Post Production

We understand that nowadays many musicians now have the ability to record their own music to a high standard using their own MAC/PC and a few decent mics, which makes sense, especially for those on a budget. There is however no substitute for experience in getting a good mix and mastering your tracks for the final CD to get a polished finished product. We hear many "DIY" band recordings sent to us that, although the recording of individual instruments is fine, the mix just doesn't do it any justice which is primarily down to a lack of experience in post-production techniques.

We would strongly advise getting your recorded tracks mixed and mastered professionally, and it is often good to get the perspective and opinion of somone outside of the band who can be objective to the music and non-biased towards levels of specific instruments, and also offer suggestions of arrangements and instrumentation of the song....something you may not have even considered !

We are happy to take on projects at any stage to their completion. Please feel free to contact us for advice and to discuss how we can help you turn an average recording into a great one !

We can professionally master your completed song(s) to bring them to life and compile your final Master ready for duplication to CD or vinyl. We have specialist equipment and plenty of experience in the mastering of audio to ensure that your final production master is improved considerably.

Dont scrimp on this aspect of your project, as it really can make a huge difference, not only in the tonal quality, but ensuring that your music comes to life and sounds great on all audio systems. If you're not convinced, we'll be happy to give you a sample of one of your tracks and let you hear the difference for yourself !

The mastering process includes:

  • Repairing any glitches, peaksor obvious defaults in audio that may be of concern
  • EQ of all tracks to ensure they sound great on a range of audio systems, and to ensure that the 'tone' of the compiled tracks is consistent throughout.
  • Multiband compression to add warmth, character, energy and level the various frequencies of the audio tracks. Helps to iron out any frequency heavy areas of concern and can bring out individual instruments and vocals in the mix.
  • Normalising and limiting to ensure that your final master plays at a decent level without clipping.
  • Compilation of all tracks for master CD adding pauses, crossfades and effects as required.
  • Creation and testing of a final production CD master ready for duplication

Highly recommended for all completed mixes. View our mastering rates
