Tony feels that the prime objective of mastering is to retain the integrity of the music while enhancing it to some degree. Often the excitement and atmosphere created while mixing won’t travel to another location and Mastering can help to restore these elements (assuming they were there in the first place!).
Tony enjoys many different types of music. Just concentrating on one area would reduce the variety and richness of his work and he says, “put him in a creative straightjacket”.
