Mastering Services

Enhance the source to achieve producer/artist aesthetic goals while making sure the master translates best to targeted markets.
 
Process
At least one stage of digital and one stage of analog processing are used.
Digital stages work with PCM audio, at least 2 times sample rate of the source with bit depth 64.
Output of the final analog stage is recorded in the native format of the master, thus no additional sampling rate conversion is required for the digital masters.
Analog only mastering is available.
 
The Audio Engineering Society (AES) and The Recording Academy (Grammy) recommendations for handling and delivery of audio masters are implemented.
