No fancy stuff
Actually the name serious mastering is chosen a joke in itself. It comes from the fact that tons of people think mastering engineers are some kind of wizards. They are just people like everyone else, except for their exciting job.
A joke? You're not serious?
Yes I am. But mastering to me is not about inflated egos or mysterious voodoo rituals in a holy chambers using sacred equipment with prices of small or even bigger cars. It's about getting the best possible sound for your production. I'm serious when it comes to handling your material since your commercial and artistic future might depend on it. Maybe I'm too serious on this site as well, but that's because I'm also giving courses in mastering so it's a bit of a deformation.
The equipment used is a hybrid of A-class analog hardware and high-end software plugins.

For those who aren't fully informed about mastering a quick explanation:
Mastering, a form of audio post-production, is the process of preparing and transferring recorded audio from a source (file) containing the final mix to a master (file). This end result can then be used for copying and distribution as CD, vinyl, mp3 and other formats.
