Mastering

Stereo mastering is an essential part of the music creation process. For most clients a stereo mix is provided online. Easy as that. 

How to prep your mix for export

Take your time to have a good listen to the track to make sure everything is mixed to your liking.

A few basic guidelines:

  • Aim for peak levels between -12 and -3db.
  • The bass and bass drums are two instruments that are key to solo together to ensure they are balanced and not stepping on each others range.
  • Turn off all compression and limiting on the master channel.
  • If your DAW has an option for dithering turn this off.
  • Render as WAV, minimum 16 bit 44.1khz. No mp3s please.
  • Ensure that nothing clips during playback.
