We prepare mastered audio files for analogue releases (e.g. cassette & vinyl) and digital formats (e.g. CD Disc Description Protocol, high-resolution content delivery for online distributors (including MFiT). We also master audio tracks for STEMS format.
Generally speaking, mastering is balancing and adjusting audio levels, dynamics, and equalization amongst the tracks; creating fades and crossfades between playlist tracks; and sequencing/spacing an album. Mastering shouldn’t be about only making tracks sound louder, but about making them sound nicer, fuller, with a distinctive tonal character: " like a record," as the saying goes.
Our turnaround time is usually 3 - 5 business days from the time pre-master audio files are delivered.
