Stereo mastering is the final process before a song is released to the public. This is where levels are balanced, frequencies receive finishing touches, and any other problems with the mix are ironed-out. Files submitted for mastering should be in the highest resolution available, and generally in .WAV or .AIF format. Additionally, for the best possible masters, we recommend removing any pre-mastering processing such as limiting, and keeping the highest peak-level of each song at -3dB or less. This allow us enough headroom to best sculpt the dynamics and over-all sound of your songs. Finished songs are delivered as downloadable Redbook Standard WAV files.
