We have a selection of tools that enable us to process your mixes with the greatest integrity.
Our All Digital process allows us to deal with all aspects including EQ, Compression, Expansion, Limiting, etc., in the Digital Domain.
If the program requires, we do have several analogue devices, including BroadHurst Gardens EQ, Amek 9098 Compressors and Neve Tape Simulators, Studer Valve Line Drivers and Emmlabs, Apogee, TC and Studer A/D Converters to get us back to the Digital Domain.
We assemble your finished program onto our Pyramix Mastering system, to do the track reordering and spacing, with fade ins and outs.
At the end of the mastering session you will receive a 'reference disc' with the mastered audio. This provides you with the opportunity to listen to the mastered tracks on your own equipment and environment. The final production master will be made after we receive your approval.
The CD Master will be ready for manufacture and will contain CD Text and ISRC codes (if supplied).
Visit the Aria Website for more information about ISRC Codes.
