MASTERING

The mastering process allows you to perform final adjustments on your stereo mixdown. Some adjustments are made to improve a particular song’s sonic quality. A good mastering engineer brings a new perspective to your song or album. When you are in the midst of recording your project, you will concentrate on one song at a time. The result is that your mixes will contain subtle differences: the peak levels will be slightly different; the EQs for each song are different, etc.

As a mastering engineer, I will look at the album as a whole, and try to bring unity. My goal is to achieve a consistent sound and to make it sound the way you want on any home stereo system. I will also be able to raise the overall level so that your CD is as “hot” as any major label release with as fewer artifacts as possible.
