. I have read numerous 'tips' that you SHOULD use compression / limiting and also you SHOULDNT use compression / limiting to get that studio sound. So no wonder I like many people get confused. Any more tips please? Or is there a site that offers excellent tips? My only tip I can offer is to get the track sounding as nice as possible in R3, then put it through T Racks.........I maybe wrong.???
