The traditional way to get a great sounding master is usually to send your mix off to a dedicated mastering engineer. Since we run a company which specialises in mastering records, we are all for this approach :). On the other hand, since the interest is so high we are also happy to educate others. What we have noticed ourselves is that there is always more to learn. Our way of working today looks completely different from when we started in the early 2000s.

Over the years, we have noticed a growing interest for mastering music. As the technology is now available more broadly, we see that many engineers want to educate themselves on this part of music production. We firmly believe that learning about mastering will help you to create better sounding mixes from the start. It also helps you to evaluate your master by knowing what to listen for.
