Hi guys, I would like to ask you what do you think about proper monitoring when mastering? What kind of equipment should be used to judge your decisions? Does knowledge of equipment is more important then quality? How does it pertain to so called industry standards?
My client is looking to get 100 vinyl records produced. He has contacted a number of record pressing places and has narrowed it down to these five.
How to Make Clean Masters
When trying to make your master sound clean, it’s a good idea to find and isolate any sources of unwanted noise, such as noise generators, and mute them. Additionally, cutting the side image’s low-frequencies, as well as the mids by up to 20Hz can add some clarity to your master.
We have been working on this for the past two and a half years and it is finally finished. My tech wiz, Rhys Davies, built the whole unit himself and wired it. We had lot of changes along the way but it works GREAT and we got exactly what we wanted. S/N -95.5 dBM, Distortion .0005%, Frequency Response 20 t0 20 KHz +/- .5 dB.
Picture of our updated mastering studio. My interns and I have been working on this since the beginning of summer. New bass traps, all wiring redone, new setup of the mastering desk and all equipment checked for proper operation and phase. BIG JOB FOR MY INTERNS AND THEY DID PROFESSIONAL LEVEL WORK!!!
Please have a wonderful Holiday and a GREAT and PROSPEROUS New Year! I hope 2022 will finally see the end of the COVID-19 pandemic and we can all get back to making music. Be safe!
