Stereo Mastering Prices

Stereo mastering is the final process before a song is released to the public. This is where levels are balanced, frequencies receive finishing touches, and any other problems with the mix are ironed-out. Files submitted for mastering should be in the highest resolution available, and generally in .WAV or .AIF format. Additionally, for the best possible masters, we recommend removing any pre-mastering processing such as limiting, and keeping the highest peak-level of each song at -3dB or less. This allow us enough headroom to best sculpt the dynamics and over-all sound of your songs. Finished songs are delivered as downloadable Redbook Standard WAV files. Sequencing is available for EP’s and Albums, and is a separate change from our stereo mastering rates.

Mixing Prices (Includes Mastering)

Our mixing service is where we take your individual recorded tracks and apply proper equalization, compression, gating/expansion, automation, fades, and effects to each track. Then, track levels, added processing, and effects are adjusted, blended, and balanced to create a final mix. Finally, the mix is mastered to create a completed song. If you’d like information about how to prepare your tracks for mixing, please visit our mixing page and read about how to prepare your tracks for submission.
