So you’re a musician that just recorded your first album. You probably went into a recording studio and played all of your parts a couple of times, with the audio engineer managing all of the technical stuff. As far as you understand, they ought to be able to take all the parts they recorded, burn it to a disc, and then it needs to be all set to press. While this isn’t totally wrong, most expert artists take their mixed down the recording and pass it off to another person for mastering.
What is mastering?
Mastering is the last step in the production of an album where they add the last “polish” to the recording. This is done by technically enhancing the clearness of the mixes. This makes the compilation of songs sound more meaningful, more “together”. This also ensures that the mixes sound well on all listening gadgets.
Well, that’s all great and dandy, but does an expert mastering technician do when mastering a recording?
1. Volume Level Maximization
This is to make sure that all audio is at maximum volume so that all songs are at the very same volume level. Ever watch late-night TV, where the volume of the commercials are a couple of notches higher than the show you were seeing? If an expert mastering engineer was involved, they would raise the volume of a TELEVISION show to match the volume of the commercials.
2. Ensuring a Constant Balance of Frequencies
This ensures that all frequencies are accounted for in the recording; bass, mids, and treble so that there are no areas where there is no bass/mids/treble.
3. Noise Reduction
This is the process of removing noise from an audio signal. When utilizing analog technology, sound recordings show a type of noise referred to as tape hiss. This relates to the particle size and texture used in the magnetic emulsion that is sprayed on the recording media, and also to the relative tape speed across the tape heads.
A professional mastering laboratory may also take your recording and encode the UPC (Universal Product Code), ISRC (International Standard Recording Code), CD-Text (extra details about the CD, e.g. album name, tune name, and artist name) or other PQ details.
5. Mistake Monitoring.
This ensures the integrity of the data stream throughout CD duplication/replication at any CD factory.
Still puzzled about what an expert mastering engineer does to your CD audio recording when you hand it off to them? Do not stress, audio learning is a really complicated process. We hope that you better understand why expert learning is an integral part of the entire audio production process. It can make a world of difference!
