Trance Music Mastering

We are the masters of trance music mastering

I love trance music, and I love mastering trance music to make it sound it’s best!

Mastering trance music is as delicate as classical music in a lot of cases! This is what we believe and your music deserves the best. We understand trance music as we have mastered, mixed and produced it for 20 years, week in week out!

We have found some other online mastering houses just throw a limiter on to make it louder, yet destroy all dynamics and width within a track! This is wrong! Mastering trance music properly takes years of learning and  experience mastering many trance tracks.

Mastering trance music is an art as well as technical. We use a mix of digital plugins and analog tools to get the cleanest, punchiest and most beautiful sound.

Trance music has a history of over 25 years, with beautiful synths and flowing pads.

To get the best, you need a skilled mastering engineer who knows the music as well as a highly accurate room and speakers.

This is so you can judge the low end perfectly as well as getting your mids and highs just right and spaced perfectly.

We have mastered, mixed and engineered many different forms of trance from uplifting trance , psy trance, hard trance, progressive trance, uplifting trance and euphoric trance, commercial trance.

It’s so important when mastering trance music that the frequency spectrum is kept clean, punchy and consistent.

This means it will sounds amazing on a large format club & festival sound system as well as radio, iPods and TV.

A trance mastering engineer who knows what they are doing can bring a good trance mix to something very special.

A true mastering engineer who is great at mastering trance will be able to give you the perfect balance of everything you need.

As we said before mastering trance is an art!
