What is mastering?

 

Mastering invoices taking your track, analysing it with a very critical ear in our mastering studio with the latest cutting edge monitoring and analysis tools. From here we will liaise with the client identifying any mix issues that need to be addressed before mastering. We will then take the premaster file and use a combination of techniques including full band and multiband compression, EQ, harmonic excitation, stereo imaging and limiting to bring your track up to the level it needs to stand up against the top tracks in the genre.

To give you an idea of what this means in audio term, here is a file pre and post mastering (post mastering at mastered level) you can really focus on the sonic difference between the two.
