Mastering is the final stage of the music production process prior to manufacture.
It is a vital step in making sure your music is consistent from one track to the next and is compatible on a variety of playback systems. Whatever your intended media we can put that professional polish on your music and make sure it will compete in the market place no matter what the genre. We take a creative yet specialist approach and always aim to deliver our client’s vision. Our goal is to get your music sounding how you want it. We offer unbiased honest feedback to all our clients and love receiving it as well.
After mastering your tracks we can edit, order, and provide you with reference wavs or MP3s
for your approval and produce the appropriate master for manufacturing and digital distribution.
We can provide most formats for manufacturing and duplication including:
DDPi - The preferred manufacturing data format delivered via a download link.
Vinyl - Wide, dynamic high-resolution wavs, one wav for each vinyl side, reference
level tone and rtf document with detailed instructions.
Streaming - Standard wavs reference to the latest LUFS dynamic recommendations.
If you are the original owner of the recordings it's wise to investigate International Song Recording Codes - "ISRC".
In Australia they are available from ARIA via the ARIA WEBSITE.
Transfers and Dubbing
We also offer transfer and dubbing services from most professional formats, just ask.
Let don know if you have any queries. Don is available for a quick audition of your mix if needed.
Project archive / backup
It’s Benchmarks philosophy to archive all mastered projects permanently. However, if an archive hard drive fails no responsibility will be taken.
