Modern music production - especially pop and EDM - has taken a step away from traditional and linear mixing conditions of the well-built studio. Good tunes are born on producers' laptops, on the road, during co-write sessions in writing camps, in bedrooms, living-rooms…
It is also a common trend for producers to mix their own productions instead of hiring a third party mixing engineer, so the song may never pass through ideal listening conditions and a fresh set of ears during its production.
This development of production methods has further emphasized the importance of mastering - the last check and processing in reliable listening conditions by a skilled professional is highly valued for a reason.
Sometimes, however, the problems arising from varying mixing conditions only emerge during the mastering phase, or perhaps final balances in the mix simply benefit from a fresh view.
STEM MASTERING combines mix-polishing and mastering into a single flexible service that adapts to support a modern producer in varying productions.
When your mix is mastered from stems, we can positively affect the result from deeper within - all the way to the finishing line.
Trough stems we have access to fix possible problems more accurately.
Most common problems are found in the low frequency range.
POLISHING THE MIX
We can further develop the sound of the mix if wanted.
For example, improving the vocal sound or fine tuning the final balances of the stems is possible.
SUMMING & MASTERING
Finally we sum the mix into stereo and master it.
EP, Album and DDP creation also possible.
Basic fee 50,00€ + hourly rate 100,00€ / h (+ VAT 24%).
Usually a single can be mastered within one hour, where the price would be 150,00 € + VAT 24% = 186€.
The service works efficiently online, but we can also book a specific time so you can join the session!
