The Art of Mastering
Mastering is a critical
step before pressing a CD. It requires a dedicated listening environment
with calibrated acoustics and specialized equipment.
Mastering is more than just putting the
songs in order and inserting spacing between songs. Tools such as
compression, EQ, and noise reduction are used to ensure that the
sound is optimized for a variety of listening devices such as car
radios and home stereos.
There is as much art as science involved
in the process, given the wide tonal range that can be achieved
in the CD format.
Mastering adds punch and polish, making
your music sound its best.
