-regular master with tonal and spectral (mid/side) balance + dynamics reshaping processing + getting it to the appropriate level with no or minimal artefacts.
-Basic + editing for more pure and clean sound (more "Pro" and louder sounding without unwanted artefacts)
Advanced mastering but with stems. Usually up to 6 stems is enough but we accept even more (up to 10 stems). Stem mastering allows us more control over the individual parts and overall master, therefore it provides the best results. We highly recommend Stem Mastering for labels or tracks that are going to be released.

Interview with CassiBeatz Productions
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: I always give 100%. There is no cutting corners on any project.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: We admire the approach of Studio DMI, Luca Pretolesi. Production wise we admire Timbaland, Swedish House Mafia, Axwell, Deadmau5, also Headhunterz. Also one of our all time favourite top producers would be Rick J. Jordan from Scooter.
Q: What are you working on at the moment?
A: A few techno/house tracks for a client.
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: Both. Because there is no digital without analog. There are D/A converters therefore there is no sound without analog. Sound comes from analog signal.
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: Opportunity for innovation. Getting the industry standard on the next level.
Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?
A: What kind of sound do they want to achieve? Is the track going for a release?
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: Not every engineer is passionate for every type of music. Me personally would not easily accept mastering jazz, classical, or something which I am not confident with. Therefore maybe it will be a few misses until you find what you really need. Go with your instincts, and less with testimonials.
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: I am in the music business 15+ years, being a DJ and producer after what I had a break for a few years. For now I'm doing mixing and mastering, and am preparing to start producing again.
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: Luca Pretolesi obviously, because I think we have the same approach to sound and similar mindset which is not limited by typical mastering definitions.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: Don't highpass everything. :)
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: We work with electronic music mostly which is al genres of house, techno, trance, EDM.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: Technical approach and sensing the need for which specific techniques the track needs.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: Life, dimension, sense, validity.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: Trying to understand the track I am working on, then applying necessary effects and techniques on it. The procedure is not as simple as it would be expected. We work with a set of techniques which is applied to the track. After that the track gets that "Pro" sound, and then we build it even more, we go more into detail and polish.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: We are currently basically in the box, using many great plugins which give us many possibilities that were not possible before, but soon we are extending our approach also on external gear. There is a need for external gear because we are setting up our signal chain out from the digital thru the analog chain due to the need of setting up very well known technique which is summing. After that we will add a few eqs and compressors just for the final touch before the export.
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: Mixing and mastering is what we do for our clients the most. Our approach is in many cases different from traditional mixing and mastering available at the market. Therefore we provide a not so common ways and techniques to achieve the sound we want to pursue.
