 What is Mastering ?

Mastering is the art of capturing the most of a musical performance and thereby faithfully rendering the artist vision. Mastering helps bridge the distance between the artist and the listener.

Moreover, mastering makes music compatible and competitive for the consumer market, so that each title sounds right on any kind of stereo system.

How is Mastering done ?

Mastering (aka Premastering) brings the various frequency levels of a music title into perfect harmony. Sub-bass, mid-range, presence, and hi-end are individually edited.

Multi-band compression, limiting and SPL maximizing are used to obtain the optimal sound level and perfect volume level (subjective audible volume level) of the different frequencies. The human ear hereby proves itself a particular challenge because it perceives various volume levels differently strong.

Mastering can also influence the stereo signal. Stereo balance, stereo spread and stereo phase are edited. This is to guarantee that nothing is erased, such as in the bass level, or when a title is heard in mono, or with a very large stereo base.

The beginning and ending of a title is cut exactly, or edited to turn a maxi into a single version.

Your mastering orders will be processed as quickly as possible, usually within 24 hours, but no later than 3 business days. The mastered files are accessible as downloads in the customer area.
