Perhaps you misread or misunderstood what I wrote. I DON'T think mastering is just about getting levels right, what I'm saying is in a practical real world that probably all you need to concern yourself with. So, no I don't need to go back anywhere and read anything. I am well aware of the original intent behind mastering, much of which is really not all that applicable to single tracks anyway - tracks that for most people invariably end up as MP3's on some website not being listened to.foolomon wrote:Doug: both versions were printed to the K-14 spec, so the levels shouldn't be too low.
Ian: I understand what you're saying, but I'll counter that if you think mastering is simply about getting levels correct then I think you need to go back and read up on what mastering intends to accomplish.

just my opinion though..Kevin
