What is the difference between Mixing and Mastering?
Think of mixing the way you think about putting a puzzle together just right. We take all the parts you have recorded and make sure they fit perfectly with one another. We’ll do things like adjust fades, add in effects, EQ the tracks etc… When we are finished mixing your song, we guarantee you’ll be happy with the way it sounds, and confident that it is musically complete.
Mastering takes a professionally mixed song and enhances it to the highest level. This fine-tuning will make your song sound bigger and clearer than you ever thought possible. All this is done with the goal of maximizing the quality of your song, without compromising the intended feel of the song. Mastering prepares your recording for streaming services, radio play, and makes an album sound unified as a whole.

Why should I have my audio mastered?
Mastering is the final, and necessary, step to bring your recording up to a professional standard. Optimizing your music through the mastering process is necessary to stand out on a global scale. Whether your music is intended for radio play, CD duplication, or play through streaming services, it must be mastered to be competitive
Why do I need a professional to master my project?
Mastering engineers develop a precise sense of sound and musicality that is necessary for professional mastering. Having a fresh set of ears listen to, and master your song, is another huge advantage of hiring a professional mastering engineer. Listening to a track without having heard it many times before, allows the engineer to be truly objective when making decisions to maximize the quality of sound.
