AUDIO MASTERING

Luke Munns has mastered hundreds of successful tracks over many years, from local & international artists, commercials, films & ministries.

We understand the journey as artists - investing countless hours, energy & resource on writing, demoing, refining, recording & mixing songs, then finally to entrust it to a  mastering engineer or robot that can either make or break the entire process either by rushing it through in a hurry, lack of care or incompetence.

When mastering at THE LAKEHAUS STUDIOS, we give each track the professional and personal love and treatment that it deserves.

Giving the time, effort, investment & honor needed to each individual song. We also carefully listen to & technically analyze your musical tastes & reference tracks to make sure that we specifically honor the style, sonic qualities & overall loudness to your preference.

Each track is meticulously referenced back and forth on 3 sets of studio speakers, and checked finally on our favorite set of headphones to create the most enjoyable musical experience for the end listener on whatever system.

I originally started mastering because I was frustrated with constantly getting bad masters back from reputable studios. Mixes that I was happy with would come back badly after mastering - either too much bottom end, or a harsh brittle top end, over compressed, distorted or not loud enough. I even tried the new ‘robot automated mastering’, but it just sounded bland and generic. As a musician myself, I knew what great music should sound like, and I knew it could done much better. So I was determined to learn the art, gain the experience, do it right, and share with others.
