There's no cookie-cutter mastering here. Each project gets our full attention and a custom mastering chain designed to bring out each song's full potential.
Standard stereo mastering is billed on a per-song basis. We are strong supporters of independent music, and can tailor our rates to meet your specific requirements. Factors in pricing may include scheduling priorities, attendance at sessions, number of alternate versions (instrumental, TV, clean, etc), and possible revision time. We do our best to work with any budget and we guarantee the best quality mastering service on each and every project.
We're an Apple-certified mastering studio and can provide high-resolution "Mastered for iTunes" files upon request.
We've worked extensively with different film/TV and trailer music libraries and offer tailored rates for ongoing bulk services.
Sometimes a project calls for more control over the mastering process. For those situations, we offer stem mastering as an option, with summing capabilities through our Neve Genesys console.
Since clients' needs vary greatly with stem mastering from simple summing to more complex audio finishing, we generally charge an hourly rate. Please get in touch for a project-based quote.
After countless hours logged on a project, sometimes music creators just need that one last pair of ears to help get everything sounding the best it can. We can provide an unbiased, outside perspective on a project and depending on what you need, offer feedback on a track or make mix adjustments as part of the mastering process.
We know how important a one of a kind master tape can be - or how fragile and irreplaceable an acetate is. We also know how important it is to get the transfer from these fragile and aging mediums right the first time. Our high resolution restoration, transfer and forensic audio services are trusted in even the most critical and sensitive of situations. In 2016, Capitol/UME and Neil Diamond trusted us to transfer and remaster nearly all of Mr. Diamond's catalogue - 36 studio and live releases - for iTunes (MFiT) and High Resolution Audio (HD-Tracks). Our past clients include NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory, Johnson & Johnson LLP, Neil Diamond, Donna Summer, Gavin Rossdale/Bush, and SONY.
