Mastering is the dark art of perfecting the final mixes of a song to give them the final polish they need to get them to the next level. Sometimes only the subtlest of changes can bring the track to a whole new level.
To hear the subtlest of those changes, you need a professional studio. That's where we come in.
The second, and arguably most important, factor of a mastering studio, after the engineer, is the monitoring. At Cosmic Audio, our chief mastering engineer, Mark Ashfield commissioned a one-off monitoring system from Quested and ATC to rival the very best anywhere in the world. This ensures that what he hears coming from the speakers is super-accurate and translates phenomenally well to consumer playback systems. Mark uses a combination of software and hardware to achieve world-class results and his CV speaks for itself, having worked for nearly all of the major labels, many independent labels, broadcasting houses such as the BBC and Channel 4, as well as thousands of independent artists.
