Mastering Services

Mastering is the last creative step in the audio production process. It is the last opportunity to enhance sound or repair problems before distributing your music to achieve its maximum effect and level.

Intellectual Mastering will give your tracks that commercial edge and polish that will have them ready for release to the public.

We assess each track and use state of the art digital software and hardware to make your tracks reach their full potential. We don’t just make your tracks louder, we strive to ensure your track is also dynamically sound in all frequency ranges. We work with each client individually with a completely different perspective based on their needs.

GEAR: We use the highest quality industry standard brands for our hardware and software such as Crane Song, Solid State Logic (SSL), Universal Audio (UA), Focusrite, Manley, Ampex, Pultec, API, Waves, Lexicon, Mackie, and Steinberg among many others…all within an acoustically accurate and sound-treated studio.

WHAT OUR CLIENTS SAY
I exclusively use intellectual Mastering and no one else. Period.
Brendon “Summer” Collins, Owner, Tulipa Recordings
It was Tony’s ear for quality that led UnitOvOne Recordings to have our diverse catalog mastered by iM. From Minimal Techno to Drum & Bass to Noise to Glitch, Tony brings out the best in all of our projects.
Dan Robitaille, Owner, UnitOvOne Recordings
The mastering done on Nearly Wolves was definitely a work of art. Nice booming bass and the high end was nice and crisp. IM does top notch professional work. I highly recommend people to use their service.
Wayne aka Qarrell, Owner, One for All Recordings
Any producers, bands, and pop artist that need their tracks mastered should look no further than I.M. Tony does an amazing job at mastering. Trust me from personal experience, he made my forthcoming release sound amazing.
Will McGlone, Producer,
2 years has passed on, and I’m still using Intellectual Mastering, and loving it especially the analog option which makes the result as good as it sounds on a vinyl.
Kenny Wee, Owner, Pure Substance Recordings
As a label boss myself it’s great to have newer labels like Keinemusik, Klektik, Tulipa (client of iMastering), Pespectiv, Paso and Area Remote bringing us new and emerging talent.
John Digweed, DJ, Bedrock Records
The Mastering is a big part (of our label’s success), I get so many emails of mastering for cheaper but I don’t even bother with those because I know they are not going to do a better job. I get so many compliments on the mastering
