Services

Mastering & Stem Mastering

All Mastering orders include:

  • Master - 24 Bit 44.1Khz WAV File.
  • Streaming Master - 24 Bit 44.1Khz WAV File at -14LUFS.
  • CD Master - 16 Bit 44.1Khz WAV File
  • MP3 Master - 320Kbps.
  • 28-Days Unlimited Revisions - We're confident you'll be happy with the service!

Please allow up to 5 working days, depending on size of order to ensure high quality masters.

 Optional Extras:

  •  Stem Masters +£5 - Gives you the option to have your track mastered using up to 10 stems per song, instead of a single WAV file. Stem Masters can give me more control over how your master will sound if you're unsure about your mix. If the bass is too loud, for example, I can turn down the bass stem, rather than using an EQ which will effect everything in that frequency range.
     
  • Alternate Mix +£5 - Either a Radio Edit, Extended mix or Instrumental of the same song with the same mixdown. This will be put through the exact same mastering chain.
     
  • Fast Delivery +£5 - If you need your songs mastered sooner than 5 days, then Fast Delivery ensures you'll have your music back within 3 working days, depending on size of order:
    Single (1-3 Tracks) - 1 Working Day
    EP (4-7 Tracks) - 2 Working Days
    LP (8-12 Tracks) - 3 Working Days

Preparation

In order to send your files correctly, please follow these simple steps:

  • Make sure that no compression, limiting or any other dynamic altering plugins are used on your master channel (Anything used on buses for mixdown purposes is okay, for example, using compression on a drum bus)
     
  • Before you export your files, make sure the track doesn't exceed -6dB on the master channel. This gives me enough headroom to master your track.
     
  • Export your files at 24 Bit, 44.1Khz WAV. Higher resolution is okay, but no lower than this to ensure a good quality master.
     
  • If you ordered Stem Mastering, make sure each stem is labelled correctly and saved in a folder. Name this folder as "Artist name - Track name". Do this for all tracks if you ordered more than one stem master.
     
  • Feel free to send reference tracks that you're aiming to get your song to a similar level, but please make sure you either send the song in a folder named 'References', or send a suitable link to stream it in the 'Comments/Requests' section
     
  • Once you have sent your files, please make sure to keep an eye on your emails incase I need to ask you to change something. If I need you to correct something and you miss my email, it will only make the process take a lot longer than intended.
