GIVE YOUR MIX THE FINAL TOUCH
Mastering is the final touch after the recording and mixing process. It is utilized to "polish" and enhance your mix to their fullest potential and give them that competitive edge that artist and record labels rely upon in a demanding music market. It makes your mix cleaner, punchier, adding "warmth" and "air" to your sound.
I offer the highest-end digital processors to master your material without the risk of sonic degradation. Whether your recording needs a lot of attention or just a few tweaks, you can be assured it’s going to get the final touches it needs and deserves.
PRO MASTERING BENEFITS:
Sonically enhance, improve and, when needed, even repair your tracks through the use of precision monitoring, EQ, compression, limiting, and noise removal techniques.
Improve how compatible and versatile your tracks are, so that your music will sound its best whether it is heard on a high-end stereo system or a pair of earbuds.
Increase the average volume level of your tracks while still retaining your music’s inherent dynamics.
COHESION AND SEQUENCING
Give your album a great flow. Put the tracks in running order and customize the spacing between songs while keeping the volume level relatively consistent from track to track.
