    Mastering can be optional. If you want to play your song at a live concert, you can focus more on the bass and the melody to really rattle their bones. All you have to do is turn down for what.

    You're not going as in depth on mixing as you should be.. mixing isn't just adjusting volumes...theres WAY more to it than that. Mixing is essentially "cleaning" your track by not only adjusting volumes, but taking away unnecessary frequencies by EQing, and sidechaining your kicks and such to make them stand out more without actually boosting the volume. For example, when you EQ an 808, you take out the high ends because an 808 is more meant to be a bass kick or just a bass in general. It's purpose is making more headroom in the master channel so that frequencies don't clash with each other (when frequencies clash you get a muddy and messy sounding mix). If you only adjust volumes, you'll still get frequency clashes even if you mix everything really low. Also in your mastering, you need to EQ out the really low frequencies and really high frequencies (15-25 Hz, and 18+ or 19+ kHz). You can't actually hear these freqencies, but you'll notice on big loud speakers that your tracks will have this really low rumble for no reason and this barely noticable high drone. And take note...your kick should NOT look like that in the premaster...that will make it distort in the final no matter how much you compress it.

    I think,all the tracks must have the same volume.I know its all about music style etc,but now you must make more compression-more cut kick,more volume for melody and other ..... ????am I right?

    doesn't it matter that the intro is a lot smaller in the wave file than the actual track? I'm working on a house song right now and the break is a lot smaller than the drop, which sounds logical, but at most tracks I check out the wave file does look more like a sausage. Meaning that it looks more equal along the whole song instead of being small at the intro and break and being big at the drop. any ideas/tips?

    You should mention that this video is 95% about mastering.
