Digital Mastering

https://woodlands.studio/wp-content/uploads/2020/01/ws_img.jpg

At Woodlands studio, our mastering engineer will use state-of-the-art plugins to balance the sonic elements of a stereo mix and remove nasty frequencies so that playback is sounding perfect across all club systems as well as other media playback formats. Digital Mastering is the process of increasing the perceived loudness and clarity of your mix, all while using solely digital processing techniques. The primary difference between our Digital and Hybrid Mastering is the sonic characteristics created by their respective processing. Our Digital mastering service is typically very clean and we make sure that transients are preserved with only a little amount of harmonic generation occurring from the processing.  Digital mastering works great for those that wish for the clarity and transient response to be the utmost importance with warmth and character further down the list. 

With that being said, we ensure that your track sounds as it was intended, whether you’re playing it in your car, a cheap pair of headphones, on the radio or on a main stage at a Festival. This service is for artists and labels who are happy with their mixdowns and want to be able to play their tracks out in clubs, send off as promos, demos to labels or to be commercially ready as official releases. 1 master revision per track is inclusive of the fee if there are any issues/ mistakes are caused by us.

How to send your music?

  • Check your final mix with after a break and with fresh ears – tired ears won’t give you a proper mix reference.
  • Check you aren’t unintentionally clipping anywhere in your mix.
  • If you can, check your mix in mono and stereo and on different speakers
  • Make sure the level of your track peaks between -6db and -3db. If the overall sum of your tracks are above -3db; please rebalance your individual tracks in your project to hit these levels on your master output channel. Do not use your master fader to adjust to hit these levels.
  • Remove all plugins from the master output channel (ie Compression, Maximisers, Limiters, Tape emulators etc…).
  • When exporting/ bouncing, make sure dithering and normalising is turned off.
  • Leave some silence at the start and end of your track.
  • Allow reverb/ delays/ fx to play out at the end of the track when suitable
  • Send a 24bit WAV premaster of your track
  • Critically listen to your premaster before hand. Ensure that you are happy with the final result before the mastering stage. Don’t rely too much on the mastering engineer to ‘fix’ big issues and problems in your mix.
  • Once you are happy, please upload to WeTransfer using the link function or any other similar file hosting websites and paste the link in the order page for us to download. Do not send separate wetransfer emails.
  • Remember not to leave your tracks until the last minute of a deadline. Allow us enough time to master your tracks properly.
  • If you are ensure whether your track is ready, please use our ‘In-depth Feedback Service‘ before hand for further guidance.
