What is Mastering?
Mastering, also known as ‘pre-mastering’, is the process of optimizing all individual frequency levels to meet ‘industry standards’. It guarantees your final product will translate {i.e. sound great} on all playback systems and not just the studio where the music was recorded in.Optimum-mix-levels-for-mastering

It is also a last chance to present the music production to a world wide listening audience as best as you possibly can. Professional mastering usually involves quality control and disc assembly to ensure compliance with all cd manufacturing requirements.

Some mild processing may also be required to adjust dynamics and frequency content, however, this process is for the most part source dependent, so the better your mix, the better the results.
