Stem mastering is a process that offers greater control over the sonic shape and balance of your music.
Traditional mastering sees the engineer work on a single (stereo) mix file, adjusting the EQ and dynamics of the music as a whole, which can limit the possibilities to access problem areas of a mix.
"It’s almost like doing a mini mix before the final master. Oli has become an integral part of the process, he knows the music, understands what I’m trying to do, and is able to add that final piece to the puzzle." - Naylor, UK electronic producer
