Description

Mastering is the finishing touch of music production. The main goal of mastering is to reach the industry standards of loudness, frequency response of a mix, and to prepare playback for all systems, formats, and platforms. Usually, mastering is done using a compressor, stereo enhancer, “EQ” and limiters.

Will mastering improve my sound?

Mastering is the process of finalization, and preparing the track for distribution. It will definitely help your music sound in industry loudness, equalization curve, etc. In some cases it will help improve your sound, but a mastering engineer can’t fix mixing mistakes. You can choose the Stem Mastering option if you feel that your mix needs help, but you don’t want to change a lot.

What is Stem Mastering?

Stem mastering is a process where a mastering engineer creates a final master using pre rendered buses as drums, bass, accompaniment, vocals and background vocals.
So in this case mastering engineer has more abilities to fix some mistakes and improve overall sound. However, I would certainly recommend working to get the mix to be as close to finished as possible, rather than adopt the “just fix it in post” attitude.

What is Mastering for iTunes and Mastering for Spotify?

Mastering for Spotify- mastering according to the requirements of Spotify. Mostly it’s about volume. It helps your track to sound better on Spotify, because a regular master can be over compressed in some cases for this platform.
Apple Digital Masters – they had a different format – AAC, which requires a different headroom and approach. This format provides the best audio quality to the customers. This add on is not applicable for regular iTunes release. Choose this option if you want to release your music with the Apple Digital Masters badge. Also the Apple Digital Masters file can’t be created in a simple mastering house. You need to master it at an Apple Official Mastering house.
We’re happy to say that Major Mixing is an Apple Certified Mastering House!
