If you've ever picked your own vegetables and turned them into a delicious meal, you'll know what mixing is. Earthing up the raw, muddy, beautiful chunks of music you've created and recorded, and giving them a good old scrub before throwing them in a pot together (with a hint of spice, here and there) in the most delicious way possible.
Mixing is taking each individual musical element you've recorded and combining them in a finished mix which best presents the sound, the message, and the roar of the original composition in the best possible way.
If you've ever finished making a really delicious meal, you'll know all about mastering. It's when you take your perfectly-baked casserole and cut it into precise slices, presenting it neatly on a plate with an exciting garnish on top.
Mastering is taking the finished mix of your music and presenting it with sparkle, edge and flourish. Without mastering, your music is still sitting in the oven in a casserole dish; tasty, yet unrefined and unpresentable.
What makes an artist truly timeless and age-defying? It's the stuff that makes them unique. It's what they shout about. It's their roar.
