THE ART OF MIXING
Getting your new record mixed and mastered is similar to furnishing your new home. The rough mix of your song serves as the blueprint of the house. The mixer and mastering enginer are the trusted interior designers with the taste and skill set to create an atmosphere that makes you feel at home and genuinely represent who you are as an artist.
As your mixing engineer, Nacor will have the opportunity to:
Take your song from being a promising rough mix to being a mixed record that truly channels your vision and captures your essence as an artist.
Make your song feels cohesive and musical, where each part of the arrangement plays its role without flaw.
Reveal the root conversation between the instruments in the arrangement and rediscover the song you envisioned.
Create an all-in-one 3-dimensional feel in your song (height, width, and depth) that can transport the listener to a true listening experience of art.

A WORD ABOUT MASTERING
The Mastering process is the final creative stage before releasing your record. We like to think of mastering as carefully placing different colorful blocks into one solid box where they all fit perfectly. Nacor will take your mixed songs and add a sheen that will bring them together into a finished record.
As your Mastering Engineer, Nacor will have the opportunity to optimize and enhance each individual mix by establishing a consistency in EQ and loudness perception throughout your entire record.
Your final master will be prepared and delivered in the format that best suits your needs; WAV, DDP, PMCD and Mastered for iTunes are some of the common options. ISRC codes, UPC code and CD Text (artist, tittle and track names) and other metadata can be embedded in your PMCD and DDP formats.
ANOTHER REASON TO GET YOUR RECORD MASTERED.
Recording and mixing from home has made it easy for bands, producers and beat makers to create music and mix tracks without leaving the comfort of their home studio. Great mastering ensures that your mix will translate well (playback with accuracy) across different listening systems. It is rare to have a mix that is perfect and needs no additional manipulation at the mastering stage
Excellent mastering requires critical listening by a skilled engineer within an acoustically designed environment and a tuned monitoring system.

MASTERING FOR ITUNES
Why do it?
Digital distribution is today's dominant medium for audio delivery. Many different companies have find their way to constantly come up with innovative and exceptional ideas to keep simplifying the way consumers get access to high quality digital content.
In early 2012 Apple released a statement regarding new developments of the AAC encoder (iTunes Plus - Variable Bit Rate) and how with the use of Apple's encoding software and the right source material, the audio industry would be able to create audio files that would sound better than CDs.
Having your record mastered for iTunes is an investment in your art and your brand. The better your final product is, the better its impact will be. Also, having a Mastered for iTunes version of your album will make your fans happy and give you a leg up come promotion time.

MASTERING FOR VINYL 'THE LOST ART'
Vinyl is being left behind by the average listener, leaving audiophiles to be the major consumer of this audio medium. To audiophiles, the vinyl version of many records tends to sound better than the CD version. This is one of the principal reasons why some passionate artists still invest in the production of this traditional way of delivering music to their audience.
SOME TECHNICAL ASPECTS TO KEEP IN MIND WHEN READYING YOUR MASTERS FOR VINYL:
Mastering for vinyl meets particular sonic standards and specifications (including low end, width of the stereo image, maximum output level, audio resolution and sample rate) that suit the delicate lacquer's surface for proper transfer of your music from the digital to analog domain.
The cutting system is just as important as the making process of the vinyl masters at the mastering house. Having a good cutting engineer, a good sounding lathe, and all the required equipment are three crucial aspects for the success of the cutting process and generating good sounding master lacquers.
