Hollin Jones on Sun, February 5th 0 comments
Mastering for vinyl has its own special set of considerations. Luckily Joe Albano is here to demystify the process using some specialised plugins from the Waves Abbey Road Collection.

Vinyl is more popular now than it has been for many years, but mastering your music for vinyl requires a different approach to other media. Luckily, Waves offers a couple of plugins in their Abbey Road Collection that are modelled on the amazing hardware found at the legendary Abbey Road Studios made famous by The Beatles and many others. In this short 4 minute video, Joe Albano explains how vinyl differs from other playback formats and how you can master specifically for it. 

There are quite a few differences between mastering for digital and for vinyl, such as much lighter limiting, checking for mono compatibility, center and side processing and more. Joe explains why these are important and also how you can use them to your advantage. Check out the other videos in the course to learn more about mastering for vinyl!
