Mastering rock music can be a challenge, even for an experienced engineer. Mastering in rock music can add a certain depth and sound to the music and it totally depends on the sub genre of rock your working with. Heavy metal for instance is known for being loud and extreme in a lot of cases, where as soft rock is known for its subtlety and carefully crafted passages and dynamics.

You might be saying to yourself “I can do it myself” but here are a few reasons why mastering your own rock music may not be such a good idea…
You have spent a lot of time, sweat and tears over it and are probably quite emotionally invested in the track as well. With this in mind you might not be able to make rational decisions about what’s needed. You may have spent the last 3 days getting the mix right and as such your ears are accustomed to the sound. A fresh pair of ears is worth its weight in gold!
Accurate monitoring. In home studios and a lot of mixing studios the acoustics in the room are not always the best for mastering. Mastering rooms are designed for this exact task mastering. Really hearing every little thing in detail. Knowing the equipment and what’s right for the job! Just because someone uses a piece of hardware or a plugin on one track and it sounds good does not mean it will sound great on every track. A good mastering engineer will know how their equipment sounds and what’s right for the job and most importantly – how to use it!
