Mastering

Analogue & Digital

At Strangeworld Studios we master your music to the highest standard in the analogue domain using high end converters to convert your music from digital to analogue without any loss of detail or clarity. This signal is then fed into selected items from our extensive collection of analogue and valve mastering processors which includes compressors, equalizers and various other analogue outboard gear. The signal is then converted back into the digital domain to be optimized for any medium required by our clients.

Digital mastering is also available for those on a tighter budget, using a superb range of industry standard plugins as a cost effective way to achieve similar results.
