Once you’ve approved the mix(es) we then take the stereo file(s) and process them to ensure that they are tonally and dynamically consistent. This is especially critical when tracks have been recorded and mixed at different times and/or at different studios.
In addition – there is often final equalization, compression, widening and other processing applied to give the mix(es) that final finishing touch to give it that “record“ sound.
Once the tracks have been cleaned up, finalised and sequenced as necessary, we deliver a DDP master ready for duplication or whichever combination of formats are required.
We now offer stems mastering at the same price as regular mastering and are encouraging all our existing and new clients to take this approach as it almost always yields superior results.
In order to have your tracks mastered using stems, we request delivery of the stems in the following way:
1. Bass Parts
4. Everything Else
If you have questions about how to deliver the stems, then please get in touch.
