- RECORDING STUDIO, MIXING & MASTERING -
Welcome to Washburn Mastering! Awarded "Best" recording studio 2016 (city of Norfolk). Honored with multiple Top-40, Top-20 and Top-10 hits on mainstream national radio charts (New Music Weekly - LA / Nashville)
When you are mixing an album project, you serve your best interest by tending to the special needs of each individual track, which sometimes dictates it's own production style. The end result can be a collection of mixes which are not only slightly mismatched sonically, but also fall short of being up to par with other major-label releases.
Mastering gives your project premium impact by balancing EQs, matching and optimizing levels, fine tuning the overall flow and applying audio sweetening techiques for a "polished" duplication-ready master. Every major label uses mastering before going to press. It's the stage that brings the record up to professional standards.
"I've always preferred to keep the studio's end focus on mixing and mastering, especially with today's expectations of speed, quality and digital delivery. I like my clients to know that they can not only get a great recording, but they can also walk out with a finished master."
-Todd Washburn, owner / engineer
