Stem mastering introduces another step in the process, which is actually more a part of mixing than mastering. Mixing up to 8 "level-correct" stereo groups such as lead vocals, background vocals, drums, bass, and other instruments, called stems. The individual groups should be exported or rendered with the levels they have within the mix so that the mastering engineer only needs to put all levels at 0dB to have "exactly" the same mix that the mix engineer has. The point of departure for the group tracks should therefore be 100% identical. In order to avoid errors, a stereo mixdown can be delivered for reasons of comparison. For this task we use the API THE BOX summing mixer.
We specialize in the restoration, preservation and updating of your archival material. We can work from most older materials and, using Renovator, Sonic NoNoise, Izotope RX3 Advanced. We can usually improve intelligibility and reveal details in even the most challenging archival recordings. We can re-issue old songs from Vinyls and clean up program stored on 33, 45 and 78 RPM discs.

With Apple's Mastered for iTunes initiative, a new generation of AAC encoding that accept hi-resolution master files has been released.
This means we can audition exactly what will happen when the file is converted to the iTunes Plus AAC format, and adjust accordingly. The main reasons for audible distortion in a codec are inter-sample and sample peaks. These will occur at lower peak levels than they do with the high-res input files. This is part of the reason why encodes, when ripped off a CD may not sound as good. MFIT provides a set of recommendations for mastering engineers to follow when preparing master files for submission to the iTunes Store. The recommended file delivery resolution to Apple for encoding is at production sample rate (do not up-sample) and production bit-depth of at least 24-bit. Apple will accept only files from certified sources for encoding. iTunes+ files are no longer copy-restricted using DRM.
our studio is fully equipped to deliver for HIGHRES AUDIO format. More infos soon...
