The mastering work for the New World project finished on Monday. And the packages for CD duplication and Mastered For iTunes have also been delivered. Ball Media is doing the duplication of the physical media.
And so, after almost two years elapsed, we can finally close the project.
George Seara, one of the top audio engineers we have in Canada, mastered the project and he was kind enough to send me his feedback:
Wonderful work. Thoroughly enjoyed working on this one with you again!! Mixes were all well balanced and dynamic – a pleasure to work with!
When you live with a project for so long, it is hard at a certain point to create enough distance from the overall sound. That is one reason why I prefer to work with a top flight engineer to master a project. They can give the final product that extra lift to make it sound its best on a wide array of playback devices.
Final product comes out in a few weeks.
