Simply put, mastering is the art/science of applying the same tools used during the mixing process of your music to the song as a whole. The tools are the same, but the process is different since every action is applied to every instrument and track. We try to make sure that details are present without being harsh – that the song feels warm without being muddy. Most importantly that each song feels the way it is supposed to. We approach songs with the ears of a musician. We also understand the need for modern music to be competitive with other music in the marketplace. With todays modern equipment, there’s no reason why recordings produced outside major label studios can’t compete right along side them.
