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 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 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 service by artificial intelligence.

New Album “On the Music of the Heavenly Spheres” (2018)

 

About

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

作品解説

古代ギリシアの音楽理論では、音楽の調和(ハルモニア)は宇宙の調和と同じと考えられていた。天体の運行が音を発し、宇宙全体が和声を奏でているという発想である。これは「天球の音楽」と呼ばれた。このような発想の根底には、宇宙が数の原理に基づいている。そして、音楽によってこの原理を体現するという西洋の伝統的思想がある。この作品は「天球の音楽」の思想に影響を受けた。

Statement

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

New Album “The Recovery of Soul Life” (2018)

About

Yasuharu Nagura has performed a new live recording entitled 『The Recovery of Soul Life』that is released May 6, 2018. He performed “the recovery of soul life” on analog moduler synthesizer.

The concept of album is to restore the life of the soul. It is not special. It is to restore the feeling of joy and sadness in daily life, such as village festivals and dedication to deceased people. It is to recognize that the street trees flying at equal intervals are olive trees growing gently.

People do not know what they want. Everyone is moving around because they do not like where they are. Everyone is asleep or yawing on a running train. Children only know what they are looking for and they are lucky. People are not sure what they are seeking because they are corrupted by the culture of ready-made goods and the culture of standarized goods. People can be truly satisified by showing their creative abilities. “Emergence!”

Defining yourself and living makes you lose the whole thing of living.

For example, if a musician is conscious of playing, it will not be music. In order for music to be music, it is an obstacle to have a human-like awkward consciousness there. It is roughly says that wonderful music itself flows. This is what we can say about living. To live is not to analyze but to live itself.
