Many tracks that leave this studio go on to do very well in their respective industry; please check out our showreel (available on request). Our studio is perfectly equipped for all music styles; we use large mastering speakers (PMC) in a large treated room, allowing for accurate monitoring across the whole spectrum.
Please note, it’s often the case that a fresh pair of ears (combined with high definition monitoring and an acoustically treated environment) will spot things that may have been missed. If we feel the mix can be improved upon, we’ll provide you with a detailed report on how to get more out of your mix (deposit may be required for new customers).
What is Audio Mastering?
Audio mastering is widely considered to be the most crucial stage in the production process. It is the final opportunity to enhance or repair problems within a mix. This important last step of the production should be carried out by someone who is experienced and is familiar with the problems that may occur. An audio mastering engineer will have fresh ears and can provide an objective approach to a mix. Skilful use of compression and EQ will ensure maximum cohesion and punchiness through out the whole album. Carried out in an acoustically treated room with ultra high definition speakers, an audio mastering engineer can spot things that may have slipped through the producers net. The combined skill, experience and world class audio mastering gear will ensure the final product will translate well to a wide variety of systems.
Why get your audio mastered by TGM?
Having your audio mastered here will give it the power to stand out above the competition. We use some of the nicest analogue mastering gear available; please view the studio spec page.
We’ll give your mix that extra sonic power and a polished sheen, gelling your whole mix together. Class A analogue tube compression and EQ will give your music a rich, warm sound and a fat bottom end that you just can’t get from even the nicest software plugins. Our monitoring system enables us to understand how your music will translate to all other music playing systems, not all monitors can do this. Try TGM Audio Mastering, you’ll be glad you did.
If you’re mix is in need of improvement, in most cases, a detailed review with suggestions will get the mix to a suitable standard for us to begin mastering. We reserve the right to refuse to master audio that doesn’t reach a certain standard after steps have been taken to improve the mix.
