Mastering

We specialize in digital Mixing and Mastering.


In addition to employing traditional mastering techniques, processes and tools, we have developed our own proprietary system:


De-Constructive Mastering ✭


Our proprietary technique and process enhances songs by incorporating new tonal and harmonic content into the mastered version.


The technique involves de-constructing the stereo mix into frequency "layers", analyzing the energy distribution in each layer, then (where necessary) generating additive content to balance the energy distribution. The additive content is either extrapolated from the original recording, or DSP generated. This is quite different from an EQ process, which simply adjusts the volume level of frequencies already present in the audio content.


Our technique adds body, richness and impact, and is particularly effective as both a corrective and restorative process.


De-Constructive Mastering is a time-intensive manual process. No templates, no automation, just meticulous attention to detail resulting in a superior master.


Our mastering process also incorporates:


  1. Noise removal

  2. Dynamic and transient enhancement

  3. Harmonic enhancement

  4. EQ and tonal balancing

  5. Stereo image enhancement

  6. 3D audio imaging

  7. Targeted loudness levels [EBU R128 and ATSC A/85]


Our masters are fully compliant with Apple’s Mastered for iTunes specifications.
