About Mastering: 

Mastering is the finishing touch to your mix giving it the punch, air, sheen, subconscious drama - whatever the song or album calls for to make it the most finished product it can be. We specialize in mastering and have been doing it for years. We have both the gear and expertise to take your mixed project to the next level. Many think mastering simply means louder and yes tracks are indeed louder after they have been mastered. Mastering is much more than that though. Besides volume, mastering should give a nice balance from track to track. Mastering should also improve upon the depth, width, and clarity of the songs. Most importantly, mastering should solidify the listener's connection to the song.
