What is Mastering?
Mastering is a very important process in music production. It is also the last process the music goes through before its ready for CD replication and duplication. Mastering involves working with the stereo mix of a song only. This is where the final balancing is done to the song using professional mastered reference material to compare the levels of each range of frequencies. These ranges include low frequencies (20hz-150hz), low-mid frequencies (150hz-500hz), mid frequencies (500hz-2Khz), high-mid frequencies (2Khz-7Khz), and high frequencies (7Khz-20Khz). We use state of the art mastering software and gear to bring these levels to broadcasting standards.
