Mastering gives your recordings the professional edge they need to stand out against the competition, and Alchemy’s track record is second to none – from Jessie J and Rizzle Kicks, to Guns ‘n’ Roses, Paul McCartney and Oasis – over the years they’ve worked with massive artists.

If your tracks are unmastered, or if you’re looking to upgrade standard mastered tracks to the higher ‘Mastered for iTunes’ specification, we can highly recommend Alchemy. To place an order, just log in to your EmuBands account, and select the ‘Mastering’ menu item.
