We’ve just wrapped up recording, producing, and mixing our 11-song debut album, Evolve From Chaos, so it’s time to start the mastering phase. Steven and I spent some time last night experimenting with different sounds that would compliment our songs and make the album sound as cohesive as possible. It’s going to be a challenge with such an eclectic mix of styles across the album, but that’s all part of the fun.
We’re using iZotope Ozone 7 to master everything outside of Reason 8, but it’s a learning process. Ozone is incredibly powerful with so many options. It’s incredible how different it can make your tracks sound from one extreme to the other. Finding the balance is key. Mastering definitely makes the songs sound more professional and polished. We’re excited for everyone to hear the finished product! :)
