We put the kettle on. Mike pointed a microphone at us. Phil asked us some searching questions. We opened our mouths and noises came out.
We chatted for an hour or so about all sorts of mastering related stuff – Phil had a bunch of great questions about what mastering is all about, equipment, dynamic range & the loudness war, presets (the Devil’s work you know), the general quality of modern recordings and so on. The result has now been released as part of Episode Five of the Full English podcast, available from the recordproduction.com blog.
