Mastering in an essence is making a track sound the best it can be (that doesn’t mean just making it louder and brighter.) My mastering mindset often employs what I call the three C’s - Corrective, Creative and Coherent.
- Corrective: Fixing any mix issues ensuring your music sounds good on all systems and in all formats;
- Creative: Having a shared vision with the artist, band or producer;
- Coherent: Making all tracks sound unified.
This approach, united with experience, results in clients being blown away by the difference a skilled mastering engineer can make. I welcome the opportunity to be working with you in making great music.
