Mastering is frequently regarded as a technique that is best left to the experts, one that requires an almost superhuman level of hearing and a bespoke mastering suite, filled with state of the art equipment. It’s little wonder that when many music makers and producers reach that stage in the process, they outsource their mastering without a second thought. However, that need not always be the case. In our cover feature this month, Adam Crute unravels the deep mysteries of mastering and explains how – with a little know-how – you can take on the daunting task of preparing your music for release yourself. Also in this issue, we had the amazing honour of speaking to Doctor Who’s new composer Segun Akinola. A BAFTA Breakthrough Brit, Segun’s compositions for the beloved series are inspired by the original, experimental approach that the BBC’s Radiophonic Workshop spearheaded in the 1960s, but they still retain his own unique stamp.
