Can I do the mixing and mastering myself?

You definitely can do it, however, do not set your expectations high. It takes many years to develop the skills and there is a reason why top mixing engineers are the highest paid in the music industry. It’s almost the same like when we do work around the house, like renovations, instead of hiring professionals to do it. It is definitely cheaper, but it will never be as good as professionals can do it, because they spent many years doing it, and they have the right tools. The learning curve for mixing and mastering engineers is a very long a difficult one. On top of it let’s not forget how important are the acoustic space- the room, the monitors and the equipment. If you want your songs to sound like those on the radio or commercial CD’s then you better look for people with experience and the right tools and space.
