The most common problem we see at LANDR is a lack of headroom. Ask any mastering engineer and they’ll say the same thing: if a track comes in too hot, there’s no room left to master. There’s even an acronym for it: ‘GIGO’ stands for Garbage In, Garbage Out (producers equivalent of YOLO?). Regardless of your gear and your studio setup, making sure there’s adequate headroom is the single best thing you can do for your mixes.
