Mastering is divided in two types. On one hand, there is technical mastering (creation of the glass master for CDs or the stencil for vinyls) and on the other hand, there is musical- and premastering (editing process of the mix and the preparation for technical mastering). The goal is to enhance the audio material with dynamic processors, equalizers, filters or psychoacoustical devices, so that the quality of the sound is the same on every playback device (hi-fi system, earplugs). The audio-mastering-process mainly focuses on adjusting the frequencies, and achieving a good mono-compatibility as well as a well-balanced stereo sound. If necessary it is also possible to adjust the sound levels, remove jitter or place fades. Audio-mastering offers:
The following step is called pre-mastering. There are usually no further alterations to the sound itself, instead the track order, pause times and track indexes have to be determined. Normally, the CD-text which includes information of the album, single tracks, ISRC or EAN-codes is also compiled in this step. The mastering-files, including CD-information, are either issued as premaster-CDs (according to the Sony Red-Book Standard for audio CDs) or as a DDP-master (disc description master). Naturally, the export of the audio files is available in any desired audio-format, and of course in the best quality. If needed we also prepare special masters for iTunes, live gigs, YouTube videos and smartphones.

Also, if you appreciate good sound quality, whether on digitized vinyls or already mastered songs or if their audio-files exhibit any flaws, Peak-Studios is for you. Or even if you just want the perfect sound for your finished projects, whether you play them on stereo devices or on mono devices like smartphones or tablet-PCs, in the internet and on every platform which is able to convert audio files (YouTube, iTunes, …)
