CD Mastering is it necessary?
In the recording and mixing phases of an album project, the artist, the producer and the engineers record one song at a time, and all the focus is to record and mix each song as best as possible. The result, however, is generally a collection of songs that all peak at different levels and may have different EQs.
In the mastering phase, a professional mastering engineer unifies the album CD by using EQ phasers, Limiters and other dynamics processing to give it a consistent sound from track to track.
In addition, mastering can raise your album’s overall level through the careful use of tools like Compressors, Maximizers and Limiters with higher sampling rate not necessarily in that order.
The mastering engineer also ensures that your music will sound great – whether it’s being played through a car stereo, a portable CD player, MP3 or a top-of-the-line stereo system.
A fresh pair of ears can be the difference between a good-sounding album CD and a great one.

Audio Mastering is the final critical creative step in the process of making a master audio recording ready for Radio, TV, Movie and Multimedia. At this point all the final sound adjustments, stereo imaging improvements and sonic enhancements are applied to shape the final sound in to a coherent and sophisticated work of art.
One of the important advantages of Mastering is that an unbiased professional mastering engineer has the opportunity to evaluate a bounce mix and determine how to get the most out of the project.

Commercials are mastered to increase legibility of speech and narration with extended frequency response, maximized loudness and balanced dynamics. Clients that master their commercials are experiencing increasing effectiveness of their efforts. Properly mastered radio and TV commercials stand out from the rest of the program and immediately grab and hold the customer’s attentions by facilitating legibility, loudness and powerful emotional impact even if the customer have turned his/her attention away from the radio or TV during the commercial break, while those who don’t are continuously losing their impact on the market place and releasing the market share to their competitors.
“My American debut album FULL MOONS OVER PANDEMONIA is a double CD. I came to ABET disc looking for replication (and, hoping for, mastering assistance). I had already checked just about everybody else out. No one could accommodate my idea of a short-run double album. Mastering fees ran from the outrageous to the ridiculous. I was delighted to find that ABET was the affordable One-Stop-Shop I didn’t believe existed! Brilliantly assisted by ABET’s Tony, I ended up with a miraculously mastered, stunningly packaged album at an absolute bargain price. Tony – big, phat THNX!! YOU DE MAN!!!” – Lars Frykholm
The work flow of making a CD
Making a CD generally involves four steps:
Recording. This is the process of capturing your performance onto a physical medium like multi-track analog real tape or a Digital computer’s hard disk.
Mixing. This is the process of blending together multiple recorded tracks using a hardware mixing console or a recording software; the usual result is a two-channel, 44.1 kHz 24-bit stereo mix.
Mastering. In this phase, your recording is optimized, balanced, equalized, and enhanced so your finished product will more competitive in the marketplace.
Manufacturing. In this final step, your digital audio CD master is transferred to a glass master and thousands of copies are replicated. If you’re not mastering your recording, you are leaving out a crucial step in the making of your CD. Mastering your CD makes your recording the most commercially competitive it can be, and bridging the technological gap between the recording studio and the listener’s stereo system. Mastering can make a huge difference in the competitiveness and musical value of your project.
