Every recording is unique and requires a distinct mastering approach. Some mixes only require clean & transparent processing while others may require a more aggressive tonal shaping. I use a carefully selected combination of tube, solid state and digital signal processors to maximize clarity, depth and detail in your music. You paint the picture and I put a frame on it.
Send 24-bit, or 32-bit (float) stereo wav files at the sample rate of the original recording session. Higher sample rates are better, but please do not up-sample your mixes before sending the files.
Please send the files to the below Dropbox file request link.
Masters take 3-5 days from when the mix is sent. If you need something faster, just ask.
I sequence albums in a way that feels natural from track to track, in any order. If you have specific sequencing requests let me know. If your album sequencing is complex you can create a mock sequence and submit a long MP3 as a reference.
My goal is to get your album 100% perfect on the first version that I send to you. I will often master your project 3-4 times before I return it to you in order to get a perfect balance between the group of songs. If I do not get it right on the first version that I send to you I am more than happy to make changes to my masters for free. Your record needs to be 100% perfect and I am committed to working with you until that is realized. If you would like mix notes before mastering, just email me and I can send you notes.
You will receive two different masters in three file formats for each song that you submit.
Digital Release Masters: 96k_24b Hi-Rez - MfiT Certified (Mastered for iTunes)
Digital Release Masters: 44.1k_16b - Standard Digital
Lower Level Vinyl Release Masters: 96k_24b Hi-Rez - 4 dB lower than the digital masters.
