Sorry about the problems you encountered but again NOT ALL MASTERING ENGINEERS are BAD...
Have a great weekend!
Thanks for the info-- the long story short is... she thought it HAD to be mastered because it was her first "proper" album. Sad thing was, she always had the punk mentality of "I don't give a crap what it sounds like, as long as people like the songs. It could be noisy, hissy, or polished and shiny. I don't care. I just want people to hear it."
So, she took it to be mastered, and decided, because the engineer said my source material was too noisy, that it was "too noisy."
She is an extremely talented guitarist, but also changes her mind on a dime and is EASILY influenced by various people or opinions. I, on the other hand, am not.
It's a great record. It's much better quality than the "pro" studio she used and the EP she subsequently released.
