Our studio focus

Affordable, professional-quality online mastering service.

More and more of the best music you hear is written, recorded and produced at home or in a small studio. Computers are improving exponentially, you can now buy better equipment for less and the internet has become the perfect medium to advertise and distribute your music worldwide. With a bit of time and effort you can write, record and produce your own original music for next to nothing. However, if a track you’ve made 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 so 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 online mastering service for musicians, studios and labels looking to make their 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.

Free Teufelsberg NSA listening tower impulse responses

Teufelsberg NSA listening tower impulse responses

Amidst increasing concern about data privacy and how our personal data is being handled we bring you a bit of sonic surveillance history: a set of reverb impulse responses allowing you to use the acoustics of the main listening tower at the former NSA compound, Teufelsberg, in your own productions. Prior to the fall of the Berlin wall the compound was run by the American and British military with the main objective being to intercept and process any Soviet and Eastern Bloc communications as part of the ECHELON intelligence gathering network. You can find some excellent historical information in the links below, including a micro-documentary made by Vice in 2010.

We’ve recorded the impulse responses with great care and mastered them to be useful in a wide variety of situations. There are six (quite different) variations to experiment with and apply to your source audio. Finding an opportunity to approach the towers and record the impulses was tough, not to mention having to climb and squeeze through a tiny gap to reach the uppermost tower, so we hope you enjoy incorporating a piece of Cold War history into your music and audio productions.
