Mastering Services

“Mastering makes a good sounding mix, sound great!”

Mastering is the final preparation of your audio mix for online and physical distribution. We’ll perform post production processing to fix any mix balance problems, adjust levels, enhance sonic characteristics and add “mix sweetening” to put the final touches on your production. It’s in this phase where we take a good sounding mix to a professional sounding product.

We will master your already mixed music and audio productions to produce a finished product ready for online distribution, downloading or streaming as well as for physical media distribution such as CD’s and DVD’s.

Your project will be mastered with commercial loudness standards in mind, taking into consideration the various loudness requirements for streaming sites such as YouTube, Spotify, SoundCloud and iTunes. We do this to ensure your music and audio will translate and sound great online, on the radio, and on television.

Our mixing and mastering services can be accomplished completely online which means you do not need to be local to our facility to take advantage of our mixing services. No matter where in the world you are located, we offer a convenient client portal for secure, web based file transfer to support our remote clients. Clients can upload songs, notes and references, preview rough, 1st revision and finished mixes and also download the final lossless files and other project related documentation. If you are local to the New York and New Jersey Metro area or plan to be in the area, we offer “attended” mastering sessions as an option.

“Did some Acoustic Guitar work and vocals at Blue Thunder Studios! Originally planned to have a full acoustic production, but with Chris’s masterful production, we were able to fuse genres of acoustic rock, hip hop and electronic dance music. All in all, an eclectic masterpiece that should be gaining some attention in the near future! Thanks Blue Thunder Studios! Thank you Chris! ”
