Mastering the Art

Well it’s done… A bit late in blogging about it, but I was so tired yesterday.

The mastering took the grand total of 10 hours (or there abouts). Amazing when you consider that the CD we were mastering was only 45 minutes long.

We are very pleased with the result. I was very nervous before we went along, that the quality of our mix, and the general EQ was not workable, but I was pleasantly surprised and in fact I am very pleased with the result. It is far better than I could have possibly imagined. This makes it sound like we were working with rubbish, but I think that I am being hard on myself really. Listening to the CD objectively it really does sound rather good.
Loads of thanks goes to Graham Semark of Cyclone Music Productions again, for a stirling job, including carrying on till 20:00 so that we could finish off. Hat’s off to you mate. I also have to thank Sarah because without her the mix would not have been as good as it is !!
