Professional and Affordable Mastering for the Independent Musician
Mastering is the final step in the audio production process before duplication and distribution. It’s the last chance to give the album that final ”professional polish”. The mastering engineer provides an unbiased/fresh pair of ears and their experience to bring your project to its full potential. Once mastered, your project will sound fuller, richer, louder, and become a cohesive unit that translates more consistently from one playback system to another.
Includes audio leveling, dynamics, and equalization adjustments; noise removal; fades/crossfades; and track sequencing & spacing. Mastered material can be used to generate a CD Master, Mp3s/digital files intended for internet distribution, or a vinyl pre-master.
