Mastering

"I count myself as having been incredibly lucky to have worked with some of the most acclaimed mastering engineers in the world during over 20 years involvement in the recording industry and have no hesitation in putting Rob up there with the best of them."

Danny Ward, MoodyManc


Audio mastering is the process where the finer elements of raw sound recordings and unheard errors in the mixing process are corrected. It is also applied to various tracks within the same release package to make them a sufficient volume and minimise individual differences, for instance when they are released for retail as an album or EP.

A great track with a poor master can result in the track losing some of it’s potential. A great track with a GREAT master can give your music the impact it needs to stand out in the crowd!! Without proper mastering, your track might not reach it’s full potential. This is why it’s always good practice to have your music mastered properly at an established mastering studio that can fit within your current costs.

At the moment; many record labels try to make ends meet by cutting costs, which is understandable due to heavy file sharing across the internet and high-rising mastering costs from commercial studios; This unfortunately has resulted in an absence of in-house mastering with many labels, which in turn means that there is a huge difference in sound quality between labels & artists. This need not be the case.

Please inform us if you require urgent mastering. Please make sure that you're completely 100% confident with your mixdown before you send your track to be mastered. If your kicks are too loud, or your hats are too high, then the mastering will enhance this.

PLEASE make sure your mixdowns are done to the best of your ability and that you're satisfied before sending. There will be an additional £5 fee if mixdowns need to be altered post mastering and sent to be re-mastered. This is to cover the additional studio time spent remastering your material.
