What is mastering?

As you may (or may not) know, Mastering is the last step of the music production phase. It’s the last 10% of the process that glues your project together sonically with the use of different sonic and dynamic processing. It’s what transforms amateur sounding mixes to professional sounding music.

Here are some artists that our engineers have mastered.
