Our Famous 3 Steps For
Online Mastering

Swift Mastering has been one of the very first studios in the UK to offer online mastering services. Over the last decade we have managed to develop an amazingly effective online mastering experience, which is the very next best thing to actually physically attending the mastering session.

Our 3 Steps online mastering service has been developed to make sure, that you always feel included with your mastering project, while giving you an unprecedented level of protection. This is very important if you are a new client whose trust is still to be gained.

In other words, there is no way you cannot be FULLY SATISFIED with us.

We achieve this by blending together several key aspects of modern workflows:

professional consultancy (mix evaluation, production choices etc…)

constant and reliable communication scheduled to suit your needs

project management platform support (?) for a neat and uncluttered working environment

But that is not it…

Stretching this concept further, we developed a new and innovative service called iNTouch mastering which is the closest thing we know of to an attended session. This service combines the benefits of sitting in during the session with the practicality of the online framework. Please read here for more information.

We believe online mastering doesn’t have to be a one way street, nor does it have to be informal or detached. This is why after more than 10 years in this business we are still here, going stronger than ever.

The online session however, can be fit in around the studio’s schedule in order to minimise down-time. This is why online sessions are generally cheaper.

More importantly, an online session will have communication going between client and ME from the word go. There will be a phase where your mixes will be listened to and comments will be made in order to maximise the results of the whole mastering process.
Once the actual mastering session has been scheduled, constant updates will be issued, either via email, telephone or other platforms (Whatsapp, Facebook etc. as it is preferred by the client) until the job is finalised.

Online Mastering | Earning Your Trust

In the early days of online mastering, online mastering studios had a bit of a stigma. Fake credits, fake equipment lists, and dubious working practices were reported on some “online studios”.

Although there was an element of truth, it is safe to say that just a small minority belonged to this category.

Nowadays, online mastering has become very popular (especially after the pandemic of 2019) and it has become the norm for many artists, management companies, and record labels worldwide.

As a rule of thumb, if in doubt, cross-reference the studio’s credits, give the studio a call to set up a video meeting, or check they show on their site a valid landline number and full postal address.

Please do not confuse online mastering studios with automated mastering websites (the classic click, upload, and “master”). The so-called robot-mastering sites where you can have a track mastered at the click of a mouse are not mastering studios. It is not our intention to criticise nor denigrate such services, we just want to merely state that we are not one of them and that:

  • nothing is either automated or batch processed in our online sessions.
  • we do not use AI algorithms for our online sessions (if AI mastering it is even a thing)
  • all our masters are made through our analogue chain and tailored-made to emphasise the best qualities of your music.
