Why still have your songs mastered?
We love hits, ladies and gentleman, whether it's classical music, pop, jazz, rock, dance or folk.
We always push ourselves to our limits, but in the final mastering, we go a little bit further, looking for
the perfect colour and balance.
We don't just focus on volume: your mix shouldn't (only) sound massive, it must be appealing to your audience.
Our engineers have the creative empathy to let your mix shine on every possible medium.
In 2006, MotorMusic Mastering was born as an independent company, based on the know how of MotorMusic studios.
The company has the same philosophy as the mother ship:
they both aim for top quality, based on made to measure craftmanship and personal touch.
Whether you'd like to perform for your neighbours, or a sold out arena.
We opt for acoustically neutral sounding spaces.
That way, we (and you) are able to judge the sound
in the most honest way possible.
Projects we've worked on
High resolution & Apple Digital Masters
We continously invest in new software that enables us to author the newest formats (surround in DSD and DXD. We do this for specialised platforms, as well as SACD.
Our engineers have gained the expertise through training (and a bit of trial and error) to make your music sound great on every platform available - whether it's high resolution or MP3.
We are also a proud affiliate of the Apple Digital Masters-programme.
The last few years, there has been a strong revival of vinyl records. It's a delicate matter, that requires a specific know how, in which Thomas De Pauw, one of our senior engineer, has specialised. Contact him to discuss your vinyl project with him.
