Stem-mastering goes beyond the usual stereo signal. This is the area where we work with the instrumental-groups; also sometimes referred to as submixes, which are subgroups, such as vocals, basslines or drums. How the mix gets separated initially into the specific groups depends on the type of music and the production.
Afterward, these groups can then be edited separately and joined together at the end in a stereo mix, using our SPL summing mixer. As expected, this naturally provides more flexibility during processing and qualitatively represents a subtle leap forward musically, delivering more “warmth” and “punch”. Furthermore, we offer processing of the individual groups or the sum using our high-quality analog compressor from Prime Analog.
