Mastering comes with free mix notes from lead engineer Jake Stillman. If you are mixing your own tracks this is an important added benefit as it can offer insights into issues that may be better addressed in the mix prior to mastering. Album sequencing and metadata is also included in our mastering service.
Submit your files and metadata via the mastering form below and we will send you an invoice within 24 hours. For new clients, it can be helpful to get in touch to discuss your goals before your first mastering session.

Making sure your tracks are ready for mastering
Make sure you do not have any peaks on your master bus, we recommend peaks no louder than -1. Check the loudest parts of your song and areas with loud hits from percussive elements like drums.
Highly recommend removing or disabling all plugins/processing on your master bus.
DO NOT SEND MP3s! Export .wav or .aiff stereo files using the same sample rate and bit depth as the session.
Make sure the beginning and end of your songs are trimmed to exactly where you want them to be.
Label tracks with the track number and exact spelling of the song title. Use the format: "01Song Name.wav" to avoid any confusion.
