Our Q&A with Chris Sonia at Dauntless Mastering has has been supplemented with some high-quality audio streams of tracks before and after he mastered them. We're pleased to offer you 320kbps MP3 streams of three different tracks, before and after mastering, so you can hear what he discusses in the article.
The three tracks are:
RECORDING/Dauntless contest winner Justen Cimino's "Lizard Skin", an acoustic jazz track;
Skyward Down's "Vacant Hello", a hard rock track; and
Clyde's "Molecules", an alternative track.
PLEASE NOTE: These are big files! The players take a while to load, especially on a slow net connection. Please be patient!
