    The difference between stem mastering and normal mastering is you can take full advantage of the 24 channel Solid State logic summing mixer. Stem mastering also allows for a lot more precise master as we have full control over a maximum of 12 stereo channels. Many factors go into a stem master where as a master quite simple is one track mastered through a mastering chain.

    Most people opt for mastering and not for a stem master. Stem mastering is good if you are unsure about levels in your track.

    I'm not sure if this is a legal/morally acceptable question but do you have any 'before & afters' that are available to listen to?

    I'm not questioning your skillz or anything haha, just for my own selfish benefit really :rolleyes:

    When have you ever known a mastering house to sleep. As long as the tracks keep coming I'll be awake. I'll sleep when my ears give out in 30 years lol
