Mastering engineers control not just the stereo mix but also the individual balance. It is the last stage of mastering process, which comes after recording and mixing the song. The mastering engineer works by listening to the sound with fresh ears and adding a new perspective to the whole song. A good mastering engineer can make out where the song needs fine-tuning by simply listening to it. The master engineer listens to the track and increases the volume wherever necessary.
