is the process by which Mastering engineers apply equalization and dynamic range compression in order to optimize sound translation on all playback systems.

So, is your mix ready?

Well, it’s time to bounce your stems and make it ready for mastering!

How to do that?

Group the STEMS properly, keeping KICK and BASS separated (e.g. Kick, Bass, Groove, Synths, Lead, etc…).

Bounce WAV/AIFF file (24bits/44.1kHz). 

Keep every process you have applied to your separated tracks ON but the master bus clean of any process.

Make sure the max peak of the summing is between -6/-3 dB with NO limiter on the master bus and there is no clipping.  
 

Once the bounce is done, drop all your files in a new project to listen to them and be sure that everything is correct. If everything is ok, name the files properly, compress them in a ZIP or RAR file and send it to mastering@meliodikarecords.com using WeTransfer or a similar service you prefer. When sending files, contact us using the email above or the contact form below, introducing yourself and typing the service you want to hire in the subject.

OPTIONALLY: You can also add a
REFERENCE track to let us better understand your tastes and what you’re looking for...
