What is mastering and how do I master a CD?

Mastering is a process where you take an entire project and make it sound polished. Yes, you can master one song if needed but generally it is the whole CD is what is mastered.
Mastering a CD includes the following:
*Eliminate unwanted noise and hiss in between tracks.
*Overall EQ
*Raise the overall level of the CD
*Making sure the level of each song is the same as the next one.
*Adding IRSC codes (Needed for digital distribution. ISRC codes are a simple numbering system so you get paid for digital music sales)

A mastering engineer will make sure the overall sound of the CD flows nicely.
