This series is fantastic. What a great job in demystifying;
a) what mastering actually is
and
b) demonstrating a pragmatic process by which to do it.

All without any mention of 'Golden ears' or 'first you need this unobtainable space and equipment' nonsense! Perfect for the hobbiests who just want to have a go with what they have to make their projects the best they can be.

Great stuff and thankyou. I'm really looking forward to episode 4!
