Why Do I Need A Mastering Engineer?

Essentially, mastering is the link between the pro audio industry and the hi-fi industry. The idea behind this is to take something that sounds good on professional grade studio monitors, and make it sound equally as good on a home system. To sound equally as good on Sennheiser HD650’s and Apple Earbuds.

With the changing trends in the music industry it is worth having your songs and album mastered. It can be the difference in getting noticed instead of getting brushed under the rug with amateurs.

"Andy did a great job on the Mastering of my instrumental track ,which was used on a short film documentary Soundtrack for BRUISEFILM London."

"I had 5 tracks mastered by the Studio. And now they definitely sound much more detailed and comfortable for perception from different sound sources and in various environments. Good mastering service also makes me confident that I did a good job too while recording, processing and mixing because I feel when listening to the final product that my vision, balance of my textures are understood by mastering engineer and are ready to be conveyed to audience in a better way as complete and solid idea. And this is exactly what I got from Andy."

"Dearest Andy is a wonderful multi-faceted musician/artist who's talents not only lie in the crafts associated with his fine ears and eyes, but also his patient and persistent pursuit of tweaking the mastering demands of his colleagues to achieve beautiful art. Adam and I - as BirdWorld - as well as all the artists associated with the rework record we are about to release on Focused Silence (also run by Andy), are delighted with how the master of this record has turned out and proud to say it was done by Sigil of Brass. We strongly recommend this service to anyone seeking to master their record to a high level of professional quality."

"Andy has been Mastering my radio shows (over 200 shows over one format or another) and he was quick to pick up on how I wanted my sound. He was very good at mastering my eclectic sounds to get what I wanted."
