In contrast to the standardmastering Stem mastering is a form of mixing – Except that here we mostly work with stereo tracks and generally not as many tracks as in normal mixing process . work

Mastering in subgroups (so-called stem mastering) is a very popular and effective method in the mastering process. In contrast to the classic "stereo mastering“ (Editing the sum of a stereo track) the song is broken down into individual components, i.e. the stems described above (so-called group lanes) to allow separate editing of the grouped audio tracks in the studio. So has he mastering engineer By dividing it into stems, you have more control over the individual instrument groups and can intervene in even more detail in the pre-made mix if this is necessary.

STEM MASTERING FAQ

The basic rule here is to merge “same” with “same” as possible in order to enable targeted processing. Ideally, the following stems are possible:

  • Drums (including overheads)
  • Drums / bass (including overheads and bass track)
  • Vocals complete (all vocals)
  • Lead vocals
  • Backing vocals
  • Harmony vocals
  • Gitarren
  • EFX
  • synths
  • Streicher
  • Atmos
  • Choir

Hier wird deutlich, dass die Zerlegung eines Mixes in seine Gruppenbestandteile immer von mehreren Faktoren abhängt. Folgende Fragen sollten bei der Bildung von Stems berücksichtigt werden

  • What style?
  • What dynamic should my song / mix have?
  • What are the main elements?
  • Which tracks can be edited together?
  • Should something be changed in the relationship between vocals and backings?

Ein weiterer Vorteil beim Stem Mastering ist, dass die einzelnen Stems unabhängig voneinander im „Mitten- und Seitensignal“ bearbeitet werden können. So kann z.B. das Schlagzeug in den oberen Frequenzen breiter gemacht werden, während z.B. der Gesang wieder mehr in die Mitte wandert. So erhält man einen schönen, ausgewogenen Soundmix. Eine weitere Möglichkeit wäre, die Rhythmusgitarre im Song (wenn gedoppelt – meist ganz links/rechts außen) separat im Seitensignal bearbeiten zu können, während das Gitarrensolo als Stem (das z.B. in der Mitte liegt) davon unberührt bleibt.

5/5
I've been working with Chris for years. In contrast to other mastering studios, his mastering is characterized by the fact that he feels the mood and the musical style of the tracks and does not focus on extreme drones in the loudness war. His sensitive mixing and mastering is rarely found on this planet!
