All our mastering hardware is stacked with access to the rear sockets so we can exclusively select the right equipment for the session with nothing in between, ensuring the cleanest signal path! This service needs to be booked in advance and is definitely our most popular solution.
The second studio, Studio 2, is a more stripped back solution offering the same high attention to detail but based more around a plug-ins system with select hardware. In an acoustically controlled environment with the same ATC monitoring as Studio 1, Studio 2 offers rates to unsigned artists and quick projects where the full weight of Studio 1 isn’t required.
Costings for a mastering session vary; we differentiate between individual track mastering (where each track to be mastered is treated independently) and project mastering (where a collection of tracks relate to each other and will be compiled into an EP or album, creating a consistency between levels and EQ). A more detailed explanation for both services is below.
