Music Mastering is the final stage in any production before it’s ready for release. It ensures your music will sound great on any system, making your recordings clearer, louder, wider, punchier, and more balanced. Whether your songs needs some subtle tonal and dynamic balances or mid-side multiband harmonic excitement and dynamics, they will leave polished and ready to compete in any market. With music being released primarily through digital downloads and streaming, and going to vinyl or cassette tape, it’s important that your masters meet a set of technical specification in order to be optimized for its target destination. When mastering music for digital release you must take care to prevent inter-sample peaks and ensure distortion is not introduced during file conversion. Your music will leave mastered for iTunes and ready for marketplaces such as Pandora, Spotify, Bandcamp, and more. Mastering for vinyl requires a different music mastering approach, leaving your masters more dynamic, with less hyped low end that is mono compatible to eliminate stereo low frequency needle jumps creating record skips.
