Music Mastering Services
Mastering is the final stage in music production before it goes out to the public, but not only to make your music louder. The purpose of mastering is to ensure your music translates on all playback systems, to give the best possible listening experience and chance to compete in today's competitive market.
Mastering often includes tonal balance, dynamic control, adding clarity, excitement and sometimes a little bit of reverb.
If an artist/mixing engineer has spent a long time working on a song, it is recommended that the mastering is done by an engineer who has never heard the song before and hasn't exhausted their ears listening to it.
If your songs are for an album and each one has been recorded/mixed at a different place and time, it is the mastering engineer's job to make sure that it is consistent throughout.
A long story cut short….
Back in the early 2000s, I (Tim) started making beats for Hip Hop music, but I was never able to make them sound as loud and professional as my favourite commercial releases. Later on, I discovered that there is another stage of production to go through “The Mastering Stage”. Having made many attempts to master them based on how I had come to understand it, the time had come to take things to the next level and learn how to do it right.
I have done two music production courses, one of which taught me about different production techniques including Mastering, which I found to be the most interesting part.
Having picked up on a lot of new habits and made many further attempts at Mixing and Mastering my own music, I was starting to get the results I wanted.
A few years later, I felt the need to come out of my comfort zone and start to master music by other artists - I decided to take another course that covered only Mastering.
Continuing to practice on what I had learned and to better my understanding, the time had come to start offering my services.
hfMASTERING was born.
