Mastering

Song mastering

Song Mastering is the process of taking a recording and enhancing it to it’s fullest potential. It’s the fine tuning that will make your final mixdowns sound as big and clear as possible without compromising the original feel of the final mixes. This not only makes each song from an album sound individually the best it can, but also makes the album as a whole sound professional and radio ready.

Do I really need song mastering?

If your asking yourself “Do I really need to get my songs or album mastered”, the answer is YES!, every album can benefit from professional mastering. If you say “But it’s just a demo!”, it’s even more important for a demo to sound it’s best. If you are duplicating a CD that’s supposed to be getting you gigs, of course you want it to sound great! Remember you only get one chance to make a great first impression. 

How to get your files ready for our song mastering services

  • To get the absolute best possible results, do not process your stereo mixdowns. This includes using no compression, limiting, and EQ on your master track. We cannot undo any mistakes that where done.
  • Please do not let the peak level of your master bus go above -3dB. If your are hitting 0db at your final mixdown, your pushing the levels too much. The optimal peak levels should be between -10dB to -3dB. We need room for our audio mastering processes.
  • Keep the sample rate and bit depth at its original format. We accept Wave files and AIFF files. Mp3’s are okay, but Wave files and AIFF Files are better suited for mastering. Be sure to include any “ISRC” codes if you have any for your songs to be mastered.
  • PLEASE DO NOT SEND US YOUR ENTIRE PROTOOLS, FL STUDIO, CUBASE or LOGIC recording sessions, ONLY YOUR FINAL MIXDOWN WAV OR MP3 FILES!

Sending us your audio online
Note: If your file is 25 mb or smaller, I would suggest sending it by regular email (gmail, yahoo, etc:)
         but if it is larger than 25 mb then proceed to step 2 below after step 1. Using google drive can also be an option.
