GIVE YOUR MIX THE FINAL TOUCH
Mastering is the final touch after the recording and mixing process. It is utilized to "polish" and enhance your mix to their fullest potential and give them that competitive edge that artist and record labels rely upon in a demanding music market. It makes your mix cleaner, punchier, adding "warmth" and "air" to your sound.
I offer the highest-end digital processors to master your material without the risk of sonic degradation. Whether your recording needs a lot of attention or just a few tweaks, you can be assured it’s going to get the final touches it needs and deserves.
PRO MASTERING BENEFITS:
Sonically enhance, improve and, when needed, even repair your tracks through the use of precision monitoring, EQ, compression, limiting, and noise removal techniques.
Improve how compatible and versatile your tracks are, so that your music will sound its best whether it is heard on a high-end stereo system or a pair of earbuds.
Increase the average volume level of your tracks while still retaining your music’s inherent dynamics.
COHESION AND SEQUENCING
Give your album a great flow. Put the tracks in running order and customize the spacing between songs while keeping the volume level relatively consistent from track to track.

Mastering prices are tailored on a project-by-project basis. Rates assume a standard 3 to 5 minute song. If your genre has different standards, please specify.
What is the difference between a demo and a professional production?A demo is a relatively simple recording with minimal instrumentation intended to demonstrate the song or artist's ability. A professional production is intended for commercial release and distritribution. It features the best possible performances and production, with all the bells and whistles.
Is there a specific genre you work with?I spent many years in the profesional Metal world and specialize in anything resemlbing the genre. However, what I create for my clients isn’t bound by genre. I’ve worked across many genres and I can bring that experience and sound to your next project.
Do I have to be signed to work with you?Not at all! A majority of the clients I work with are independent artists.
How much does a single cost?Rates vary by the scope and complexity of the project and the services required to produce them. I take into consideration a number of things when I calculate a quote (pre-production, studio time, musicians, post-production, etc.). If you would like to inquire about rates, simply fill out the Project Planner. It’s a “no pressure” quote.
Do you offer special rates for Albums?Absolutley, I love working on full length albums and EPs! Please fill out the Project Planner and explain your ideas. I will create a package that will both meet your budget and keep us up-and-running!
How long is your turnaround time?This depends on the capacity of your project. Turnaround times can be anywhere from 1-3 weeks for a single, EP and Albums can push into the 1 month+ range, these are approximations based on schedule availability.
I started writting a song, but havent been able to finish it. Can you help?"Yes I can. However, the process does depend on your writing skills. My main goal is to help you create the best song we can. If I feel like it’s necessary, I may suggest rewriting the song together or bringing in additonal session musicians.
I need a instrumentalist (or drummer) for my record, can you help?"Of course! I work with songwriters often and am a proffesional drummer myself with over a decade of writting experience. I work with fiercely emotive, highly skilled musicians that can add drums, bass, guitar, strings, horns, synth, piano to your music.
How do I book my project with you?Feel free to fill out the project planner above this FAQ to discuss your expectations and goals. We’ll chat about what your project entails such as creative goals, instrumentation, individual roles, number of songs, and we’ll discuss scheduling and pricing.
