Mastering is the last audio-engineering step in the music making process. In general audio mastering 'glues' an album together by averaging the loudness from song to song, as well as the tonal balance such as bass and treble. A properly mastered record is loud enough for online streaming, and dynamic enough to keep it exciting. Most importantly it will translate well to any system -- regardless if using earbuds or large speakers.
My goal in mastering is to help capture and engage the listener so that they want to listen again and again, hearing something new each time, no matter what system their music is played on.
