What good is the best song, the supposedly next big hit, or the most expensive production, if the title or the master does not sound good or is not loud enough and therefore not competitive?
If you want to compete in the music market, professional mastering is a must.
In addition to the creative aspect, the sound of a song is also decisive for success or non-success. In the end, it is also about presenting yourself on all relevant music platforms (such as Spotify, iTunes, Soundcloud) and listening situation (such as a club/disco, living room, kitchen radio, or smartphone) in the best possible way.
The so-called mastering is always the last and at the same time decisive instance of music production.
A very complex field in which only the highest quality tools and processors are used, and which requires a lot of experience and empathy.
Since the mastering process of an electronic dance track is very different from conventional mastering, even professional and non-specialized mastering studios regularly work up a sweat when it comes to club and dance music.
Focusing on a warm and powerful sound with a slight analog touch, besides of all relevant Plugins, Dance Mastering uses a high end analog chain: Apogee, Bettermaker, Dangerous Music, Handcrafted Labs, Heritage Audio, Neve, RME, Solid State Logic (SSL), SPL, Tegeler, Thermionic Culture, Universal Audio & WES Audio,
Since each title or mastering has different requirements, the arsenal of DanceMastering includes many different brickwall limiters, countless compressors, EQs, saturaters and analog tape simulations.
Each master is created individually and is NOT just processed through a preset template
Whether it is House, Deep House, Tech House, Bass & Future House, Tropical, Electro, Techno, EDM, Trance, Goa, Trap Hip Hop or RnB, Matthias Menck knows exactly what it has to sound like and what it needs to do to achieve it.
The special mastering for electronic club & dance music is the supreme discipline of mastering, which is something not all mastering
studios can do.
