Mastering is an extremely important part of the audio engineering process, yet it remains something of a misunderstood art form to many. In its simplest definition; mastering adds the “finishing touch” to a song that makes it ready for distribution and radio or streaming play.
With the Sage Audio Mastering Blog and YouTube Channel, we’re putting together a collection of articles and video tutorials to help those who have questions about mastering. Tutorials will vary in subject, and range from the definition of mastering, to the differences between mastering for streaming vs. mastering for vinyl, to how to prepare your mixes for mastering, and many more topics concerning mastering.
But more than that, we want the Sage Audio Mastering Blog to be a resource for anyone interested in audio engineering. Therefore, we want to keep you up-to-date on the latest engineering techniques, new products, audio plugins, and really, any other subjects that strike us as something that musicians, producers, mixing engineers, mastering engineers, and anyone else in the music industry might be interested in.
Sage Audio focuses on providing mastering services for both independent and mainstream artists, and we want to make sure that each article or video we publish pertains to all individuals looking for in-depth experienced knowledge in the audio engineering industry. We’ll share any news we feel is important, and any new products that might help artists producers, mixing engineers, and mastering engineers create the best possible sound for their music.
We do this for the same reason we offer a FREE mastering preview for any prospective clients that haven’t previously worked with Sage Audio. It works like this: you upload your final mix through our easy-to-use upload system, and we’ll send you back a half-song mastered sample of your song.
While we strongly encourage you to listen to the before and after samples of songs provided on the Sage Audio homepage and the Samples page, the best way to hear what our mastering services can do for you is to hear a final master of your own song. Our unique high-quality mastering services are among the best in the industry, and we offer them a price that’s significantly less than other top-quality mastering studios.
