What is Mastering
Mastering - Duplication - Restoration
Mastering is often thought of as the first stage in the duplication process but it is equally true to call it the last stage in the creative process. Mastering may simply involve 'topping and tailing' the start and end of each track, matching volumes and adding the correct subcodes for the master CD. On the other hand, the mastering studio is where a dull, lifeless track can be transformed into something far better.
We are also able to offer CDROM and combined Audio/CDROM mastering.
See our What is Mastering page for more information.
