We'll take your studio mix and your brief and apply our ears, our experience and the latest in mastering technology. We believe in retaining as much dynamic range as possible and we favour a return to sensitive mastering rather than competing for loudness. We'll endeavour to make your mix the very best it can be. Once you've checked out you will recieve an email on how to upload your files.
Tips on how to supply your mixes
leave ideally -6dB of head room in your mix
remove any final limiting - over crushed loud mixes leave no room for manoeuvre
Supply files in the original recorded format, no need to down sample, or reduce bit rate. The mastering engineer will do this as the final step.
Stem mastering is where stem tracks are supplied to give the engineer more control. Stem tracks are groups of similar tracks combined e.g. strings, percussion etc. and are usually the product of a mixer's bussed tracks groups.
Note: Stem mastering is limited to max. 8 stems.
