Is it really necessary to Master a Loop based song ?
I'm working with Logic Pro 9 and WaveBurner. These compositions are all Loop based, except from some guitar tracks sometimes thrown in. I noticed when I brought the AIF file into Waveburner there wasn't much improvement overall to the sound.
I'm also trying to adopt a open-minded view about mastering. I see waveforms of todays files and they're MAXED and LOUD. Yet, I hear skilled engineers say "bring it back some" and NOT make it so loud.
So anyway, aren't loops already optimized ? Do I really need to Master these ?
