Production, Mixing, Mastering

analog+wax on SoundBetter

My name is Sean Andrew Martin and I am an audio professional who specilizes in mixing, mastering, recording, & sound design and a myriad of other audio services.

Mixing is the stage after recording where you blend individual tracks together, while mastering is the the final stage of audio production where you polish the entire mix to prepare for distribution. Mixing is when an engineer carves and balances the separate tracks in a session to sound good when played together. While mastering a song means putting the finishing touches on a track by enhancing the overall sound, creating consistency across the album, and preparing it for distribution.

A mastering engineer is your last line of defense before your song, single, EP, album, or mixtape hits the world. They are the QC—the quality control—and their job boils down to tasks best delineated in contrast to mix engineers.

A mixing engineer balances ten, twenty, or upwards of a hundred tracks into a single song, one that sounds great in their studio. Mastering engineers predominantly work with a single stereo track (before sequencing and metadata tagging), and they do everything in their power to make this track shine on every conceivable playback system.
