I am new to producing and was wondering if someone can please explain to me what mastering is.

I see of a lot of tracks stating in the title "unmastered", and am just curious as to what it means, and how you go about mastering a track.

Mastering is the final mix down. In basic terms, it's fine tuning of the mix. The eq gets a tweak and basically a compressor and limiter get thrown on to make it full and loud. You'll notice an "unmastered" mix will sound a little dull and quiet? The mastered mix will give it some life
