What Is Mastering?

Output Level MeterDuring mastering, a professional engineer optimizes your CD by using EQ, compression, and other dynamics processing, so your album can compete with any major label release.

Every major label release is mastered to prepare it for radio play and retail sale. The reason? In the studio you record one song at a time, resulting in songs that all peak at different levels and have different EQs. A mastering engineer can unify your album with skillful use of EQ, gain, and compression to give it a consistent sound from track to track. This process also allows the engineer to enhance the volume of your overall album so it’s as hot as can be and sounds incredible.

How to Get Started


To submit your project to CinCoYo Studio for mastering you must upload a mixed down 16-Bit/44.1kHz stereo master. We will provide your mastered audio in one of the following formats:

  • Audio CD (With CD Duplication Order) *7-10 business days
  • Data Files (wav, aiff, mp3, etc.) via download *3-5 business days


For mastering the maximum audio length is 78 minutes and the maximum upload size is 700MB

*Compressed file formats such as MP3, AAC, or WMA files are not acceptable as a source for mastering

*It is recommended that processes such as compression, limiting, maximizing, etc. not be applied on the stereo buss during mixdown. A master that arrives already compressed and or limited greatly reduces the ability of the engineer to deliver the best sounding master possible.

Masters with excessive level, clipping or audible distortion may also prevent us from mastering your project to its fullest potential. Leaving 3-4 dbs of headroom during mixdown is a good rule to follow to avoid clipping and distortion on your master.

If any of the above issues are found on your submitted master we may request that you correct the issue and submit a new master before we proceed.

It is very important that you fill out the CinCoYo
Mastering Questionnaire and Track Listing Form to help our engineers get the most out of your master. Required information on the form includes a complete and accurate running time log listing all events (tones, silences, songs, outtakes, noises, etc.) as they occur. The Artist, Title, and track names entered on this form will be used to add CD-text to your CinCoYo Duplication order. Please ensure all information is accurate.
