I know just how you feel.
When I decided to switch from mixing to mastering around 2000, I found Brad on the old Rec.Aud.Pro. He was, and continues to be, an amazing source of solid info and encouragement.
Go get 'em T.!

The one thing I hate about going to the Dr or dentist is it's, "hi how are you" and then on to business.  I encourage and enjoy clients arriving 5 or 10 minutes early to talk about the wives, kids and life in general and get comfortable.  Because once I start importing, listening and working on their tracks I'm "zoned in" and become pretty intense.  Having good coffee is also mandatory, but sometimes I forget to brew up enough ahead of time.

Tell us how your session goes!

Congrats!

It's really a people business, audio mastering is the service we provide.

It went really well. We're having guests for Easter, but I'll give more details when I have the chance. Client is happy, but I think I'm going to make some mods to the high end to make it PERFECT. Smile

Congrats. Big step. My only complaint about attended sessions
is that I have to keep my pants on.

I remember my first attended session and how scared I working with my first "real" client. A It was fun and the client was well pleased. I still have the album on my wall as a reminder of where I started.

Best of luck and what everyone else has said....

Thanks, everyone.  I'm waiting on the client before submitting to the plant.  

Yeah, I had to wear pants.  I don't know that I have too many interesting details about the goings-on during the session, but I will say that it was good that I was prepared, knowledgeable about my setup/software/hardware, and just chilling out at the restaurant down the street for lunch put a nice break in the middle of the day.

She already converted one song to mp3 and posted it on her Myspace.  All that hard work down the drain. : )

Just kidding.  Kinda.

And I just had my first request for mastering work on my Myspace page.  

Here's to hoping the organic growth continues.

Man, I hate Myspace.
