MASTERING: How to save your money and build up your own mastering studio.

Nowadays it's easy to throw your money in online mastering services. Very expensive and sometimes shoddy. The best way to enhance our productions is do it alone.
With the same money you spent for the online mastering service of 8 tracks, you can buy a good and complete VST plug-in with professional results. 

So save your money, build up your studio and your professionality !

One of my favourites VST plug-in for mastering is iZotope Ozone.
