World-class Audio Mastering

Starting at just $45

Get started

Audio mastering (aka post production) is the last creative step for your album – the last chance to modify your recorded performance and take your music to another level. Every major label release is mastered to prepare it for radio play and retail sale. The reason? In the studio you record one song at a time, resulting in songs that all peak at different levels and have different EQs. A mastering engineer can unify your album with skillful use of EQ, gain, and compression to give it a consistent sound from track to track. This process also allows the engineer to pump up the volume of your overall album so it's as hot as can be and sounds unbelievable.

With audio mastering from the SoundLAB you can get the professional sound you want at a fraction of the cost. You'll get the same exact treatment that perfectionists such as Eminem, The Roots, and Jason Newsted of Metallica fame have chosen. All for as low as $99 for one song.

To improve your recording the mastering engineer can:

  • Raise the overall level.
  • Even out song levels and EQ individual tracks for cohesion.
  • Correct minor mix deficiencies with equalization.
  • Enhance flow by changing the space between tracks.
  • Eliminate noises between tracks.
  • Make your music sound great on any sound system.
  • Add IRSC codes (required for digital distribution)
  • Add CD-Text information (Artist, Title, Track Names, that can be displayed by some CD players)

Single song mastering just $45

Mastering isn’t just for albums. If you’re getting ready to release a single, make sure you get the song mastered. Mastering a song will make your single pop on the radio or in the club. It will give it presence. And when your song needs to compete head-to-head against major label releases, song mastering can make the difference in giving you the edge over your competition.
