Interview with Release Mastering
Q: What are you working on at the moment?
A: Currently working on some mastering for upcoming 2021 film release of Crow Valley.
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: Hybrid. There are pros and cons to both so why choose one or the other? Digital provides wide access to millions of tools at a fraction of hardware costs. That being said, analogue provides an authentic richness to sound that can sometimes only be achieved from analogue.
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: High quality handcrafted mastering which considers the stereo image, referenced work, tonal balancing and distribution needs.
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: Mix with mastering in mind. Ensure you're leaving headroom and come with some reference tracks/artists!
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: Clean, purposeful & rich.
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: Billie Eilish & Finneas are bringing a great dynamic to the industry currently, their creativity and well thought out arrangements continue to keep our interest.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: Levelling your mix correctly will solve 80% of all of your issues. Spend time getting the right balance before throwing effects at your mix.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: Our strongest skill is critical listening. We look to pick up on anything that takes away from the full potential of the track.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: We add subtle, purposeful changes that help your track not only sit with the industry leads but stand out amongst them!
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: The first step to great mastering is full in-depth analysis of a track. We're looking at the waveform as it arrives in the DAW, we're listening to the stereo image, we're analysing the tonal balance across the track, we're listening for any distractions or unique qualities that should be discussed further, and we're taking an active listen to suggested reference tracks or artists. Once analysis has been complete and we have sent back any mix suggestions we get started with the modules and plugins. We look to make a series of small changes that when put together provide that final 10% push it takes to have your track industry ready. Once we're happy with the processing we re-analyse the track with the original mix in mind and sign off on the final track.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: Quincy Jones Andrew Scheps Jon Bellion Michael Jackson Finneas
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: We always promise an authentic experience. From the communication we offer to the project we deliver, we will remain honest and true throughout.
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: It has to be the A/B comparison between the mixdown and final master. Getting to hear where the track started vs where it has been elevated too never gets old.
Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
A: The biggest misconception about mastering is that it's all about loudness. True mastering is about tailoring a sound which is true to the musician and well received by the listener.
Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?
A: What are you looking to achieve through the mastering process? What is the intended distribution? What artists inspire your style?
