Frequently Asked Questions

+

What is mastering?

Mastering is a process that prepares a song for distribution. A mastering engineer takes into account the destination format (CD, vinyl, streaming, etc.) and then proceeds to optimize playback of the song accordingly. Mastering for club and festival systems is something Black Ghost Audio excels at. Our clients are professionals, and we provide them with a top-tier product.

+

What is Mastered for iTunes (MFiT)?

iTunes has specific formatting requirements for "Mastered For iTunes" songs. By remaining up-to-date on iTunes' submission requirements, we can provide our clients with masters that will be approved, and labeled as, "Mastered For iTunes." To place your songs into iTunes' library, you must use an approved music distribution company such as Distrokid.

Why is my mastered track not as loud as other tracks?

There are two potential reasons for this:

1. "Sound Check" is enabled in your iTunes. This setting automatically adjusts song playback volume to the same level. If a song has been heavily compressed and limited, "Sound Check" will cause iTunes to reduce its playback volume. To disable this setting, navigate to iTunes > Preferences... > Playback.

2. The dynamic range of your track is too broad. Dynamic range is a standout amongst the essential components to consider when attempting to accomplish loudness. The techniques we use to achieve loudness are much more efficient on tracks with a small dynamic range, compared to tracks with a vast dynamic range. Loudness is prepared for on a mixing level and executed on a mastering level.
