In 2004, after years producing music and djaying with David across the globe, they both joined the mastering team of TopMaster, illustrious mastering and mixing studio in Paris. Excelling in the job, they chose to found ColorSound.
David stepped into music in 1984, diving into the Hip-Hop culture and started djaying. In the early 90′s, while touring with Florent between London and New York, he became a strong believer and defender of the electronic music. In 1998, David and Florent added their skills and talents for music; They founded Denote Records, and formed the band “Oscar”. In 2004, the famous mastering studio “TopMaster” asked them to join the team. After years of excellence, the duet decided to found ColorSound.

Mastering in analogue stems is a modern method of refining a mix by separating each kind of instrument into its own “stem”. More than any other processes, the stems mastering offers an unprecedented and maximum control in optimizing and enhancing your music. This method also preserves the track’s musicality and dynamics. It is more accurate than applying traditional equalizers and compressors to a stereo mix of complex waveforms. Mastering in stems does what multi-band compressors dream of doing. The number of stems mixed depends on your music. How we do it : The stems of your mix are processed in analog devices and mixed into a summing mixer before going into our upscale stereo mastering chain.
The hard mastering is more likely to be dedicated to EDM music genre ( electronic dance music) rather than other music genre. This audio mastering method will help achieve an extreme loudness, optimizing your volume to the loudest possible. If you are concerned with hard mastering service, please consider, beside commercial loudness needs, that this method will decrease or annihilate sound dynamics and musicality. A louder volume can be obtained upon request with other mastering service, either stem mastering or stereo mastering. This is a matter of taste, commercial purpose, music genre, and hearing. Not sure about hard mastering ? Feel free to get in touch or consult our support for further advices.
