Mix Comparison: From Rehearsal To Master

Have you ever wondered how much of a difference there really is between the finished mix and the mastered version? How about between basics and finished overdubs? Or rehearsal to the final product?

Here's a video from the DVD that comes with The Music Producer's Handbook that provides a comparison of a song at every stage of the process, from rehearsal to basics to overdubs to mix to master. The song is "Feedback and Distortion" from the second SNEW album We Do What We Want that I produced a few years ago (check out their Live From The Snewdio show. I'm on the first episode).

You can read excerpts from The Music Producer's Handbook and my other books on the excerpts section of

Wow. What a difference good mastering makes. I'd better find a budget for this for the new project.

As it becomes more and more finished, it becomes clearer and clearer how important it is that you start with a good performance of a good song. Yikes.
