AUDIO MASTERING

Luke Munns has mastered hundreds of tracks over many years, for local and international artists, commercials, films and ministries.

As artists ourselves, we understand the journey  - investing countless hours, energy and finances into writing, demoing, recording, refining and mixing songs, then to entrust it to a mastering engineer that can make or break the entire process by rushing it through their meters without the care and detail needed.

Mastering at THE LAKEHAUS STUDIOS, we give each track the most professional, personal love and treatment that you deserve.

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

Each track we master 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 possible for the end listener on whatever system they might have.

I originally started mastering because I was frustrated with constantly getting bad masters back from engineers. Mixes that I was 100% happy with would only come back badly after sending off for mastering - either too much bottom end, or a harsh brittle top end, over compressed and mushy, either distorted or not loud enough. At one point I even tried ‘robot automatic mastering’ services online, 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, and have been able to now for over a decade.
