Hi, I produce beats for, and perform on Turntables in, a three piece band called Belleruche. We are just about to press our first seven inch (On a very low budget in the UK), and as a result of our singers Austrialian contacts we've had the first side mastered in Australia. She was the only one of us present at the mastering session (because it was in Sydney and we are in London) and the end result sounds poor and very different to our final mix when we listen to the mastered cd (on a variety of systems). The strings seem really lost and the whole thing seems to have got far to loud and bass heavy. My question is, are the problems we percieve in the mastered cd a result of required adjustements being made to get the the thing to work well on vinyl? Or poor work by the engineer? Will a cdr master copy for vinyl sound loads different to the end record, I guess is my query? Because we really don't want the vinyl end product to sound like the master we're listening to. Sorry for my ignorance, but although I've been djing for five years this is the first time I've had anything to do with producing a record.
