Stem Mixing & Mastering

Looking to take your mix a step further, or perhaps add some analogue warmth and punch? With releases on imprints such as Infuse, Desolat, EWax and Berg Audio, our engineers have a depth of knowlege on different production techniques and are here to help you enchance your productions.

When ordering stem mastering, rather than sending a stereo bounce, a client could alternately deliver “stems” which the mastering engineer can use to create the final master.


Both result in one final stereo file, ready for distribution; however, each results in slightly different sonic characteristics and can be better suited for certain scenarios.


Stem mastering can also be considered a “halfway” house between the stem mixing and stereo mastering.

Stem mixing is a method of mixing audio material based on creating groups of audio tracks and processing them separately prior to combining them into a final master mix.

Format Of Mix Options:

  • Digital Master - 16/24bit 44.1/96khz WAV/MP3 for vinyl/digital/streaming distribution.

  • Analog Master - 24bit 44.1/96khz WAV in high resolution

  • Analog Summing - 4/8 channel groups or full track mixdown

  • Digital Mixdown - (no limit of channel mix)

Pre Master Specs

Please ensure that the kick and bass are separate (preferably in mono) group elements as follows:

- Kick

- Bass

- Percussion (rims, toms)

- Snare / Clap

- Top elements (Hats, shakers)

- Vocal

- Synth

- Chords

- FX

  • Stems should be exported individually without processing (except for FX), not through the master bus.

  • 44.1kHz sample rate (minimum) / 16 or 24bit (24bit preferred).
