Why Master Your Music?
West West Side Music is renowned for its audio mastering expertise. Our audio mastering process will evaluate the overall tone, level, and dynamic range of your music, and will provide a uniform balance for the final sequence. By using specialized, state-of-the-art equipment, we will help shape the sound of your record. With EQ we are able to balance the aural spectrum, giving your music a more focused and clear sound. Using compression, we help to “glue” the mix together.
Communication is key to great mastering, so be sure to let us know what you’re looking to achieve. Ultimately, the process should make your music more listenable on a wide range of playback systems, as well as add consistency to the continuous play of your sequence. The mastering process is about perspective… so your mixes stand up today, and years down the line.
We encourage you to try to attend your mastering session, if possible. If not, we will communicate with you via our private file transfer site. Your mastered product can be provided in a variety of formats, depending on your needs. There are several other processes that we are capable of utilizing to achieve the desired result for certain projects, including de-noising and adding effects.
We enjoy getting involved in your music-making process. We are passionate about bringing out the best in your recordings. In handing off your project to a fresh set of skilled ears, you are adding life to the music, allowing it to communicate more fluently with your listeners. We want you to be comfortable in working with us. Some things that are obvious to us may not be to you. Please feel free to call and speak to us regarding any questions or concerns you may have. Try to send us your mixes as soon as you are happy with them, so we can listen and make certain you get the most from us. We look forward to working with you!
