I consider mastering a whole different game. It doesn't come with
knowledge, but with knowledge and more experience, and a facility
worth more than I can earn in a year. You've got to have at least 2
different rooms and a car stereo, not to mention a number of different
monitors and speakers ranging from $10 to $1000++.

So most of us actually do submasters, or leave it up to someone who
has been mastering for the last 20 years (more than $500).

And the best part is, for really good mixes, the only thing to master
would be the level, so the engineer just inserts one of those
plug-ins, pushes the fader up, and tells you it's done. First-hand
