Vinyl / Digital Format
Mastering is the final step in the audio post production process.
The purpose of mastering is to balance sonic elements of a stereo mix and to optimise playback across all systems and media formats.
Mastering also ensures uniformity and consistency of sound between multiple tracks on an album.
We master to radio / club / streaming quality ensuring the final product is ready for distribution.
