Mastering

$30 PER SONG


Before you send us your song for mastering, please make sure that you follow the guidelines below.

Leave at least 4dB headroom (no signal goes above -4dB FS on the master channel throughout the entire track).
Disable any processing on the master bus (make sure there isn't any limiter, EQ, compression, etc).
Export the Pre-Master at a sample rate and bit depth that are native to the project and make sure dithering is disabled.

Mixing

STARTING AT $60 - prices vary depending on how many stems, contact for details


Preparing your stems properly is very important for the mixdown process. For the most part, each channel in your song should go into it's own stem. Sometimes though, it is good to group certain sounds together into one stem.

For instance, your Kick drums should always go into their own stem, as well as your Snare drums. However, your Open Hi Hats and Closed Hi Hats can be grouped into one "Hi Hats Stem", and all of your other cymbals can be grouped together into a "Cymbals Stem", and so on.

As you export each stem, please be 100% sure to use the same rules as the mastering guidelines:

Leave at least 4dB headroom (no signal goes above -4dB FS on the master channel throughout the entire track).
Disable any processing on the master channel in the mixer (make sure there isn't any limiter, EQ, compression, etc).
Export each stem at sample rate and bit depth that are native to the project, and make sure dithering is disabled.

All mixdowns include 5 free revisions for any small changes you would like to have made. 45 stems maximum.
