Mastering Before/After Sample:

[This is an A/B sample to show the difference between a mix and the final mastered version. The mix has been normalized to peak at the same -0.1 db level as the mastered version, so the difference in volume is in the perceived loudness from dynamic compression in the mastering process, not a difference in peak level.]
