AUSTRALIA'S LEADING ROSTER
OF MASTERING ENGINEERS
The best of Australian Music
Studios 301 is Australia’s largest mastering facility, specialising in mastering music for Apple Music, Spotify, CD, Vinyl and all other streaming services and digital releases in a variety of genres. Our Engineers are mastering the best of Australian music every day, and so far we have mastered albums selling in excess of 100,000,000 copies!
The Mastering Process
Our engineers work on diverse material, from stadium rock, pop, classical, acoustic, indie, hip hop, to electronic music. More importantly, this work is produced in an increasingly wide variety of studios, from large scale recording complexes (not unlike Studios 301), to bedroom studios, and the occasional laptop sitting on a beach.
As you can imagine, the end results also sound quite diverse in their ‘fidelity’. The mastering process aims to provide the finished recordings with a ‘polish’ so that they sound as balanced and consistent as possible when played back on any sound system. It is the last step that’s done before playback, broadcast, replication and distribution.
Having an impartial set of ears on a recording also never hurts.
Our Mastering Service
Our premium mastering services are tailored to meet your deadlines and creative specifications and bookings can be made quickly online here on our website, over the phone, or via email. You can send your mixes to us for unattended mastering, or come in and attend the session.
Our award-winning engineers give your music the time and attention it deserves, ensuring every master is at it’s highest quality sonically, while always maintaining the mix’s original integrity.
