Mastering

Almost there. You’ve avoided (maybe) a few nervous breakdown, ruined relationships, and lost/gained 35 lbs to finish this body of work… and now what…. Mastering?

– You bet !

Mastering not only provides coherence, homogeneity, lustre, and shine to your mixes, it also ‘packages’ audio for optimal rendering (Web video, CD Album, Radio single, Vinyl, etc). A good mastering engineer enhances musical depth of field, width and loudness perception without signal degradation.

This is not a luxury, it’s a very vital part of the process! Skipping this step only hurts you, when  compared to a mastered professional product. Aim for success.

You will be given 2 reference CDs. If the ref CD was approved by you after a ‘car test’, any further tweaking shall incur a $50 charge if under an hour-ish.
Once final Master approved, we will either print you a Master, or deal directly with your pressing plant of choice (included in Album Mastering rates)
