FAQ

 

Why should I have my audio mastered?
Mastering is the final step in bringing your recording to its optimum potential. It gives your music the professional commercial quality necessary to compete nationally and globally. No matter if your audio is planned for radio, CD/cassette duplication, CDRom/DVD authoring or publishing to the world wide web, it must be mastered to take full advantage of the media in which it is to be released.

 

Why does my project needs fresh ears?
After working on countless songs and albums, mixing and mastering engineers develop an acute sense of sonic and musical knowledge that is key to successful projects. It’s also a huge plus that the engineer wasn‘t there when you recorded your album. Hearing your songs for the first time, a fresh pair of ears can offer truly objective advice.
