Initial Discussions & CD Referencing

Choosing the right track to begin the mastering session is EXTREMELY important. The  rest of the session will hinge around the first master, and therefore it is necessary to pick a song with the right kinds of elements, whatever they might be.

“Often a track intended for release as a single is the most important thing on the album, so that is a good starting point,” but I’ve done albums before where I’ve thought I’d picked a representative track, and had built everything to fit around it, only to find out halfway through the session that a different track would have been a better choice. On those rare occasions I’ve had to go back and rework everything in relation to the new track.”
