MASTERING

Online Mastering

We provide warm & brilliant masters. Our engineers are experienced industry professionals – intuitive, perceptive & have great attention to detail.

We have a no compromise attitude and only use high-end analogue gear to carry out all the important tasks, such as EQ & compression. We use surgical plugins where necessary to get to the areas analogue can’t. Our online mastering service is a no different in attitude of course. We have the tech to allow one to ‘dial in’ for free and listen in real time at high quality without any bespoke software, making online mastering attend-able!

  • Well maintained tape machines for mastering to & off tape
  • Attend your audio mastering session in person or online via a ‘listen in’ option
  • High end analogue & digital equipment used throughout

Universal Music

As well as the traditional approach to mastering, we also use ‘Mid Side’ mastering techniques both ‘in the box’ and in the analogue domain to ensure every possibility has been covered. Our high end analogue gear from names such as Manley & Neve are tasked with the heavy lifting, leaving the plug ins to shape audio more surgically. We use plug ins from Universal Audio, BX Digital, Waves, Fabfilter & many more.

We have legendary Westlake Audio monitoring along with Adam, Genelec, Auratone and other near-fields to check the mastering translates to all systems in mono & stereo. We can deliver in a variety of formats & they are Mastered for iTunes (iTunes Plus), DDP, 24bit/16bit masters & ISRC embedded broadcast wav’s. We have all the industry standard authoring software such as Sonoris DDP creator and K Scale/PPM metering.
