stem mastering vs stereo mastering


The less compromise you can make in the mastering process, the better the result. Let's say you have a great mix, but which has too little bass instrument, too much kick, and the lower midrange is a little bit muddy. This is a potentially bad combination for mastering.

 

However, in situations like the aforementioned, when time is tight, I would ask the client for a stem mastering, and the results have always been better than if I had mastered from a stereo file.  With 3 to 6 stereo stems(Instrument Tracks), I can get great results mixing and mastering at the same time. The result produces results with the least compromise. For example, the mastering processing is going to affect the clarity of the midrange and through "slop" will probably leak down into the bass region, hopefully for the better. But in the case the mastering processing could easily make one range better while making the other worse.

 

If mixing with the mastering processing in place, I have it all in context at one time in the ideal acoustic of the mastering room.  I think mixing from stems while mastering can produce the very best product

Split and bounce your Song in 4 musical elements such as Drums, Bass, Vocals, Synth or organic Instruments. You can do that by deactivating some mixer tracks and bounce and render just a part of your song.
