Digital Mastering | Black Tiger Recordings

By: Black Tiger Recordings  09-12-2011

Mastering tracks for digital release may seem like a simple process, it’s not. While radically different than mastering for vinyl single or album release for example – digital mastering is no less complex.

While some may lead you to believe that when you get something “mastered” you are really after the “room” or the speakers or the set up  and while this is largely true the most important thing you can get when seeking out a mastering service is an unbiased set of ears. That’s where we come in.

As DJs and producers ourselves we know what it means to play and listen to “hot” tracks. We care very much about the end result almost to the point of fanatical levels and as a result our digital mastering services are incredible.
With fully optimized audio processing capabilities mixing on state of the art analog and digital equipment with a set of ears that know what it takes to produce a hot mix on your single or album you will say just that. Incredible!

We encourage you to refuse to participate in the “Loudness War” that has been waging since the late 1980s industry wide (but actually started in the mid-1970s with Phil Spector’s “wall of sound” concept).  Don’t be fooled by engineers who simply bump it up on your mix and call it a day. Mastering music is an art form, and while modern technology may make it easier to do than ever before, you still have to know what you are doing and “why” certain things are done a certain way. That’s where we come in.

Club Installation | Black Tiger Recordings

Rarely were we satisfied with having some “rock guy” from the local PA shop install our systems so we opted very early on to do it ourselves from full installation to designing and building our own “Zen” Brand Bass Bins which have now become legendary in Western Canada. It doesn’t matter if it’s consulting on a multi-million dollar mega-club install or putting together and tweaking a sound system for a club or lounge that holds 100 people.
