CD mastering adds a superior touch to your record

CD mastering is the last step and is carried out during post-production. The process involves plenty of preparation and the recording is transferred from the main source to the master source, which is a device used for data storage. Various methods like duplication, pressing or replication are used to transfer the record. The entire process is digitised.

The entire process is carried out by a professional and skilled mixing engineer within a studio which is unlike the normal recording studio. This is because large recording equipment like the console or the monitoring devices can interfere with the recording process.

The arrangement of the recording equipment is also vital as the mixing engineer requires easy access to equipment that is essential for every track. The recording artist also gets plenty of creative options while working with a mastering engineer. Methods like equalisation, compression, restricting, eliminating noise and others are used for processing the source material.

Once the source material is mastered, it can be put in proper sequence, which is also known as the track sequencing or assembling tracks. Editing, levelling, pre-gapping, fading the track in and out, removing unwanted noise, restoring signals and many more enhancements can be done during the CD mastering phase.

With CD mastering, the overall recording and every track is more presentable and ready for hitting the music stands. For effective albums and recordings, a CD mastering studio can also be set up at home however the results are best at a professional studio.
