About

Mastering

We have spent the past decade analysing and processing sound and have since developed our own unique approach on mastering which is what Vanguard Mastering is all about.

We take great care in acknowledging your mix and retaining its natural dynamics, so your recordings won’t get squashed or remixed. Instead, our aim is to make your music loud enough to be at optimum level on any speaker system, yet without creating audible compression artefacts.

We adjust the frequency balance of your mix so that your music sounds transparent, yet fat and tight as glue. We can remove the mud and add crispy treble, while smoothing out any digital grit with analogue warmth.

Our purpose-built speakers and custom-built listening room is an acoustically treated museum filled with yesterdays hardware and todays software; so you can be assured that your music will sound at its best on every speaker system regardless of speaker type, location or cost.

Vanguard Mastering will:

  • raise and match the overall level of your tracks
  • even out song levels and adjust average dynamics
  • limit peaks to maximize volume without creating digital clipping
  • equalise and match individual tracks for cohesion
  • correct minor mix deficiencies with equalisation
  • enhance flow by changing the space between tracks
  • eliminate noises between tracks and edit start and end point sample accurately
  • add accurately fine-tuned fade in and fade out
  • make your music sound warm and smooth by using vintage tape and tube processing equipment
  • add ISRC codes and EAN/UPC bar codes
  • add CD-Text information (Artist, Title and Track Names that can be displayed by CD players)
