MIXING:

Mixing is the process of optimizing and combining multitrack recordings into a final stereo audio file. Relative levels are adjusted and balanced and various processes are applied to individual tracks, groups of tracks, and the overall mix. In stereo sound mixing, the placement of the tracks within the stereo field are also adjusted and balanced. Every mix is made up of hundreds of small decisions that shape the overall sound of the music and all mixes require attention to the same basic issues — balance, tone, dynamics, depth, and glue.

MASTERING:

Mastering will add the final polish, depth, punch, clarity, sheen, warmth, and crispness. During mastering, processing will be added to correct any frequency and dynamic issues that may have been missed during the mixing stage. The final level will also be adjusted to the appropriate level for your distribution medium. Mastering will also ensure that a good mix will translate well to all kinds of different playback devices, from phones to cars to clubs.
