I CAN ACCEPT THE FOLLOWING FORMATS

- Digital Files - any format, up to 192k samples rate, 24 bit via CD or web transfer
- Cassette Tape - 2 track, 4 track or 8 track
- Vinyl Records for remastering / noise reduction + restoration processes
- Digital Audio Tape
- AAF Files for film mixing / noise reduction + restoration processes

PREPARATION
Before you send mixes, please listen carefully for any clipping, distortion or sibilance.

If mixing in a DAW, set your hardware buffer size as high as possible and make sure audio doesn’t peak above -1dB. For best results keep mix bus processing light.

Please email me with questions.


PRICING

Mastering is billed at $9 per minute of the recording's length, $75 minimum. This includes a mix evaluation prior to mastering and one revision. Added revisions are $4 per minute of recorded audio, $25 minimum.

High resolution files (96khz / 24 bit WAV) and DDP images are complimentary. Vinyl and cassette friendly masters are an additional $30 each, though often one set of analog friendly masters will work for both. If releasing on iTunes, I also highly recommend a separate digital master for iTunes Plus. This costs an additional $20. 

I also offer cassette masters to be used in a multi-target cassette duplicator. I can supply tape for an additional price, but I recommend sending me two tapes you’ll be using. Printing direct to the cassette has many advantages, like the ability to monitor off the record head and process.

Returning customers get 10% off.

If you’re hurting for money, still contact me and we can work something out.



TURNAROUND
Times vary based on scheduling but average around one week. Rush service guarantees a review copy within 3 days for an additional $75.

Review copies are sent for approval via custom DDP player. Once approved I send the final masters as High Resolution WAV and DDP Image. Redbook CDs are available for $25 each and cassette masters are $75 plus cost of tape. Shipping costs are additional as well.
