Mastering

Mastering your recording is it's own art form.

- Goals of album mastering -

  • Emphasizing common threads between pieces to help them feel like they belong together sonically.

  • Finding and mitigating bothersome resonances.

  • Establishing a good translation which simply means helping your music sound similar across many different listening environments. 

  • Sequencing the pieces of a collection or album helps to build the dynamic arc of the entire album. The rhythm of an album is also established by the spacing between pieces. It's an organic process that contributes to the personality of the record.

“It is sometimes truly astonishing how drastically a stereo sound file can change through the process of mastering. As for workflow, it is best to create breaks between sessions.

Coming back fresh enhances perspective and allows for quicker and clearer changes of the piece."

Sometimes it is best to go back to the original mix to fix a problem.  Correcting a single element instead of punishing the entire mix. But if you can’t go back to your original session, you can still bring about great change in a stereo sound file through mastering.

"I am extremely grateful for all the hard work and dedication Andy Mitran put in to master my most recent CD,  'The Wisdom of My Shadow' and to co-orchestrate my composition, 'The Dragon Within'.

Andy Mitran’s skills as a sound engineer are simply outstanding and he has truly mastered the art of elevating music to heights I never imagined. Andy is not only an incredible musician, recording artist and sound engineer, but an all-around nice guy as well. I could not have asked for a better collaborator on these projects — his expertise really brought my projects to life!"
