1) In a eariler post someone mentioned to me that the mastering racks are used for mastering stereo files when done with a project. Does this mean If im using Midi channels I need to export my whole project to wav file then import it and add mastering racks to it? I dont think so cause ive seen people have mastering racks on projects that have midi channels before

2) I know there isnt no set rules but would you reccomend using abletons mastering racks on channels and the master channel too. To me that seems like you would be overmastering it. I know your supposed to just trust your ears but how many people hear put mastering racks on a channel and master channel too.

3) is it ok to put a saturator and a compressor on the same channel. Thats seem like it would be too much too as well. Or a saturator and a mastering rack on the same channel.

4) Last question - How do you using the spectrum anallyzer exaactly. This is my take on it. You put it on the master channel and solo out each channel and find out where there hitting at as far as frequency. then you try to pan out of carve out by eqing different instruments. but lets say you have two instruments that are very synthy and are in the same mid range area. do you just pan them apart , or side chain? ANY TIPS OR TRICKS FOR HOUSE OR TECHNO MUSIC WOULD HELP THANKS :0

Like you say - no rules.

It's like the Pirate's Code....more guidelines than actual rules!

If you do something and like the sound of it, keep it. Experiment.
