So what is mastering?

Every major label release is mastered to prepare it for radio airplay and retail sale. The reason? In the studio songs are generally recorded one at a time, resulting in album tracks leaving the mixing room with different output levels and varied EQs. A good mastering engineer can unify your album with skillful use of EQ, gain, and compression to give it a consistent sound from track to track. This process also allows the engineer to optimise the overall volume of the finished recording so that it sounds as big and impressive as possible, as well as adding Meta Data such as CD text and ISRC codes if required.

Mastering is always subjective and different styles of music often require a varied approach in the mastering suite. A good mastering engineer can make the difference between a good-sounding CD and a great one. With over 25 years of experience in this field we can help you achieve what you want in getting the best out of your recording, so that it stands out against other releases in the commercial marketplace.
