Audio Mastering

You create and arrange your music and then develop a plan for recording it. This is how your music production begins. The next step involves mixing your music in order to achieve balance and symphony – this in the sense of the original Greek symphonia, meaning “agreement or concord of sound”. This is what gives your work a form and a structure. Then we step in with our audio mastering, which enhances the sound and power of your music. This music production workflow has a long tradition – and rightfully so, as it’s proven to be quite effective and very successful.

You’ll be glad you used our audio mastering services

Only very few music mixes are already so balanced and consistent as to require only a tiny bit of polishing in the subsequent mastering process. For most productions, a series of important artistic and technical decisions need to be made in the mastering studio.

There’s good reason for this, since no other part of the music production chain offers the possibility to achieve the type of significant aesthetic sound enhancements that can be implemented in the mastering stage with relatively little effort by comparison. As one well-known sound engineer once said: “The painting is already hanging in the gallery – but we’re the ones who turn on the lights”.

Superb audio mastering significantly increases the value of your product at a very reasonable cost. This is nothing new to successful music producers and music labels – but it may be a piece of useful information for some. So, regardless of whether you’ve been in the game for a while or you’re just starting out, we can find a solution for you.

Our audio mastering enhances your sound

Our wealth of experience enables us to have a clear idea of what can still be done. We use our creativity and technical expertise to plan the further development of your project.

We smooth out tonal imbalances of individual tracks and bring out each track’s inherent strengths, thereby lending the album as a whole a uniform, powerful effect. We sharpen the aesthetic message of the entire work in line with the intention and mission of the artist.

Most people who listen to your production will have little or no idea of how much work went into achieving the perfect sound for your music. In other words, our mastering makes your music seem “totally normal” to listeners, which actually means that your music sounds completely natural, beautiful and powerful.

Our audio technology has charisma

What would an artisan be without their tools? We have procured a lot of equipment over the years, some of which we had to get rid of. What remains is a large number of our favourite tools which we like to work with and – judging by the results we achieve – also seem to like to work with us.

Our tool cabinet includes top analogue technology in a classic design and powerful state-of-the-art digital systems. Each and every machine is an exquisite piece of equipment that yields an exquisite sound – but only by bringing everything together can we achieve that exceptional sound that has made us so successful.

Our mastering philosophy

We always conduct our work in line with the artist’s vision – and we never violate the “unwritten laws” of the musical genres. At the same time, our job involves performing a balancing act, as we also need to focus on the expectations and listening habits of your target group or groups. Ignoring these aspects puts your success at risk. We also need to take into account the ways your music will be listened to, as well as the typical listening situations, and then make technical adjustments accordingly in order to ensure your music has the desired effect. After all, techno fans listen to their music in a context that is quite different from that of classical music lovers.

Our audio mastering improves your content

We use our creativity and technical expertise to transform a loose collection of unfinished music tracks, each with their own particular sound, into an outstanding work with a uniform character and a striking dramatic effect.

This is important, as sound, character and effect are actually the hidden ingredients for a consistent and impressive music product, one that your label can market successfully – and which your audience will love even more because it possesses such attributes.
