What is mastering?

Mastering takes an audio mix and and brings it to distribution-quality. It’s the final step to balancing your mix, unifying sonic elements, and optimising playback response for all file formats and devices. Mastering typically consists of a series of subtle audio processes including stereo enhancement, compression, equalisation, and limiting. It’s the vital connection between your hard work as a creator and radio-ready sound quality.

Just think of it as gift-wrapping your tracks for the rest of the world to hear!
