The year was 2002.
There I was, in my basement bedroom, finishing up the recording for a song I had just written.
I was so proud. I put on the headphones to listen to my masterpiece. I sat back, closed my eyes and pressed play.
I’d never been so disappointed in my life.
There was something missing. I couldn’t tell what it was, but I knew there was something I’d overlooked that the pros were doing.
Was it my mix? I tried adjusting the channels on my four-track. No dice.
Was it the microphone? I went out and bought a new one and re-recorded everything. Still, I hated how it sounded.
Does this sound familiar? Have you ever wondered what the secret sauce is that makes artists sound professional, that makes your home recordings sound like what you hear on the radio?
You’re in luck. I’ve cracked the code.
I needed professional sound. But how?
By now, I’m sure you’ve figured out that I’m talking about mastering. Chances are, you know more about sound engineering than I did almost fifteen years ago.
Mastering is the final step in obtaining professional sound. It’s that little switch you flip to go from amateur to pro.
But you already knew that.
What you may not have known is that mastering doesn’t have to be done manually anymore.
I always thought mastering was beyond my reach.
Until I discovered LANDR.
