  • Last, when done well, mastering audio boosts the volume and adds a certain brightness and life to the sound.xx

Successful Audio Mastering

  • Ideally, save your final mixes as data files (not audio files) onto a CD. These files should be either wav. or aiff. files in 24bit 48,000 Hz format. (Alternatively, you can supply us with your final mixes and we’ll convert them into the proper format for you.)

  • Don’t have your mix pegged to 0db, but instead keep the level between -3 and -10 db so that you don’t run the risk of audio distortion.
