Why Master?

“Never lie in bed at night asking yourself questions you can't answer.” ― Charles M. Schulz

After mastering your music it will sound fuller, fatter, clearer, more detailed and more cohesive. On top of this it will help with making your mix translate more consistently on different playback systems which will save you the frustration, and embarrassment, of having a track sound different on each separate sound system that it is played on. Additionally, where an album has been completed over a period of time, or even at different studios, this process will give the product a degree of cohesion from track to track so as to make the album sound as one complete body of work.

Stem Mastering

“I can never lose my knowledge to you, probably you can gain my knowledge” ― J. Ruby

Stem mastering represents a medium between mixing and mastering. It is not a method that will suit the majority but can be beneficial in certain circumstances. e.g... An ITB mix that is completed to a level but could benefit from analogue summing before the mastering stage. This way, the final balance of the constituent parts can be adjusted to suit.

Benefits of remote mastering

"In a world that changing really quickly, the only strategy that is guaranteed to fail is not taking risks." ― Mark Zuckerberg

  • More affordable than the traditional attended service
  • Artist gets the opportunity to appraise the master on their own sound system that they are familiar with

Your mastering engineer will be constantly available on email, webchat and telephone to answer any queries and to take instructions on revisions etc.

What it Entails

The process....

  • Improved stereo imaging,

  • Frequency balancing to improve translation

Benefits of Analogue Mastering

It's better, it's quality....you need quality
