Mastering

We master audio to any standard including "Mastered for iTunes" or what's requested. Note, that our audio engineer is officially "MFiT certified" by Apple and thus, we are an official mastered for iTunes provider. Here is our general mastering manifest next to the fact, that every track must be mastered individually depending on its genre, creation process (acoustically or electronically) and target medium (Digital Audio Format, CD, Vinyl, etc.):
