One common denominator in all commercial music is that it is mastered. This has created a visceral expectation to the untrained ear.
As the industry changes, mastering engineers have become more in demand to fulfill this expectation specifically for new media outlets. Music libraries, production houses, and artists are competing with major record labels vying for alternate revenue streams capitalizing on music for new media. Labels and artists are mastering TV tracks and libraries are now sending their catalogs to mastering facilities.
This development along with new technology has created some changes in the way mastering studios can service clients, one example being the delivery of raw files vs. finished and edited CD’s.
This panel will ask, “What remains the same and what has changed?”
