Coinciding with the launch of the new website, Chiswick’s Metropolis Studios is relaunching its flagship ‘iMastering’ service. The refreshed, refurbished website allows users a greater choice of engineers and customisation, and is said to be easier to use.
Users can now select from the award-winning mastering team at Metropolis, with full biographies for each engineer. “This means that you’re not getting your music mastered by just anyone but by a proven specialist with industry expertise and experience, getting the most out of your sound,” says Metropolis. (In the previous incarnation of the service, which began over nine years ago, you could not request a specific engineer.)
The process of ordering mastering has been simplified too. “You can now adjust your order whenever you like, so if you make a mistake or change your mind you’re spared the tedium of tracking back through the site.”
Metropolis says it has recognised the boom in ‘bedroom producers’, and developed a speciality service to serve that sector. “Whereas in the past you would have had to spend vast sums of money on studio and engineer costs, Metropolis iMastering is an affordable alternative,” says the operation. “From club tracks to hushed ballads, iMastering has a wealth of engineers whose experience across the musical spectrum can get the most out of any project.”
