What is mastering?
Mastering is the last step to get the maximum potential out of the audio material.
Our studio was professionally planned and offers a perfect listening environment with the KS Digital Linemaster.
Depending on the project, the audio material is processed with the best analog and digital technology.
Soundation Studio offers many years of experience in the field of mastering and is therefore the ideal Partner for your projects.
You can easily use our online mastering service. This saves time and money. The exact data delivery and further information can be found in the following points.
