This myth refers to the mystery of mastering and the fact that people view it as a black art that can only be conducted by people with incredible, sensitive hearing.
While there is truth in the fact that youneed to be fully conscious of what your ears are trying to tell your brain, mastering is something you can LEARN. No one is born with natural abilities to EQ. You learn these techniques through hours and hours of practice. When you become comfortable and confident in your room, and in what your ears are trying to tell you, then you can make decisions very quickly and you can immediately tell if something is ‘too bright’ or bass-heavy. Getting to that stage takes time, so you can learn how to become golden-eared with enough practice.
