Mixing a song is the first of 2 extremely critical steps taken before a song ever hits radio or is combined on an album. Many audio engineers when mixing a song use different methods and approach but great engineer should all share the same goal.
Mastering is the last/final and one of the most critical steps involved in the world of audio. Before your product makes its way to the masses, TV or shop shelves it needs to go through ‘quality control’. Generally speaking that is what mastering is. It is the final polish to make your music sound professional

In-house Mixing
BonaFideStudio is run by a powerful Macintosh computer with a multitude of plug-ins, but also has a superb Allen & Heath GSR24 desk, true modern classic and a variety of analogue outboard including valve and solid state compressors. We are able to mix either ‘in the box’ or ‘old school’ depending on your preference. As the focus of the studio is based around our Macintosh you are able to bring in projects that were recorded elsewhere if you have the audio files. That means the recording you loved whilst you were playing in the studio but sounded terrible when you got home can be brought in at BonaFideStudio and saved! Our Producers and Engineers are also trained as Mastering engineers so even if you decide not to get the track mastered at BonaFideStudio you can be confident that your mix will not change radically once it leaves our premises. Rates from £20 per hour.

Online Mastering
Mastering is responsible for making your music sound as glossy as the rest of your CDs and we use the finest UAD precision digital mastering tools available to achieve that. It is the final polish to make your music sound professional. It is also the source from which all copies will be produced via methods such as pressing, duplication or replication. Today, the format of choice are digital masters. Analogue masters such as audio tapes are still in use, although, it looks like the industry is slowly phasing this medium out.
The source material is fine tuned through equalization and audio level compression, and rendered (In a tonal context) as a cohesive audio program. The new (“Mastered”) source material is also put in the proper order at this stage. This is commonly called “the assembly or track sequencing”. More tasks such as editing, pre-gapping, levelling, fading in and out, noise reduction and other signal restoration and enhancement processes can be applied as part of the mastering stage.
