As the final step in the creative chain, mastering is a crucial process that can make or break a record.
A well mastered track can be a joy to listen to in any listening environment. We've all heard those unfortunate examples of brick-wall limiting that ruin a great mix, rendering a track LOUD, but practically unlistenable. We've also all heard those recordings that fall on the other end of the spectrum: unmastered (or poorly mastered) recordings tend to fall flat when compared to their properly mastered contemporaries.
We go to great lengths to avoid these pitfalls of mastering. Through a meticulous process of selective frequency carving, gain staging, and a combination of subtle compression and expansion, we deliver a lively and delightful master track. The finished product is full of sonic integrity: competitively loud, yet punchy and detailed, highlighting nuance and delivering that "gelled" sound that you only get from a well-mastered track.
We deliver files in multiple quality levels: CD quality (for the manufacturer), super-fidelity files (for audiophiles and for delivering to online distributors such as BandCamp and TuneCore), and high-quality mp3s (for easy listening and sharing).
Our rates are very competitive, and our turnaround time is quick. Contact us for more info.
