How Do I Prepare A Track For Stem Mastering?

The best way is to bounce / export your track into 4 – 12 stems from start to finish bypassing any compressors and limiters that you may have on the master bus. Please make sure the tracks that you send are not peaking above 0db ( preferably -3db ). The best way to arrange stems depending on your track is as follows.

What is Stem Mastering?

Stem mastering is like our mastering service, however, you will send us multiple stems, normally your main mix buses, for instance, drums, vocal, instruments, bass and FX, which allows the mastering engineer much more control over the general mix. When you choose to have your track mastered using stems, every channel is summed to our 32 channel summing mixer. Analogue summing is known for it’s amazing headroom and rich sound. The added benefit to stem mastering is we will eq and compress each stem precisely if needed using high end analogue SSL eqs, compressors. The difference a stem master makes is mind blowing.

Why Order Stem Mastering Instead Of Standard Mastering?

If you are generally unsure about the overall balance of the mix you have created, a stem master will allow the mastering engineer to take greater control of it than with your standard master. For instance if your kick is too loud and is causing the mix to be unbalanced in stem mastering we are able to correct this, as well as correcting any other stems that may not be correct in the mix. We keep all stem masters true to the original mix as to not effect the way you want your mix to sound.
