The Difference between Mixdown and Mastering

mix down & mastering by Yasuharu Nagura | the highest sound quality with 44.100 kHz, 16 bit, wav file

“Mixdown” is to adjust the volume and sound quality of each instrument in the song. It is like a rasping on furniture. Because each musical instrument is played on a separate track, each unit can be raised and lowered. You can apply echo and other effects to songs. You can also adjust the pitch of the song.

Making the final polishing work is called “mastering”. Throughout the album, it is to match volume and the sound quality so that you do not feel uncomfortable even if you listen to each song. It is like painting varnish on furniture. You can adjust the sound pressure using designated software. Currently, there are mastering services by artificial intelligence.

About

Yasuharu Nagura has performed a new live recording entitled 『On the Music of the Heavenly Spheres』that is released August 1, 2018.

Statement

In ancient Greek music theory, music harmony (Harmonia) was thought to be the same as the harmony of the universe.

It is the idea that the operation of the celestial body emits sound and the whole universe plays harmony.

This was called “celestial music.”

At the root of this idea, the universe is based on the principle of numbers. And there is a Western traditional idea to embody this principle by music.

This album was influenced by the philosophy of “celestial music.”
