BackBeat Sound Design's Mastering Suite offers the sound quality and professional audio finishing that you've been searching for.

Quality mastering is what sets apart amateur and hobby recordings from professional releases. A highly trained and experienced set of ears takes your final mix and adjusts the sonic balance to match industry standards for EQ and loudness. The final product is superior quality and is ready for radio, CD, and digital release.

Not sure if you need mastering?

Check out these samples and experience the difference between an unmastered mix and a fully mastered song from BackBeat's Mastering Suite.

At BackBeat, we don't want you to have to choose between quality and cost, that's why we keep our rates for mastering low.

 

​Didn't record and mix with BackBeat?

No problem! We still want to work on your track.

We handle mastering for artists all around the world!

Each project is custom mastered to fit your song. That means our team actually listens to the track and understands what the song needs before starting the mastering process. The result is a sound that is fine tuned to your specific song, not just a template that turns up the volume and boosts the bass. This also means that if you're having multiple songs mastered, each one maintains its individuality, so you end up with a cohesive album full of unique songs all maintaining professional quality.
