Mastering is the final and absolutely necessary treatment for your song. Only a professional sound engineer in a music mastering studio can do it correctly. Professional mastering is not about increasing the loudness or adding some compression to the mix. Mastering in our online music mastering service is done to finally give your song the top-chart power and beauty of the sound for which you were preparing your composition during all the previous stages including mixing.
With mixing we combine all the instruments, making sure they follow the rhythm. We correct the pitch if needed, add different plugins to the recorded tracks or stems, and position each one of them in the stereo image. When the mixing is done, ideally, all the elements of the song are cohered together well.
After that comes mastering. A professional audio mastering engineer listens to the entire composition and corrects the collective sound, not the separate tracks.
Of course, there can be more improvements that the specialist from online audio mastering services can decide to implement, but all of them should pertain to the operations that can be done to the song as a whole.
Sometimes, however, mixing mistakes do surface during mastering, and they can not be fixed other than by returning to the mixing procedure and making amendments. And after that, mastering will be able to make the song perfect.
Working with loudness within specific parts of the song and with the whole piece
Using compression to bring the low volume parts up when needed
Working on parts of the song that need improvements
Adjusting frequencies with the equalizer at certain time spans and for the whole composition
Suppressing unwanted noise frequencies, creating more space
Applying different plugins and tools to the whole song to make the sound rich and top-quality

Whatever the plans for your song or album are, whether it’s to get to the top of the world charts, or just to surprise certain people, or bring a smile to the face of your loved one, it’s always better to have it mixed and mastered by a professional sound engineer.
Do you know that artists, as a rule, don’t like to show anyone their unfinished paintings? They don’t, and there is a simple reason for that. Artists know that people will not truly appreciate any creation until it’s finished because nobody can look inside the artist’s mind. You may imagine your song, and your music in their perfect sound, and fully appreciate and love it, but nobody else can, until the composition actually sounds perfect and spotless from their speakers or in their headphones.
So, no matter what audience you are targeting with your music, you need to bring the sound to perfection in order to be able to share it with people. Otherwise, it will only remain as a perfect idea in your head, and for everybody else, it will be a something’s-wrong-with-the-sound piece.
Moreover, music is an industry with its rules and rapidly changing trends and standards. If you wish your song to succeed on radio or streaming platforms, if you put your audio master online, it should be done according to the requirements of today’s technology and music fashion, not yesterday’s but today’s.
During mastering, a professional sound engineer from song mastering services will bring out the best sides of your song, working on it according to the music and style. He or she will help develop the impression that the melody is meant to bring individuality, and the mood of the entire song. By that, the whole composition will receive even more depth and clarity, and the main theme will be enhanced. Some little faults of mixing will be mended.
On the contrary, what the application on a music mastering website is going to do, is to apply some standard algorithms to your song. There will be no individual approach and no detailed fixing, just some general loudness and acoustic improvements that the algorithm would use also with any other music piece. If you try to master vocal online with the application, it will go with the same average approach. Seriously, your song is not worth being treated like that.
We live in the era of machines and artificial intelligence. Robots can perform amazing things now, they drive cars, talk with you and order food from the supermarket. They assemble complicated equipment and cook food. But they can not enjoy music, nor can they understand any of it. Despite the progress with artificial intelligence and technologies, robots still can not provide the necessary means for artistically improving music.
