Mastering For Vinyl

MONO BASS: Mono all bass frequencies below 150-250 hz

LOW PASS: Place a low pass filter on the whole mix starting at around 18-19khz on a mellow slope (12db)

BRICK WALLS: This perhaps is the most important, please avoid using brick wall limiting and over compression. These processors are fine to use when dealing with digital formats but do not work well when cutting to vinyl. They cause distortion and generally sound terrible. Your vinyl is not competing with anything else keep those transients smooth.

DE_ESSER: Sibilants reap havoc on vinyl. Vocals and cymbals are the main culprits as well as some guitars and horns etc… Place a de-esser over these tracks or frequency ranges to avoid this issue.

0DB: Tracks to be supplied at 0db.
