What is Mastering?
Mastering is the final studio step before the manufacture of CD's and vinyl albums.
This is achieved by contouring the EQ and overall dynamics (the difference between the loudest and quietest points in a recording) to make the production sound richer with a deeper quality for its final medium.
Liquid Mixes can make the difference between a good and a great record by polishing what is already there and providing a professional finish to your project
Exporting your track for Mastering
Sending your track for Mastering
Send us your song as DATA on a CD-ROM preferably 24-bit 44.1 Hz in WAV or AIFF format.
You can also simply send us your audio CD and we will convert it into the proper format for you.
Here are a few key things to keep in mind when preparing your songs for mastering :
- The recording should NEVER hit or go above 0.0dBFS (Full scale)
- Keep the level down to -3 to -6dB so that you don't run the risk of audio distortion
- Turn off any dynamics processing,compression and/or limiting on the master output
Upon completion Liquid Mixes will provide you with a link to the MP3 of the mastered song for approval.(note - more than one revision per song will incur an additional charge)
When you are 100% satisfied with your song you can make payment via, cash, PayPal or bank transfer.
Reference masters will then be returned electronically or via post.
