Dresden, Germany (February 25, 2004)–XARC Mastering, an Internet specific mastering service, has added a slew of new innovations to its web site and reports a rush of new projects from all over the world. Since launching just two months ago, XARC Mastering’s success has exceeded expectations with more than 30 projects now complete from clients based in 20 different countries.
Recent projects include mastering artist Billy Rogers’ new album The Rock for a U.S. release, a new vinyl release for German trance artists Manuel Schleis & Manuel Reuter for Overdose Records, and the new album Freetown for tribal house meisters Righi & Dan for Italian release on Tribaloide Records. Norwegian band Xploding Plastix came to XARC Mastering to master bonus tracks for a debut album release in Europe and the U.S. And, Spanish techno artist and DJ David Martínez who records under the name David Martzz asked XARC Mastering to master his next two vinyl releases–Subatomic Space / The X Dance and The X Move.
Now, along with general information about the service, XARC Mastering’s founder Lorenz Vauck is adding a “glossary” of mastering terminology to its’ site, that will allow people to further understand what mastering is all about. Additionally XARC Mastering’s web site now allows clients greater ease in downloading tracks in a simple, viewable way, and features a large section on the site that contains testimonials from satisfied customers. Visitors to the site can also now readily hear tracks pre- and post-treatment by XARC Mastering, in a newly expanded section.
Finally, and much expanded on the site recently, is an ongoing “Mastering Forum” on which potential and existing clients are able to talk to each other about current and future issues of mastering.
XARC Mastering founder Lorenz Vauck commented, “It’s been a stunning start to the year. I realized early on that mastering needed to be de-mystified a little, and I also realized that if we made it affordable, secure and speedy, then people would use the service. Our site is a community for all people to get more information and to make more informed choices about this serious side of our business. Of course it’s also nice to hear people commenting so positively about our company, and I personally can’t wait to see the records and the other stuff we’ve got advance bookings for in the charts, on your screens and pumping from your boom-boxes.”
