I think another good reason is because its a lot easier to clip the track with plugins on the master fader.
Great advice! But the rule for mastering I’m advised on repeatedly is to NOT do it yourself, for numerous reasons. What’s your take on that?
I usually have someone else master my own music. It’s like anything, sometimes it’s better to have someone else do it, simply because they’re someone else. But you can still do a good job yourself.
