Please listen carefully, every sound in the track, every effect and layer. The music itself and the atmosphere is just super. Listen carefully and you will hear. The album is just awesome.

This album makes me dream away instantly. It is bassy and low, but I like that here. It fits his style.
Will buy for sure!

After many feedbacks about "too much bass in mastering" of our new release, we made a little upgrade. Its not big different, but we fixed some important things.

Listen: https://globalsect.bandcamp.com/album/katedra-we-are-not-alone 

But, let us introduce you to some things about our job. For this album, we made not only mastering but mixing too.

Mastering - it's when the music maker sends to sound engineer the WAV file -6db, no limiter etc. And he tries to make it maximum ideal.

Mixing - it's when the music maker sends to sound engineer all the elements of the track (kick, bass, leads, fxs etc.) and he makes better EQ balance. And after this mastering.  

Here's the list of the tracks with mixing by Dimitro Alienapia (One Day Mastering Studio), and we think he is the big professional:

1. Psy-H Project - Exhalation of Mahavishnu
2. Psy-H Project – Spiritual Experience
3. Psy-H Project - In A Shade Of Dadrrount'got
4. Psy-H Project - Second Coming
5. Psy-H Project - Boloto Trip
6. Psy-H Project - Infernal Candyflip
7. Psy-H Project - Active Meditation
8. Psy-H Project - Chatlane
9. Psy-H Project vs. Alienapia - Ramayana
10. Psy-H Project - Infinite Freedom
11. Psy-H Project - Crystal Worlds
12. Centavra Project - Capsula
13. Imba & Somnesia - Astral Travellers
14. Psy-H Project - Dark Matter
15. Celestial Intelligence - Crystal Gazer
16. Psy-H Project - Precession Of The Universe
17. Nova Fractal & OXI & E-Mantra - Stargate
18. Centavra Project - Terraformer
19. Centavra Project - Strange Object
20. Psy-H Project - The Essence of Bhagavat-Gita
21. Atlantis - Sacred Mantra
22. Fiery Dawn - Searching For UFOs (Median Project Rmx)
23. Omneon - Indian Walk
24. Median Project - The Third Element
25. Raving Universe - Ascension
26. Psy-H Project – Gaura Nitay
27. Centavra Project - Journey To Another Worlds (Mix 2017)
28. Atlantis - Space Mantra 29.
Slow Reflections - In a Rain Drop
30. Median Project - Heaven and Earth (Omneon rmx)
31. Katedra - The MoonShip (mix 2019)
32. Katedra - First Contact
33. Katedra - Ring of Fire
34. Katedra - Nagual
35. Katedra - You Are Not Alone
36. Katedra - Alienated Hallucination
37. Katedra - Radiointerference (mix 2019)
38. Katedra - The Edge Of Spaces

So, like you can see it's a serious amount of job, and it's the one of main reason why people think that Global Sect music has nice quality. Sometimes we have mistakes because it's a very hard job, but anyway, we fixed and saved many tracks.

For Katedra we were making mixing for 3 months, but we made a little mistake in the last step.

Now, our plan is: All the people who bought digital versions can download the new version from the collection. All the people who bought CDs will get 2 versions. First, we will send copies with "bass" mastering and after that, we will reprint CDs and send new copies. We think it will be nice for the collection because in the world will be only 40 copies with the first version of mastering.

P.S. my favorite track after fixed sound is Nagual :)

So, the first bassy version is for mushroom, and the second version is for acid? :rolleyes:
Sounds very good anyway, and maybe even better in general with the new touch.

Holy shit, Alienated Hallucinations :lol:

Edit: And somehow despite how good Alienated Hallucinations might be, it still isn't the best on the album. @GS Concept isn't wrong about Nagual.

I guess most of you are mistaked. It's about mixing not the mastering. Katedra himself has always had this style of mixing: bassy, muddy, industrial. I know because we collaborated long ago on 'Magic Science & Imba - Ghost Town' where he was part of Magic Science, and you can hear his style in the track.

Even if I am not, nor personaly nor professionaly for it/this style of mixing, I support and respect his ideas and presentation of his music. And important thing is freedom which not many labels give you these days but Global Sect does which is amazing. In most cases when I finish and send premasters to label they say 'It's too clean', 'It's more Fullon than Goa', or it's not clean enough or buyers prefer more this or that bla bla bla... here Katedra had complete freedom to express himself musical and production wise.

 

Just relax and enjoy in what he delivers to you as his own Goa Trance without genre/style rules and boundaries :)

Do you guys produce the CD's on-demand? This is very confusing to me.

You said there would be only 40 copies of the original mastering. Did you only produce 40 copies? Or do you produce them by the order?

No , we print many copies in begin and sent 40 copies to clients from it. After that we just reprint only cds and change it in cases.

Yes, big improvement.

And track 1 was many many seconds too long (almost 10 seconds of complete silence, why???), now it is correct.

So big respect for saying honestly and acting like GS did!

Well, the problem was bass and reverb was stereo all the way down to the lowest of frequencies - this is just something you don't do, regardless of aesthetic choices or style. And it was possible to be fixed in mastering (unless it'd introduce some weird phasing / cancellation issues, but there are ways around it as well).

Sevilla In Trance had delay and reverb on bassline, say no more... :lol:

On the low end, i.e. below say 400Hz? I doubt it... It was either going through multiband splitter and the FX was at the upper part, or Side (as in M/S) was high-passed.

Well I suppose he may be right considering it looks like he kinda co-wrote it
