Stereo Mastering

Stereo mastering is achieved with just one audio file. I will enhance your song to give you the optimum balance and loudness.

Mastering for iTunes, Spotify, Tidal, Youtube and Soundcloud

Before you submit your iTunes music for sale, Apple recommends that you adapt the sound of your tracks according to their requirements for subsequent high-quality encoding to the AAC format. Although the mastered wav file you receive from stereo mastering is perfect for uploading to streaming services. 

Stem Mastering

Master from 8 or less stems of the final mix. I can fine tune the main elements of your mix to perfection in my neutral listening environment.
