Mastering

 

Mastering is the final step in the production of your project. Mastering is invaluable to the translation of your project across a variety of listening situations, from an iPod with earbuds, to a hi-fi stereo system, to a car stereo system. Your project may sound very good but mastering will make it sound great, no matter where it is heard!

Listen to a sample of a song mastered here at Red Lines Audio:

Blanketship: Teen Sounds - Ramsey Denver

I can accept your project in several formats:

  • Red Book CD (standard professional CD)
  • 24-bit Super CD
  • Consumer grade CD-R or CD-RW
  • Audio files on DVD
  • WAV files
  • AIFF files
  • MP3 files

- Do not normalize your audio prior to mastering. The mastering process requires headroom in which to work. If your audio has been pushed to near maximum level without clipping, this will limit the amount of improvement that can be made to the sound, because even small changes can begin to result in distortion.

- Do not apply dithering to your audio.

- Leave your audio at the highest resolution you can. If your audio is burned to CD as audio, it is stored at 16 bit resolution. AIFF and WAV files can be 16, 24, or 32 bit resolution.

To master your project I will utilize high-end outboard gear as well as SoundTrack Pro software. You will get the best of both the analog and digital worlds. Analog warmth with digital precision, for ultra-high quality audio.

I can deliver your project master in several formats:

  • Red Book CD
  • 24-bit Super CD
  • WAV files
  • AIFF files
  • MP3 files
