Good news : Préférence Mastering 2.0 is on the way! Soon a new studio in the center of Paris, 100% new acoustically treated room & more gears to come, plus a dedicated custom monitoring specially designed with unique technology, actually being developped in one of the biggest speakers lab! Thanks to all of you, trusting our services since years, making this possible!


As the last stage in the process, mastering should bring the best out of your productions and compositions. Seeking a very pure sound, a perfect dynamic range and homogenous frequency spectrum enhances the listening experience across a wide range of mediums, from large-scale sound systems right down to any personal media player.


While endeavouring to remain faithful to the original works, Preference Mastering use state-of-the-art analogue equipment including high-precision tube & transformers devices, clean compressors, analogue equalizer with outstanding musical quality, and top-of-the-range digital mastering hardware and tools for optimal audio fidelity and listening comfort. Best of both worlds!


Unlike many studios nowadays, we firmly believe that digital and software mastering don’t necessarily provide the best results and sound quality. High-quality analogue mastering is essential for those wanting a professional, studio quality sound.


We regularly test our equipment with a series of very specific measurements to ensure our entire audio chain (analogue and digital) for additional hardware or any configuration change. Preference Mastering guarentees a clean sound without any disturbances in the signal path such as digital aliasing or any unwanted analogue distortion.


Above all, we aim to highlight the expressive character of your music.


Once all these criteria have been taken into account, it is then necessary to homogenise all the tracks on an album in relation to each other – in terms of the subject’s individual perception of sound levels and in terms of spectral balance. This leads to a better listening experience by polishing the sound and flow of the album for the listener.
