Mastering & Post Production

Middle | Mastering on SoundBetter

Middle is an analogue mastering and post-production studio based near Bristol and Bath. Founded in early 2018 by audiovisual artist and mastering engineer Benjamin Lincoln, Middle provides artistic mastering for a diverse community of commercial clients and independent creatives across the UK and beyond. | https://www.thisismiddle.com/ |

Mastering is considered to be a clinical process. Engineers will make technical decisions that do not influence the sound from an artistic perspective. My philosophy is different. As an artist myself I cannot help but approach my work through a creative lens. Not doing so would be to neglect months (if not years) of artistic creation that has led you to these final stages. Of course, it is often necessary to make subtle technical corrections; sometimes a clean and clinical method is appropriate, other times it is not. Regardless of the project’s unique sonic concept, respecting the intentions of your music and sensitively enhancing its character is at the forefront of what I do.
