Like everything else, it requires a great deal of skill to give
you the results you want. It also requires specialty gear,
which we have invested a great deal of money in obtaining. We
use only the best pre-amps, compressors and E.Q.'s during audio
mastering. All editing is done in the digital domain until
processing, when we then use analog gear to give "Warmth" and
"Air" to the sound. After this, your song is converted back to
digital using only the best 24/96 converters, so that a CD
master can be made to industry standard Red Book
specifications, ready for pressing.
Our rates are per song, not per
hour, this way you know up-front what your project is going to
cost. We offer only Full Service Music Mastering, and it is the
best available anywhere, Guaranteed! Sorry, but we do not
offer basic audio mastering or limited music mastering. (Why
would you even want something that wasn't the best?)
