Audio Mastering for Your Music

​Stereo Mastering

Mastering stereo files is the most common service we provide to labels and artists.  When submitting fies for mastering, please send us the highest sample rate and bit depth for the project without up-sampling.  Please allow 3 to 6 dB of headroom and avoid using master bus compression or limiting.  These guidelines will definitely produce the best results.  

Tracks submitted via the internet should be in the WAV or AIF format.

Stem Mastering 

Stem Mastering is a great option for challenging songs that need an extra scoop of love. Breaking the song into stereo sub-groups (or stems) allows the most flexability to process each stem to meet its particular needs.  For instance, heavy compression on the bass with light processing on the keys, or de-essing the vocals and adding stereo width to the drums.  We accept up to 8 stem groups per song.

Mastering is the last creative step before your music reaches

your audience.


The goal of mastering is to make songs similar in tone and relative to each other in loudness; to focus the emotional flow of your music to the listener whether you're going for serenity or excitement.
​
Your songs should be EQ-ed to sound great on the majority of play-back systems, and at a level that enhances the emotional impact of your music (loudness for the sake of being loud isn't always better) creating a unified artistic statement
 competitive with a majority of other products in your chosen genre currently being embraced by consumers.  

There is no one formula for mastering. 

Each project requires something different.  Our greatest skill is sensitivity to your vision. 

Along with great ears, great gear, and a fresh perspective, it's about helping an artist maximize their impact.

Mastering can make a collection of songs become a sonically and emotionally unified artistic work.  We've done Album Mastering for Acoustic - Jazz - Punk - Funk - Hip Hop - Pop - Rock - Metal, and everything in-between.  We work closely with our clients and the project is not complete until you are 100% satisfied.
