We recommend that you contact us as soon as you are ready to begin mixing
-never a bad idea to submit rough mixes during your mix process (no charge), and can often save time (money) in the long run

The recommended approach to mastering a full length record is a 2 part session over a few days:
First session: principle mastering and sequence -client leaves with a reference cd-r or .wav files, or in the case of an unattended session approval masters are uploaded to the client.

Follow up session:
(with a few days in between to evaluate master in familiar systems)
music and sequence fine-tuning and master output

*always listen closely to your master before sending off to press

Cancellations- advise a minimum of 48hrs prior to session.
Please notify of any scheduling changes as soon as you are aware
.

Rates


Mastering time/cost varies according to the number of songs, running time, mix format and consistency, and of course the degree of work required.

As an example, a 10-12 songs/ 40-50 min. album typically runs between 650$-850$, including CD pressing master (PMCD or DDPi) and web masters (.wav files ready to be uploaded to your chosen web aggregator/ digital distributor).
*This is just an estimate, please email for a specific quote.

-completion of the booking form and mix examples are most
helpful in establishing a budget (preferably 24bit .wav rather than mp3)

MFiT (mastered for iTunes high resolution masters) and Vinyl pre-masters require extra preparation and are billed separately.
Tape layback will add 1.5-2 hrs to a session.
Other work that requires more time/ can incur extra charge -extensive editing or de-noising, mix changes/substitutions after mastering has begun, mastering of instrumentals or alternate versions.
