Mixing & CDR/CD Mastering
Once the project has been recorded it must get to market.

To demonstrate quality sound, the recording must be carefully mixed and professionally mastered. A good, clean mix of the audio tracks must be achieved before beginning the Mastering phase.

Ever-present clicks and pops, which may have occurred during the recording performance, must be removed. Editing techniques coupled with signal-processors are utilized to cleanse and equalize the audio tracks.

Before transferring the final-mixed audio tracks to CDR, it is necessary to increase the emotional intensity of the music. Like a coat of polish, Mastering makes the difference between a good sounding mix and a professional sounding master.

***Mastering*** can make a good recording sound excellent
"The last place where any sonic changes can be made"

The process of Mastering ranges from correcting mistakes made in the mix to preparing a recording for target listening environments.

Classical music requires high-quality monitoring, where subtle defects can be heard and subtle changes can be made to the final sound.

Todayís music needs solid consistent Loudness. The future of music isnít subtle dynamic twiddling; itís lots of low end and enough high-end, over-the-top, smashed-out Loudness with all dynamics destroyed.

"Itís important that you have the Loudest possible album,
& Mastering is where you get that"

Glass Mastering is part of the process before CD duplication begins.
