Mastering Techno

Analogue equipment for mastering techno

Mastering techno music requires a refined ear and high end equipment housed in a very accurate room. Techno mastering as with many forms of dance music benefits from full range monitoring, this allows me to truly understand what is happening with your kick drum and bass line. The accurate bass response will allow equalization to gently carve the perfect result that will translate correctly to a club situation and beyond. As you can see in some of the following images the room has very deep and copious bass trapping to ensure the low frequency response is flat to 25Hz.

Ideally for techno mastering you need a powerful yet controlled kick and bass interaction that gets the crowd moving and hypnotised. Using PMC IB1S (3 way large format speakers, 10 inch carbon fibre woofer, silk soft dome mid range and a silk tweeter) that go to 25Hz allows a deep insight into the sound from top to bottom, a high definition mid range dome driver and super quality soft dome silk tweeter allows all the details to be heard in your music.

I use a Crane Song Solaris Quantum DAC which has the lowest jitter specifications of any DAC currently on the market, this means the sound produced when reproducing your Techno tracks will be detailed, defined and accurate. This allows me to use both analogue and digital tools to their greatest effect. I will be able to get your music spectrally well balanced so it will translate across all the sound systems it will encounter. I also have Hypex amplifiers (industry standard mastering amplification), very clean, fast transient response, detailed and with plenty of power courtesy of the 500 watts per channel output per channel.
