The reason this is important is that it allows you go to back and make tweaks to a mix and have them automatically updated in the mastering project, without having to re-export a mixdown first. And while it's not ideal to need to change a mix (it should be as good as you can make it before mastering), it's good to have the option. In fact it could be as simple as changing the length of a fade in or out, not necessarily changing anything massive about the mix. But this feature cam save you some time. Check out the full course for a complete guide to mastering in Studio One 4.
