Bender Mastering Studio
Bender Mastering Studio is Portugalâ??s first dedicated mastering facility, located in Porto, providing attended sessions locally and unattended & online mastering for the rest of the world. Mastering is the final step before the distribution or manufacturing a music record and is, therefore, one of the most important stages of audio production, mostly because it is the final chance to get everything to sound as great as it can possible do.
Mastering is the process of converting mixes to records, and prepare them to be distributed or manufactured by producing high-quality masters, in CD form, DDPi, digital files or even vinyl lacquers. Our studio is equipped with some of the greatest analogue mastering gear from brands like Prism Sound, Maselec, elysia, TK Audio or Thermionic Culture, complemented with a vast selection of digital tools from manufacturers such as Softube, Sonnox or FabFilter. Along with a high-end monitoring system from Focal and proper room acoustics, our studio guarantees the right environment for mastering music.
