Studio Mastering Services and CD/DVD Duplication
The term “mastering” is commonly misused, misunderstood, and misquoted. Mastering can and does mean a variety of things. The simple explanation is that it means taking a mixed recording and making it polished and ready for whatever medium it is designed to land on. This could be CD, DVD, MP3, YouTube, Television, Radio, etc. And, the process will differ slightly depending on the medium where you intend for your project to land.
While Sound Pure is not a specialized mastering-house, many of the necessary mastering processes can and do happen here. We have some of the greatest outboard analog mastering EQ’s and compressors available on the market, as well as one of the largest possible arrays of digital tools and plug-ins for endless automation, restoration, and whatever other processing will be needed for your project. We also possess the professional tools designed to produce compliant CD and DVD masters. The level of quality of our digital and analog tools do rival some of the top mastering facilities, and though we do not focus nor specialize in mastering, we can produce high quality results at very reasonable costs.
In some cases, however, where a higher budget is available, mastering at one of our affiliate purpose-built mastering studios is preferred, and of course you can always take it to any studio of your choosing. Sound Pure does have a short list of preferred mastering studios and respective engineers who continue to produce consistently high quality work for us, and who we consider to be operating at the top of their game. Because Sound Pure’s affiliate mastering houses do typically charge substantially more than Sound Pure for this work (since our mastering rates are the same as our overall studio rates), Sound Pure may present you with a less expensive but nevertheless good alternative for mastering your project.
While mastering is typically a service that we offer to in-house to our tracking/mixing studio clients, mastering is also available for those outside clients who are looking to improve on their finished, un-mastered mix, and produce a reliable and compliant source CD ready for mass-duplication at a lower cost than at a purpose-built mastering studio with a named engineer. We gladly welcome inquiries and questions about mastering, and whether or not you have the budget or need to have your project mastered in-house, or at one of our affiliate mastering studios.
