Mastering is the final step of audio post-production. And podcast mastering can be seen as part of that. The purpose of mastering is to balance sonic elements of a stereo mix and optimise playback across all systems and media formats. Traditionally, mastering is done using tools like equalisation, compression, limiting and stereo enhancement.

Think of mastering as the glue, varnish and polish that optimises playback quality on all devices — from tiny iPhone speakers to massive dance club sound systems. Mastering bridges the gap between artist and consumer. The term itself comes from the idea of a master copy.

All copies or duplications of the audio come from the master. These copies can be distributed on multiple formats like vinyl, CD’s or Tape, and streaming services like Spotify, iTunes and SoundCloud. Additionally, mastering allows for restoration of hisses, clicks or small mistakes missed in the final mix.

Mastering also ensures uniformity and consistency of sound between multiple tracks on an album. Ultimately, what mastering does is create a clean and cohesive feeling across all your audio.It makes it consumer-ready, club-ready and more polished.

Why Bother With Podcast Mastering?

The goal of mastering is to ensure that your audio will sound the best it can on all platforms. Podcasts have never been consumed on more devices than today. Even if you are recording and mixing in a million dollar studio, or recording in less than ideal conditions, you still need the final quality check of mastering. This ensures that your sound will be heard the way you intended it to be.

A good mastering job makes an album consistent and balanced across all tracks. Without mastering, individual tracks can sound disjointed in relation to each other.

Mastering is a bit like photography – you can make the sky bluer and the grass greener.

Why You Should Not Use An Algorithm

You should not use an algorithm like LANDR or some such – this is because no matter how good the math is lacks the human touch. You do not want a one-size fits all robot mastering your track. As an example, run a field recording through LANDR and see how it copes with that?

It just use basic compression and squeezes everything in to a mess.

Do you trust this same robot with your podcast? Get a professional to help with your stereo mastering.

Podcast Mastering – FYI

Now think of podcast mastering like the best carwash ever. You want your new car to look as slick and shiny as possible. Mastering polishes everything to a perfect shine. It puts gas in the tank and oils up all the moving parts for the best possible performance.

What Next?

Think of mastering as the bridge between creation and sharing. After mastering, your audio should sound complete, uniform, professional and balanced. Whether you’re sharing online as a free download, or pressing a massive run of vinyl, good mastering allows you to release your work with confidence — no matter where it’s played.
