We’ve gotten the masters back from Sky Onion and they sound amazing! For those who don’t know, mastering is the process by which an engineer takes a good-sounding mix and makes it sound professional and consistent. It corrects minor issues and enhances certain sonic characteristics.
Gus at Sky Onion says:
My approach to mastering depends on the source material and the needs of the artist. Sometimes the goal is to enhance and color a mix to make an otherwise “flat” sounding recording come alive on the speakers. Other times it’s about maintaining the sonic qualities of a mix while making minor adjustments in the most transparent way possible. I try my hardest to achieve whatever sound the artist is after while subjecting every recording to the highest possible level of quality control.
