The secret of successful mastering is a combination of a skilful engineer, traditional and state-of-the-art equipment and well-balanced acoustics. At Riverside we can master to enhance both old and new recordings from any format. The combination of our award-winning engineers, Riverside's acoustics and our unrivalled range of equipment (both old and new) ensure that we are UK leaders in the fields of audio mastering.
The mastering process is the final stage in the recording chain where a finished master is created and the CD, DVD, vinyl or audio file master parts are produced for manufacture.
This process involves editing and compiling the required mixes and tracks in production order, cleaning the audio to remove any unwanted blemishes or corruptions and polishing the mixed sound with equalisation, compression and other outboard processing. This is the last opportunity before manufacture or release to ensure that the music fits together seamlessly and that it is presented in the best possible sound.
We welcome clients to attend the mastering session and work on a one-to-one basis with our specialist mastering engineers, please contact Duncan Cameron for further information.
