and make your songs ready to compete with other professional releases.

Mastering process :
Every project is unique and deserve dedicated mastering process, so it would be difficult to sumarize or generalize it, but here are some basic things that will be checked and improved when needed :
Spectral balance, dynamic range, overall perceived loudness, stereo width, phases issues, Mid/Side processing, noise reduction, and more…
Your own point of view will also be taken in consideration, so feel free to get in touch or leave a message on the upload form to talk about your expectations, give some direction or even name some reference records if it can help.
