Stem Mastering Service specialized in Electronic Music, Techno, House.  Optimized for streaming, club sound systems, CD or Vinyl 

Pro Stem Mastering Service

If you are not completely happy with your Mix, choose Stem-Mastering. Send up to 5 Stems/Tracks for each Song, I enhance your Mix by tweaking each stem detail individually and Master your Song. So I have more control on every sound element and can fix your mixing problems even more.  You get a clear and warm result to have optimized sound on streaming services or download shops. 

 

Example for sending your Stems, export up to 5 channels/Busses:

1.Kick 2.Bass, 3.Synth, 4.Percussions 5.FX/Vocal

 

How it works:

  1. Be sure that you leave some headroom when sending your stems. Set -3 / -6 DB as the maximum loudness target when mixing your music. Creating perfect loudness levels is part of the mastering process, so definitely avoid sending audio tracks with more than 0db to avoid clipping artifacts. 
  2. Render your Instrument Tracks within your favorite music production software(Ableton, Cubase, FL Studio). When converting your song as a lossless .wav file choose 24Bit or 32Bit with 44,1khz or more
  3. During the ordering process, you get to ask to add a download link to your sound file. For that purpose, I recommend using Wetransfer or Google Drive.
  4. When I received your song, I will start the mastering process as soon as possible. First I check if everything is all right with your sound file, but then I  let the magic happen. After 1-3 days you get back your improved and mastered song. Next, we communicate and check if you are 100% pleased with the result. If we have to change something, you have unlimited revisions - till you are delighted.
  5. Get something back: If you have released your single or EP, I will support you with promotion. Here at mastrng.com I have about 10.000 monthly visitors, I will share your Song in my Spotify Playlist and can promote it on social media

What is a Stem Mastering?


Stem Mastering Service Berlin for Techno and House Music

Stem Mastering is the best option to improve your Mix, because it's an Mastering technique with more depth and fine tuning options. You send up to 4 Stems / Tracks of grouped instruments such as Drums, Bass, Synth or Vocals. Al these grouped Stems (also known as submixes, subgroups, or busses) get edited separately.

 

By smooth mixing these 4 Stems with EQing, dynamic compression and loudness adjustment your song is routed through our regular Mastering chain. We improve your mix and bring your music to the next level by adding punch and power to the bass. Your Song will sound more balanced and airy in the highs by using our top notch mastering processors. In the end you will hear a warm analog character in all your song elements. 

 

The Stem Mastering can be optimized for streaming, CD, download, club sound systems, vinyl or tape. Order this service if you wanna have a in-depth mastering for your music to enhance the sound quality and get a professional sound. 

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 recommend the client a stem mastering. Because the results have always been better than if I had mastered from a stereo file.  With 5 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

 

How to prepare and send Stem Files for Mastering?


Split and bounce your Song in 5 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. Send these Files as 24 Bit or 32 Bit .wav files with a sampling rate of 44.1khz by using wetransfer, google drive or dropbox.  If you have any questions click this Link to use the contact form.

 

The whole mastering process is done after 2-3 working days.

What is a Stems File?


A MP4 STEMS file is a open multi track audio format by native instruments. A file contains your songs split into four musical elements, like a drum STEM, bassline STEM, synth STEM and a Vocal STEM.

 

When you order a Stem Mastering here at mastrng.com, you get a regular stereo .wav file and the NI STEMS file. These Stem file can be used by DJs and Live artists for mixing and remixing with TRAKTOR KONTROL S4, S8, S5, D2 or F1. 

 

To get the best possible sound out of your music, every STEMS track will be  mastered through the same mastering chain that is used on the master track.
