Mixtering: A working model for an enhanced sound quality in electroacoustics

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Since the beginning of the 1980s, there has been an ever-widening gap in terms of sound quality between the electroacoustic and commercial music milieux. Building upon their extensive experiences in both of these milieux, the authors propose a working model for the re-establishment of a certain standard in the sound quality in electroacoustic work, which involves extending the role of mastering to assume part of the role of mixing. The term “mixtering” is proposed for this practice.
