I don't want to sound like a noob or like I'm leeching info, but I'm not really getting the hang of how to go about mastering my tunes properly - I can make them sound pretty loud, but at the same time losing some of the dynamics of the track. It's strange, because I'll have a track where the raw mix sounds awesome, but once I put a mastering tool on it (e.g. Maximus or in FL) or multiband compressors the snare will become muddy, lost in the mix, and so will other elements of the track, while sounding awesome in the raw mix itself. So how would I go about mastering my tune without losing the dynamics of the original mix? Cheers, appreciated.
