COS Mastering utilizes the SADiE 6 digital audio editing system. We strive to produce the finest musical results enhancing your product to be the best possible. With full optimization and focused imaging, your mastered playback performance will be consistent and 2nd to none when broadcast on FM radio, converted to MP3 for internet downloads, played in your car, at the club, in your home system or in any type of music player. We customize our process based on each individual music album with respect to each song in your project so it is correct for your genre and market.
We use both analog and digital processing equipment that yields you the benefit of having the best of both worlds, the musical warmth and richness of analog and the accurateness of the hi-res digital domain. Each project receives extreme personal attention to ensure that we enhance or bring to life the musical detail and achieve the highest reality possible.
The short list of outboard gear would be pieces like the Millennia NSEQ2 & Crane Song IBIS EQ Stabilizer along with the Crane Song STC-8 & Fred Forssell MADA-2a. Monitor control is achieved through the Crane Song Avocet. Other outboard units we employ as need for each project.
When the mastering is complete we provide you with reference copies of your project to review and make sure you are satisfied with our work.
When you’re satisfied we then create your Pre-Master DDPi along with any test/check sum files or reports and PQ information your and/or your replication plant may need for your final media.
