What is mastering?

Mastering, actually pre-mastering, is the final step in the processing of audio material before it is put on a sound carrier, for example. The audio material at hand gets a better quality and the playback compatibility should be enabled on many devices.

Our support

We have made it our business to prepare your material and finalize it for possible duplication. My mastering chain takes place on a digital level. Through computer-aided software, we are able to bring the warm analog touch to your recordings. Besides the classic stereo mastering, we also offer the so-called stem mastering. With this type of mastering, your mix is divided into individual groups (tracks), such as vocals, rhythm, lead instruments and effects. This makes it possible to process the respective signals even more intensively and to achieve corresponding results.


Delivery of your mix

Ideally, the mix should be in an uncompressed data format.

Attention should be paid to this:

  • no limiters or mastering plug-ins that apply limiters/maximizers
  • leave a headroom of -3dB (headroom)
  • 24-bit audio file or higher
  • sample rate of 44.1 kHz or higher

In which format do we deliver the mastered mix back?

Unless otherwise agreed, we return the finished master in audio CD format (16-bit, 44.1 kHz). We can also deliver other formats upon request.

Is there also a mixing service?

We are happy to take care of the mixing for you. So already during mixing we pay attention to highlighting important frequencies, to interference signals, and to a balance of volume and stereo width.

Satisfaction is our concern

If you are not satisfied with our work, we will create alternative versions/corrections, depending on the package. Let us know what you don't like or what should be different. If you are not satisfied with the final result, you will get your money back.
