Mastering

Reference track?

A reference track is exactly what its name implies: it is a professionally recorded track that you use to compare your mix. So if you are mixing, say, drums and you think you have a really great sound, listen to your mix in comparison with your chosen reference track to see how your mix stacks up.

Stem Mastering? 

Unlike traditional mastering, in which the mastering engineer enhances a stereo file for commercial release, stem mastering combines multiple “stems” or stereo groups of instruments to create a final master. In Psytrance eg. kick, bass, drums & synth stems in -6db is a excellent starting point.

A more complex stem mastering session might include separate stems for kick, snare, percussion, bass, guitars, keyboards, lead vocals, and more. Each stem should be printed with all effects processing, including EQ, compression, and even time-based effects like reverb or delay.

Any processing on the master channel should be bypassed when exporting stems for mastering.

By separating the stereo mix into separate instrument groups, stem mastering offers more control over your sound than traditional stereo mastering and allows mastering engineers to make more precise changes.
