Robert Henke talks with Rashad Becker about Mastering

Robert Henke talks with Rashad Becker about Mastering:

“Mastering means finishing a piece of music or any auditive work for a certain purpose. That purpose can be bound to free artistic ideas, it can also be related to, or referring to specific media, or it can be related to a specific purpose, like for example a certain speaker set up, or even a specific room. Radio broadcast would be also a specific condition.”
