The Benefits of Mastering a Song

For The Public

It is essential that you have the final mix mastered by a professional engineer. Songs should meet the criteria for different distribution methods such as streaming platforms, CD, radio and vinyl.

Stand Out

Loudness is usually enhanced when mastering. It is important though to consider that making a song louder lowers the dynamic range, thus making your song less engaging and even tiring.

Polish The Mix

It is important to get your final mix mastered professionally to apply the finishing touches. Changes are both creative and corrective and can take your great sounding mix to the next level.

Stem Mastering

Stem mastering is a type of mastering that involves separating the mix of a song into its individual stems (such as drums, vocals, and instruments, effects) and mastering each stem separately before recombining them.

How Does Mastering Work?

Pre-Production

  1. Get in touch and send your song to Garage Studios.
  2. Deliver a brief outlining what you would like the engineer to do.

Mastering

FAQs

Mastering is the final step in the music production process, and it involves fine-tuning the mix of a song or album to create a cohesive and polished final product.

A mastering engineer is a specialist who has the knowledge and expertise to adjust the levels, EQ, and other technical aspects of the music to achieve the desired sound. They listen to the mix and make adjustments as needed to improve the overall sound quality and balance.

Stem mastering is a type of mastering that involves separating the mix of a song or album into individual stems (such as drums, vocals, and instruments) and mastering each stem separately before recombining them into a final mix.

While it is technically possible to master your own music, it can be difficult to achieve professional results without the proper knowledge, skills, and equipment. Mastering is a specialized field that requires a trained ear and specialized software and hardware.

When delivering your music for mastering, it is important to provide the highest quality mix possible. You should also provide a reference track or tracks to give the mastering engineer an idea of the sound you are aiming for.

Testimonials

Amazing studio, Sam is an amazing producer and great to work with! Quick and efficient, recorded two tracks and can’t wait to record more! Fun experience and I felt very welcomed recording and spending days in the garage studios! Definitely recommend :)

Fiona Lennon

I have recorded drums at Sam Hepworth's studio several times and each time I have been impressed by his professionalism. Sam makes you feel completely at ease, and with his expertise, work get gets done very efficiently. This is obviously very important while recording as you want to get several good takes to make sure every base is covered but without taking up excessive time. Sam has great prices and works to an excellent turn around time scale. Highly recommended!
