As the final step in the creative process, Mastering is every bit as important in making a consistently great-sounding album. During mastering we make sure that songs’ levels are uniform and consistent with a pleasing sound. It is here that we take care of problem areas like shrill highs, undefined mid-range, muddy bass and make smooth, clear and punchy tracks that sound good on any sound system.

Some of the things we do during the mastering process are:

  • Remove tape hiss, noise, clicks and crackles if needed.
  • Check left and right balance and correct any phase issues.
  • EQ where necessary and smooth out or correct any problem areas.
  • Apply compression, limiting and spatial enhancements.
  • Editing, track sequencing and timing.
  • Add fade-ins or fade-outs if needed.
  • Match all track loudness levels.
  • Enter in CD text.
  • Create a DDP Master for CD replication.
