A few words about us...
There are many
recording and mastering studios out there. At the same time,
more and more people create music at home, using computer
and software. Why should you send your material to us?
We have more than
15 years of experience on that field. During that time we
worked on just about every genre of music from classical to
hip hop. This, and the level of dedication we put into
making of each track makes us a very reasonable choice.
At IH ECP Studio we have developed the Analogization 3D
process, which gives
digital tracks highly demanded character of top class
analog devices. We use that process during
mastering music and also remastering of finished albums and it gives truly outstanding results. Analogization 3D is unique and it
warm and full sound.
Here are some examples of
quality reastering with Ana 3D used.

use the latest , most acclaimed studio systems and
hardware, reference quality custom monitoring systems, and
above all hi experience and dedication level which enable
us to provide our clients with superior sound quality
emphasizing their work.
Our work includes, among others:
-mastering the whole CD albums using ANA 3D technique
-mastering single tracks
-mastering voice recordings and radio and TV broadcasts
-vocal mastering (acapella, e.g. arias)
-mastering film soundtracks and sounds for computer games
-remastering older recordings, noise and hum removal
-restoring old or faulty recording bringing them to the
wholly new quality
-recording the whole new projects from scratch
We carry out high-class mastering (improving quality of audio tracks) at
competitive and attractive prices. But our goal is not
selling the price- we always concentrate on
absolutely uncompromised quality.
Our motto is: “No matter how well done it is,
we can do it better!”.

is more detailed description of
the NONA 3D mastering steps we apply to each recording:
1 Playback of the
material using reference audio system. Thorough analysis
of tonal balance, panorama, mix proportions and overall
quality of sound.
Also sonic spectrum, phase problems
average and maximum level are analyzed. After such analysis the recording is compared
to best recordings of today's music
to see what should be done and how things can be improved to
make it sound like references.

processing. In digital domain resolution in which we work
has big importance because of errors, which cumulate when
the material of low resolution is being processed. It
happens, because the lower resolutions have shorter sequence
of zeros and ones (called digital word) which describe a
single sample. Therefore low resolution cuts off what can not be described by short digital words.
Cumulating of errors repeats every time when we do
any processing to the material, even when we just change the
volume. Using the high resolution eliminates the errors which happen during low

balance. Dynamics of the recording is the difference
between the most quiet and the loudest moments and also between momentary impulses (called
transients) and average level. Typically best results are obtained with use of relatively
big dynamic differences, even for the music such as heavy
metal rock. Too much compression causes loss of punch and
strength of the recording and also the definition of sound. From the other hand if the differences in
dynamics are too big the recording lacks roundness and
level. Therefore the main aim of this step is to obtain ideal dynamic coherency.

because it makes sound
much more natural and detailed.

sound good. Adding the right amount of ambience at certain
frequencies makes it sound much better and natural.
