CD mastering will help your music sound better

CD mastering is the final chance to include creative input when creating a music CD. After mastering the CD, it can be printed, reproduced and sold to the public.

The process of CD mastering

CD mastering includes several steps: Firstly, all the songs or tracks are put onto the CD in order and then the volume of the songs is leveled. The length between each song is also adjusted. The final steps involve editing of the songs at the beginnings and at the ends by fading or cross fading. Some secret songs or un-utilised songs are usually added at this point of time.

Ways of CD mastering

There are different ways to master a CD: You can hire a professional CD mastering engineer, which is what many professional musicians do. The mastering engineers also work in their own mastering facilities.

Apart from professional engineering, CD mastering is also possible at home by using computer software. Many beginners try out this option but with this, the CD may sound muddy and unprofessional.

Online CD mastering is also an option which has become more common these days. In this process, you need to send the mix via the internet to a CD replication or duplication company. Their CD mastering engineers will transform a rough mix into a superior sounding album which is ready for public distribution.
