Mastering

‘Mastering’ refers to the final step in a production where a mix is prepared for manufacturing and distribution.

The process ensures that the mix is at a standardized level and that it will sound as close to intended as possible on all systems. Mastering engineers are specialized professionals who use many niche tools, including maximizers, phase-accurate EQs, multiband compressors, and more.

Some sound effects on Soundsnap are mastered to sound full and loud, while other sound effects are intentionally left closer to their original sound quality. This is dependant on the type of sound effect.

Below is a tutorial on how to master a song in Logic Pro X.
