scott717 wrote:Also, looking at the Control Room loudness meter, what average loudness should I shoot for in my final mix to go to the mastering engineer?
As discussed roughly every 3 months - yes it is if your whole signal path is 32 bit fp - Although someone will probably tell you something about gain staging.

I wonder what kind (or lack thereof) of mastering engineer do you do business with that would be rude and wouldn't provide help in order to make the mix, and ultimately the master, the best it can be?

If a ME tells you, what he prefers in terms of compression, you should look for a new one...
