More and more of the best music you hear today is written, recorded and produced at home or in a small project studio. Computers are faster than ever, equipment is now cheap and the internet has become the perfect medium to advertise and distribute your music, both locally and around the world. If you’re willing to put in the work you can write, record and produce your own original music for next to nothing. However, if someone listens to a track you’ve made and it doesn't sound good compared to other artists, all that hard work will have gone to waste. If your music doesn’t sound professional, you won’t get noticed.
Mastering has never been more important. Making your song sound as professional as the artists you admire makes all the difference. If you sound as good on YouTube through a mobile phone as you do on vinyl through a club soundsystem, your fans can suspend their disbelief and focus on appreciating great new music.
In line with the changing times, Balance Mastering was formed to provide a high quality analogue mastering service for musicians looking to make their online streams and digital releases sound as professional as possible. With increasing demand we’ve now branched out to provide more traditional formats such as CD and vinyl but our focus remains the same: Giving you high quality professional sound, at a price you can afford.John Flynn – Mastering Engineer and Founder
