Mastering tutorial

Looking for a Mastering Tutorial. Prefer visual, audio is ok though. The style of music I am looking to Master is Hip Hop/R&B. I use Pro Tools to mix & Waves Diamond Bundle to master in. Would be nice if anyone could direct me to a Mastering Tutorial for Waves Diamond Bundle. Everything I have is Digital.

Thank you

The first two sentences alone are pure gold.

The icing on the cake is the software he is using. Yes, this could be fun.

(EDIT)

(Just caught this...) "Visual" tutorial on audio mastering...?

The Waves manuals are pretty well written.

Did you try reading them?

You are best avoiding tutorials and instead you should read up extensively on the theory of mastering (What it is for, why it is used etc). Maybe even do some kind of course. Then you should begin experimenting yourself using the tools you mentioned. I would advise against using tutorials and learn the craft yourself. Definately more satisfying and you will learn a lot more in the long run than by following a tutorial.

I remember a few years ago a friend of mine a some DVDs from Steinberg in regards to a mastering tutorial. The tutorial was about mastering in general, if I can recall, but the processing was centered around working with Wavelab...of course.

You might want to crack open a manual or two...key word crack.....

That is kinda cheeky considering :
.. MASTERING COSTS
..
$35.00 - 1 Song
$$70.00 - 2 Songs
$100.00 - 3 Songs
$135.00 - 4 Songs
$180.00 - 5 Songs
$225.00 - 6 Songs
$275.00 - 7 Songs
$350.00 + - 8 Songs or more
Maybe re-invest some of your profits into learning to do what you just charged someone to do without knowing how to do it.

I have to say, that made absolutely no sense to me either.

It's pretty obvious his plugins must be pirated.
