What to expect from mastering
Using esoteric analogue hardware and sophisticated digital techniques, Steve can improve the clarity, definition and depth of your mixes. Steve Kitch Mastering can add proper equalisation, compression, limiting, dithering plus reduce hiss, hum, crackles and clicks.
Edits and fades can be done for smooth transitions between songs. In extreme cases, Steve can even take care of timing problems, dropouts, glitches, unwanted passages and dropped notes.
The final product can be supplied as digital files ready for digital distribution, digital DDP image ready for replication or a Red Book CD master.
When your mastering is finished you will receive digital masters as standard. Should you require it then we can provide a digital DDP image which can be sent to a replication company via the internet. The DDP file is accompanied by a PC/Mac player which enables you to play the file, extract WAV files and burn a CD reference copy. Steve Kitch Mastering can also supply a Red Book CD master if required.
