Mastering Studio

 

 


OUR MASTERING SERVICES INCLUDE THESE THINGS
  • Optimization of your Peak and RMS volume levels for that right level of relative loudness
  • Improvement of low-end definition and will power to your mix
  • Adding clarity and sheen to the high-end of your mix
  • Adding warmth to your audio with our high-end analog gear
  • Establishing a sonic field for all your tracks
  • Correction of mix deficiencies with equalization
  • The matching of levels throughout all your songs. So each song flows from one to another and each song will be at the same perceived volume from one song to another
  • Dynamic controlled processing with the correct use of compression
  • Stereo Image Enhancement, if needed and if it doesn't degrade the lower frequncy ranges in the center channel.
  • Removal of all unwanted noise throughout your tracks. This includes before the song starts, during the song is playing, and after it ends. This is for pops, clicks, crackles, hiss and any other artifacts in your audio. Note that not all artifacts can be removed during the song without degrading the sound quality of the song
  • Editing and fixing the timing between your tracks
  • The insertion of fades if applicable and if we are told to do so before we start
  • Arranging of tracks for its final sequence
  • Upon request at the time of ordering, we are happy to convert and send you high quality 320 bitrate MP3 files with every mastering option. This is the highest MP3 bitrate possible.
  • The difference is night and day between a professionally mastered song and one that was not professionally mastered!

GETTING YOUR AUDIO FILES READY FOR MASTERING

  • If you want the best possible results, do not compress, limit or EQ your master bus (mix bus). Do not insert compressors, limiters and equalization on the master bus
  • The peak level on your master bus (mix bus) should never go above -3dB. Anywhere from -10dB to -3dB is good
  • Do not change the sample rate and bit depths. Keep these at their original format.
  • We accept Wave Files and AIFFFiles. MP3's degrade the sound quality and is not a recommended format for mastering. If MP3's are all you have, then we can work with it
  • Leave 2 seconds of silence before and after your audio file
  • If you are sending more than one audio file, you should zip them into a zip folder before uploading it to us. This makes the upload and download process faster
  • Songs longer than 6 minutes are subject to an additional charge

Mastering Turnaround Time

TURNAROUND TIME

Turnaround Time is usually within 24 hours for 1 to 3 songs. For 4 to 9 songs, its usually 1 to 3 days. For a complete CD/album, the time shall be no longer than 4 days from receipt of material & payment. Times could vary depending on our work load, but we are good at keeping the posted turnaround times.

If you selected an audio mastering option that includes a physical master grade CD, please allow an extra 2 -3 days for shipping. Albums should be no longer than 74 minutes (do to red book specs) and songs should be no longer than 8 minutes long. All CDs are shipped through the United States Postal Service


ISRC CODES

If you do not have your ISRC codes, the CD replicating plant can embed the codes for you at the time of pressing. They could charge you, but, most will not! With that in mind, I think its best for us to embed the codes for you. ISRC codes are not necessary to have for CD replicating and CD duplicating, but its good to have them.


PURCAHSING ADDIONAL GOLD MASTER CD's

$15 for each additional gold master CD when purchased at the same time. All prices included shipping and handling. We use Taiyo Yuden Gold Master Disk for our Master CDs.
