Music Mastering

Mastering makes both subtle and strong changes to a record.

Listen for balanced low end, reduced harshness, better imaging, and vocal intelligibility.

I have tried to match the before/after levels for easy comparison.

Master for Two Reasons

REFINEMENT

Custom mastering reveals the details that help your songs sound impressive. It refines the Depth, Power, Clarity, BalanceShine, Groove, and ultimately the Meaning you’ve put so much time and effort into creating.

TRANSLATION

Mastering gets your music 100% ready for streaming, downloading, sales, and licensing. Good mastering means your music sounds like you expect it to on almost any playback system, including proper levels for streaming, CDs, and downloads.
