Audio Mastering is the finalcreative step in the artistic process of recording and involves assembling the artist's mixes into a finished presentation. The result is an equalized, leveled, and sequenced master for reprooduction to CD, vinyl, compressed download, or nearly any other medium.

In 2003, Airshow created the Restoration Center, a suite of services to assist cultural heritage institutions and record labels to digitize analog audio archives and make them accessible electronically. Digitization services, after digital conversion, files can be post-processed to enhance listenability for scholars or to a commercial standard for use in exhibits or release.
Recent clients of the Restoration Center in Boulder include the Adirondack Museum, University Of Colorado Music Library, University of Wyoming American Heritage Center, Dine College and the Navajo Nation in Tsaile, AZ, Naropa University in Boulder, and the National Maritime Museum in San Francisco. .
Several outstanding reissues have benefitted from restoration by Airshow, including the Grammy winning collections "The Anthology of American Folk Music" and a personal favorite "Screamin' and Hollerin' the Blues: the Worlds of Charley Patton."
