Audio Mastering Rates
Our mastering prices are very competitive with other studios. You will find studios that charge less, however when you compare our equipment, experience, customer service and final sound, Sage Audio has the best rates around for professional mastering. In addition we have discounts for multiple songs and express mastering services when a faster turnaround is required for your project.
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.
