  • 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.

GETTING YOUR AUDIO FILES READY FOR MASTERING

  1.  If you want the best possible results and you are not experienced with the use of compressors, limiters and EQ,  Do Not compress, limit or EQ your master bus (mix bus).
  2.  The peak level on your master bus (mix bus) should never go above -3dB PEAK.  Anywhere from -10dB to -3dB PEAK is good. Do not worry about the loudness. The loudness will come in the mastering stage.
  3.  Do not change the sample rate and bit depths. Keep these at their original format they where mixed in.
  4.  We accept Wave Files and AIFF Files. 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.
  5.  If you can, leave 2 seconds of silence before and after your audio file.
  6.  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.
  7.  Songs longer than 6 minutes are subject to an additional charge.
