Chapter 13. Processing and Mastering

Processing is the act of modifying audio or MIDI data with software- or hardware-based effects. This processing can occur in real time through the use of software plug-ins and hardware effects units, or it can occur as a file-based process that actually modifies and replaces the audio or MIDI data within a track. Even though this chapter appears after the “Mixing” chapter, audio and MIDI processing can happen anytime during the music production process—from the initial stage of recording and throughout the mixing and mastering stages. The processing section of this chapter, however, will focus specifically on audio soundbite processing. For information on MIDI plug-ins and processing, refer to Chapter 9.
