Our approach to mastering involves a strategy, developed over a long period of time. Put simply, we conceal the tonal imbalances in the piece of music and bring out its inherent strengths. We thus efficiently increase the euphony of each individual track and sharpen its aesthetic appeal. With these improvements alone, we are raising the quality of production to a higher level.
The key artistic challenge with CD mastering, however, is now to go beyond these improvements to the individual tracks and give the complete work a captivating album sound that is as distinctive as possible. After all, an artistically and aesthetically coherent album sound is one of the important ingredients for an exemplary-sounding and noteworthy CD release.
Now it depends on the creativity and skill of our sound engineer to spin this imaginary common thread along which the sound patterns of the individual tracks can be aligned. With his work he transforms a loose collection of music pieces, each with its own undetermined tone, into a smoothly flowing work with a unified sonic character and an effective dramaturgy.
