Well, I missed this thread and started chatting breeze over here!

My initial thing I wanted was what’s with having a mix recorded at -6db for headroom. Short of it, garyb said it’s just to be “safe”. As I can’t get the difference of having a mixdown/wave peaking at -1db, even 0db and just adjusting the input into whatever mastering things used to give one headroom for any processing they do.

Wondered what others thought as a lot of people seem to go crazy and that mixdown “must” be at -6db, but that just surely means your whole mix is just 6db closer to the noise floor.

And what is “mastering” to people.

For me, no matter how good a mix I achieve (or don’t) doing somesort of processing on the final mix improves stuff. Yes there’s the just getting a piece of music to work on all playback systems. But what of polish/gloss/sugar coating that mix.
