Sony Music Studios Internet Mastering (SIM) allows
music producers to upload up to four songs per project, where they can then be
mastered for $99 per track. Mastering is the finalizing process that adds
depth and range to a recording, executes final edits, enhances the overall
sound, and helps establish a cohesive identity for an artist's work. SIM (www.SonyMusicSIM.com) can give any
project a highly professional, studio-quality sound that is tough to accomplish
in home recording systems.
"We see this new service as a great way to extend the Studios' reach," explains
Andy Kadison, executive VP, Sony Music Studios. "New technologies have enabled
us to make extremely high-end services available to musicians everywhere. At
the same time, SIM gives us an opportunity to give up-and-coming musicians an
initial introduction to what an extraordinary facility like Sony Music Studios
can offer to the creative process."
