Stem mastering is a mastering process that derives from film mastering. Tracks are bounced down into a number of stems. These stems will generally include the track buses. Ie the drum bus, bass bus, instrument bus, fx bus and vocal bus. Depending on what your track consists of depends on how many stems need to be bounced down into audio. This style of mastering can be applied to all genres of music. Stem mastering achieves a far superior master to conventional analogue mastering, with the aid of the engineer being able to control certain elements of the mix. Stem mastering will achieve a far louder yet more dynamic master.
