Thinking Cap, other Masters and those who really know
I know that this might be a subjective question…
Generally, in Mastering, below which frequencies should I filter to mono, therefore having those frequencies above it, in Stereo?
I’ve heard/read below (Hz) 90-110, 120, 350 to mono.
I may add that the track is mostly “dance-ish”, a bit rock-ish and even ambient.
May I do this type of filtering (Mono/Stereo) during mixing rather?
For, interest sake (I have not tried it myself yet though), what will happen if I filter certain frequencies of an instrument (eg, Bass or Kick) to mono in The Mix, but during mastering I filter certain frequencies (but not necessarily from the exact freq as in The MIx) to mono again? (Basically, therefore filtering certain frequencies to mono twice - In Mix and Master).
Your informed, and - expanded opinions are always appreciated.
