Editing and mastering: Many
musicians have home studios these days, but few have the equipment
or experience to produce a professional
sounding master. With our computer software and large selection of outboard
gear, we can
dramatically improve your home recordings.
During the editing process,
imperfections in the musicians' performance can be repaired or
replaced. Songs can be rearranged, lengthened or
Music can be transposed to another key, tempos can be
adjusted, and pitch
problems can be corrected.
During the mastering process, we add
the final polish to your mixes. Our system includes hardware like
the T.C. Electronics Finalizer 96k studio mastering processor, and software plugins by Waves, iZotope and Sony.
These tools are used to
optimize the dynamics of a mix, adding punch and clarity, while
maximizing levels in multiple frequency ranges. The linear phase
enhance overall tonal quality with zero phase shift, and the dynamic equalizer
sibilance and boominess. Also included are processors
that emulate analog tube "warmth" and tape saturation, as well as Spectral
Imaging to enhance the audio depth.
Mastering is then completed in Sony Sound Forge Pro computer software,
and CDs' are burned to red-book specifications with Sony CD Architect.
The mastering process is critical to a professional sounding
product. If you don't master your recording, it will SOUND like you
didn't master your recording.
