What is Mastering?
As the final step in the creative process before manufacturing, mastering is the art and technique of preparing your music for replication by altering, defining and taking control of your music's final mix. Mastering allows the engineer to enhance the overall sonic presentation, polishing each song and realizing your music's full potential, all the while bringing the various pieces of your album together. Shaping it and applying corrective equalization and dynamic enhancement to bring the producer and artists‚ vision resolute, creating consistency in volume and sound.
