AUDIO MASTERING FOR DIGITAL

Mastering records demands a sharp attention to detail for a balanced listening experience across all playback systems. Professional mastering plays a crucial role in that final process of making a great record sound amazing! Whether releasing on CD, digital streaming platforms or both, quality mastering is key to dynamic, commercially competitive records.

AUDIO MASTERING FOR VINYL

Releasing on vinyl is still a great way to present music to your fans. A tangible release format that has stood the test of time and more recently has made a resurgence in a landscape where digital sales have increased and CD sales waver. If your looking to release an upcoming project on vinyl, we'll make sure your records are mastered to the correct specifications for the perfect cut.

STEM MASTERING AND MIX FEEDBACK

In need of a fresh set of ears for feedback on current music you have in the works? Audio advice is always free. From recording, production, mixing & mastering don't hesitate to reach out. We also accommodate stem mastering. A process of taking multiple buss stems (up to 8 groups) and mastering down to a 2 track file for delivery. For more information get in touch HERE.
