Mastering is the final step in bringing your recording to its optimum potential. It gives your music the professional commercial quality necessary to compete nationally and globally. No matter if your audio is planned for radio, CD/cassette duplication, CD Rom/ DVD authoring or publishing to the world wide web, it must be mastered to take full advantage of the media in which it is to be released.
We use industry standard plugins that you most likely don't have access to. Being certified in ProTools, WAVES, Melodyne, and Autotune gives us a better advantage as well. You will always have the input on the sound you're going for and we promise to make it happen or your money back!
Mixes are usually mixed completely then we rest our ears for a day and come back for anything we've missed, before the mix is finalized, we will send you the mix in WAV format for your review, if any changes will be made we will make them and send the mix back, this process repeats until you confirm the mix is complete. Masters are tested on over 2 pairs of high end monitors and numerous sound systems such as an iPod (mp3 player), car stereo, Laptop speakers and a boom box, to make sure you are getting the best possible sound on every playback device!
